Health Services

Welcome to Marist from Health Services! Our job is to help keep you healthy and informed. To that end, we work closely with the entire Marist College community as well as the Dutchess County and New York State Departments of Health.

There are a lot of changes on campus this year, including where you will find us! In order to meet Reopen guidelines, we have relocated to a different office to ensure the safety of the community. We’ve also had to modify the way we see patients to minimize risk for all involved.

Flu shots are mandatory this year and to help students meet this requirement, there will be flu clinics on campus regularly throughout the Fall semester. In addition, students will have ample time between Fall and Spring semesters to get their flu shots at home, if they prefer. Documentation of flu vaccination must be uploaded to the Marist Health Services Patient Portal by January 15, 2021.

During the academic year, students are required to report COVID testing at the time of testing or immediately thereafter, regardless of where the testing occurs, so that the College can appropriately plan and protect the safety of the entire Marist community. Please contact Health Services during business hours to report your test or contact the Office of Safety & Security (845-471-1822) after hours.

Attention All Incoming Students

Marist Health Services utilizes Medicat, an Electronic Medical Records system, for students to submit health information through an online portal. Please proceed to my.marist.edu/health-services for a link to the patient portal and instructions on how to submit required health documentation. Also on that page is information about local providers, pharmacies, and other relevant health resources.
