Hurricane Ida Update: All Campus Health services including the Health Center for Student Care, Counseling Center, and Pharmacy are currently closed for in person appointments due to Hurricane Ida until 9/27. Campus Health will reopen for telehealth appointments on 9/21. For medical needs, the Nurse Advice Line is active and can help you make decisions about whether to make an appointment with an outside health care provider, how to take self-care measures, how to renew prescriptions or answer medication questions, and much more. Call 504-862-8121, leave a message, and a nurse will return your call. For mental health support and crisis support, The Line is available 24/7 to Tulane students. Call The Line at (504) 264-6074. We are not able to retrieve medications left behind on campus or to ship medications from the Student Health Center at this time.

Travel Health

The Health Center offers travel health services to students preparing for international travel. Services may include:

  • International travel consultations
  • Country-specific information
  • Immunizations
  • Travel prescriptions

How to Make a Travel Health Appointment

Please note that the procedure for making a travel health appointment is different from a making a primary care appointment at the Health Center. You will not make this appointment via the Patient Portal.

We recommend that you make a Travel Health appointment 3 to 4 months prior to international travel.

  • Log in to the Patient Portal and click on the Forms link.
  • Access the Travel Clinic Screening form under the Travel Forms heading. Fill out the form and submit.
  • A nurse will review your travel plans and contact you to make an appointment at the Health Center. This may come in the form of a phone call or a secure message. Be sure to monitor your email, so you don't miss any messages.

Travel Health Appointment Cost

The cost of the office visit is $100, but this cost is fully covered by the Tulane-sponsored Student Health Insurance Plan (T-SHIP). If you don't have T-SHIP, check with your health insurance provider to find out your out of pocket cost.

Immunizations (as needed) are also billable. Check with your insurance to find out your out of pocket cost for immunizations.
