Healthcare

  • OWU's University Student Health Center provides medical care on an outpatient basis to all students. The Health Center is staffed by physicians, a Certified Nurse Practitioner, a Registered Nurse, and an insurance specialist/secretary. Students whose illness necessitates hospitalization will be taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in Delaware. 
  • OWU's Counseling / Mental Health Services seeks to assist all students in personal and professional development both within their college experience and beyond. Counseling Services works to help students of all intersecting identities successfully transition through various academic and interpersonal challenges to attain their individual goals and optimize their learning experiences.
  • Dental Services: The University does not provide dental health services. The International Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan does not cover dental services (except for those related to injury to the mouth). Dental services in the USA are very expensive. We strongly urge you to have a complete and thorough dental check-up before you depart your home country and strongly urge you get all dental issues attended to before your departure.
