Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) supports student well-being by providing health education, prevention, promotion and treatment, ultimately influencing academic achievement and connectedness with campus and community.
Student Health and Counseling Services operates out of the COPE Center (Counseling, Outreach and Prevention Education) in the Marcovich Wellness Center. SHCS offers free services both on-campus and off-campus to eligible UWS students. On campus services include free counseling, health education services and referrals. Off -campus services include free medical services at St. Luke's Mariner Medical Clinic, at the Health Care Clinic and psychiatric services (SHCS referral required) at Essentia Health's Behavioral Health.
All medical services are coordinated through St. Luke's Mariner Medical Clinic located at the Mariner Mall, 109 N 28th St. E, Superior, WI; 715-395-3900 . Students should identify themselves as UW-Superior students. Students' medical needs will be assessed, whether they need simple medical advice or an appointment with a physician.
Free transportation to and from the clinic (from and back to UW-Superior campus only; not to an off-campus address) is available through UW-Superior by calling Courtesy Cab at (218) 590-9222 and showing a student ID to the driver. If a student requests to be dropped off anywhere other than UW-Superior campus, the student will have to pay cab fare.
Individual health insurance is available to enrolled students. It is recommended that all students who are not covered by their family's insurance plan purchase this or some other type of medical insurance. Information and enrollment packets are also available at the Yellowjacket Union Information Desk or by calling (715) 394-8236 . Health insurance is mandatory for international students and student athletes.
