Graduate Students Immunization Compliance Information
June 16, 2017

Graduate programs upload student information differently than undergraduate programs. As a result, access to the online database for immunization compliance may be delayed. We recommend that graduate students submit their immunization dates at the end of the summer semester. For more information on immunization compliance, please refer to our State Immunization Requirements page.

Conjunctivitis at Purdue
June 7, 2017

Please be advised that there is a higher than expected rate of conjunctivitis (pinkeye) diagnosed in students coming to the Student Health Center. According to the Center for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), conjunctivitis may be caused by viruses, bacteria, or allergens. It is often difficult to determine the cause because some symptoms may be the same, regardless of the cause.

For more information about conjunctivitis, symptoms, treatment, and how to prevent its spread, please click the Learn More link below.

Charges at PUSH
May 8, 2017

All students who are enrolled full-time and who have paid student fees are not charged for office visits with a doctor or a nurse practitioner, during the semester (first day of class to graduation) in which the fee was paid. All ofther services such as office procedures, laboratory tests, radiology films, physical therapy visits and medication administration are charged. PUSH is out-of-network, which means that if you receive that service at PUSH, your insurance company will be billed, and if there are additional charges, you will be responsible for those charges.

PUSH Does Not Provide "Excused Absence Notes"
March 29, 2017

The Purdue University Student Health Center (PUSH) does not provide "excused absence notes" for students missing class. The purpose of this practice is two-fold: 1. only the instructor can excuse a student from class, and 2. to eliminate unnecessary visits from students whose sole purpose is to obtain a class absence note for their professors, preventing a time slot from being used by a student seeking PUSH services. If an instructor requests evidence of a student seeking PUSH's services for an illness, the student may use the receipt provided to them at the time of their visit as proof. This receipt only provides documentation of the visit. The decision to excuse a student from class remains entirely up to each individual instructor. For further information regarding the Attendance Policy at Purdue University, please see Regulations, Classes, Attendance:

In the State of Indiana, the employer determines who provides medical evaluation and care to employees who are injured at work. For all Purdue University student employees, there are two designated workers compensation medical facilities and PUSH is not one of them. For all other students, be sure you know where you are to go for medical care in the event of a work related injury or illness. Students who are injured on the job must follow their employer's workers compensation policy to ensure that they receive the care that they need and to ensure that the costs of the care does not become their responsibility. While PUSH would like to provide all students with necessary care, there are potential financial risks for workers compensation care. Follow your employer's policy to get the care you need, not have to pay for care and, continue to be gainfully employed.
