When students begin school at Marquette, they are often managing their own healthcare for the first time. You, as a parent, can provide valuable information and guidance to your son or daughter to ensure that (s)he takes the right steps to stay healthy.

Before your son or daughter comes to Marquette

Please note that specified brand name medications mentioned are merely suggestions, and may be substituted with comparable generic products.

While your son or daughter is at Marquette, you should know that:

  1. The Marquette University Medical Clinic is very similar to the primary care clinic that you are accustomed to at home. We operate on an appointment-based system, during business hours (for our current hours, please visit our hours page). Same day appointments are available for acute and urgent care.
  2. Full-time Marquette undergraduate students are assessed a segregated health fee, each semester, as part of their tuition and fees. This entitles students to unlimited visits to the Marquette University Medical Clinic; there are no visit co-pays. However, additional fees may apply for medications, lab tests, injections, intravenous fluids, vaccines or orthopedic supplies, and will be discussed with the patient at the time of the visit. Any charges incurred should be paid at the time of service by cash, check, Marquette Cash, Visa, MasterCard or bank/credit/debit card. MUMC is unable to bill insurance carriers at this time, but students may request reimbursement from their insurance company by submitting an itemized receipt, which can be generated at the time of payment.
  3. Graduate, professional and part-time undergraduate students may also pay the per-semester health fee at MUMC anytime during the semester to access our services. Students not paying the per-semester health fee may still access health services on a fee-for-service basis.
  4. Students who need after-hours or emergency care have many accessible facilities near the Marquette campus. For a list of nearby urgent cares and emergency rooms, visit our emergency care page. Students are responsible for payment for services obtained at these facilities.
  5. The Marquette University Medical Clinic is restricted from releasing patient information to third parties under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). Therefore, patient health information (dates of visit, diagnoses, billing, etc) is confidential and cannot be released to a third party – including parents – without patient authorization. Patients who would like to authorize a third party to receive oral information about their visit to the Marquette University Medical Clinic must sign a Release of Medical Information Form PDF Icon. Patients who would like to authorize a third party to receive paper copies of their medical records must sign a Release of Patient Medical Records Form PDF Icon.
