Welcome to Health Services!
Student Health & Psychological Services at Norco College strives to engage students in making informed decisions about their health and well-being. Health and wellness strongly correlate with academic success. Missing class due to physical or mental illness could significantly impact your academic performance and, in most cases, can be prevented. Student Health & Psychological Services are available to students currently enrolled in a minimum of one credit and who have paid the Student Health Fee. For a full list of services and resources, download our FALL 2020 BROCHURE.
