Can I access the Student Health Center if I am living out of state?

The Champlain College Student Health Center provides both telehealth and in person care as needed to all students studying and living on campus or within Vermont. 


Our ability to support students living outside of Vermont will depend on the context. Regulations allowing the practice of medicine over state boundaries varies from state to state, but is generally not permitted. While some states relaxed regulations while under State of Emergency, these temporary loosening of regulations are subject to change at any time. 
If you will be studying remotely outside of Vermont and are in need of non-emergency health support, we invite you to call us to explore how we can support you. Our capacity to offer medical care will depend both on current regulations as well as if high quality medical care can be provided remotely based on your particular health needs.

What if I need to travel outside of Vermont during the semester?

All members of the campus community are required to follow the State of Vermont Cross State Travel Requirements if traveling out of state during the fall semester. Students are encouraged to stay in Vermont for the duration of the semester to avoid the need to quarantine on your return to the state. If you must travel, you are required to notify the College by completing this form that will allow the Student Health Center to advise you on quarantine requirements, including the possibility of arranging quarantine housing.
