Stetson Health Service
Stetson Health Service's (SHS) mission is to promote optimal health and wellness, and disease prevention and provide quality health care that is appropriate, affordable, accessible and relevant. We strive to empower students to be self-directed and well-informed and to continually improve the standards of health care.
SHS is your doctor's office on campus for non-emergency health care needs. Our clinic is run in partnership with AdventHealth and provides primary care to students and employees including their dependents. Patients are seen by appointment and services are charged through health insurance with self-pay discounted rates available for the uninsured.

As part of the university’s effort to combat COVID-19, Stetson has provided free testing to students and employees for over three years. Due to an increase in recent demand, all free at-home COVID-19 tests have been distributed and no more supplies are available on campus. Understanding that testing may still be needed, here are the current testing options available locally:
Stetson Health Service: All patients must have an appointment. Rapid Antigen tests will be administered for symptomatic patients at the provider’s discretion. The provider’s visit and the diagnostic tests are charged through insurance. Please call 386-822-8150 for appointments.
Local Pharmacies (Walgreens, CVS, etc.): At-home COVID-19 tests are widely available at local pharmacies with prices ranging from $10 to $25. Local pharmacies are still offering on-site testing in addition to the option to purchase at-home tests. Please contact the pharmacies directly or visit their websites for more information about testing availability and costs.
Primary Health Care Providers: If your primary health care provider is local, you can contact their office for other available options for COVID-19 testing.
Stetson University follows the current Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines for COVID-19. Therefore, this transfers decisions to personal responsibility for our faculty, staff and students to monitor for symptom development and self-isolate when needed, as per the CDC's COVID-19 Isolation Protocol.
Students will be responsible for notifying their professors, on-campus supervisors and any close contacts of their isolation status. Employees will be responsible for notifying their supervisors and close contacts.
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home. You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days. Use the CDC's Isolation and Exposure calculator to assess your dates and for additional information on when to end isolation.
If you're new to Stetson University, whether as a first-year or transfer student, you should start with this page, which explains everything from what you'll need to satisfy your health form requirements to what you should bring with you when you arrive on campus.
As with most colleges, all students enrolled at Stetson University are expected to have adequate health insurance to cover them while attending the university. This section explores options for students without health insurance and what to do if you're an international student.
