Health Services


The mission of Student Health Services is to provide health care and education to students in support of their well-being so they may attain their educational goals, and to serve as a health and medical resource for the campus community. The Student Health Services will provide medical, dental and mental health services for students who are enrolled and attending classes. In promoting wellness, both physical and emotional, students are encouraged to choose positive life-styles. YOU MUST BE ENROLLED IN THE CURRENT SEMESTER TO RECEIVE SERVICES!

Student Health Services Fee explained

The Student Health Services Fee provides access to physical, mental, dental and health education services to AVC students. The cost is $19 per Fall and Spring semester and $16 per Intersession and Summer session. All students are required to pay this mandatory fee. Failure to pay fees by the deadline will result in all your classes being dropped.

Only if a student adheres to the teachings that they rely exclusively upon prayer for healing may they complete a waiver form in the Student Development and College Activities Office. Every waiver will be reviewed by the Dean of Student Development and Services. All decisions will be made by the dean and the students will be informed by e-mail within 48 hours if their waiver has been approved or denied. In addition, the Cashier’s Office will be notified and the Student Health Service fees will be assessed or not assessed depending on the decision.

Students must submit the waiver form at least 48 hours before the payment deadline to allow time for processing.  Students may submit their waiver request form prior to their registration date to allow time for processing.

Refund of Student Health Services Fee

The Student Health Services Fee will be refunded in full to those students who totally withdraw from all classes within the first two weeks of instruction.


The Care-A-Van provides health services to Antelope Valley College students, and we also provide educational information to our students via health related events held throughout the year.

Physical, Dental and Mental health services are available for students as well as health education and prevention activities.  Students are required to pay the Student Health Services Fee except for religious reasons.  Students must come to the Student Development and College Activities office to complete the waiver each semester and term.

To make appointments for medical, dental, and personal mental health services, stop by the Student Development and College Activities office, SSV 180, or call the Student Health Services line (661) 722-6300 ext. 6683.
