As a part of tuition and fees, the health fee at NC State covers routine visits to providers (physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners). Services with a charge are offered at prices competitive with the community.

NC State Wellness and Recreation

NC State Wellness and Recreation empowers the Wolfpack community to thrive. Together, we explore and grow in these six elements of wellness: purpose, financial, physical, emotional, social and community. Our programs, services and facilities enhance academic success by assisting students in developing skills and resilience needed for college and beyond.


If you are concerned about a fellow student’s mental health or that they may harm themselves or others, you can submit a referral to NC State CARES. A Prevention Services counselor will reach out to the student and assist them in accessing resources that can assist them in their success.
