The Wells College Transportation Department offers scheduled daily shuttles to Ithaca and Cornell University utilizing the Wells College vans on a daily basis. Students who plan to utilize the shuttle service for their cross-registration classes are encouraged to review the shuttle schedules found in the Campus Safety office or on the Transportation page prior to registering for their cross-registered classes. The Transportation Department does not offer special transportation services to Ithaca College or Cornell University on a regular basis. The Transportation Department does not offer shuttle service to Cayuga Community College unless such service is deemed necessary by the dean of the college in special circumstances.
Health care for students is available at the Community Medical Center located at the Northwest corner of the Wells campus. It is staffed by two physicians and a certified Family Nurse Practitioner, with day and evening appointments available. Routine health care at the Community Medical Center is covered by student health insurance. However, outside laboratory tests, x-rays, consultations, or surgery may not be covered. Please consult the Student Health Plan brochure for specifics.
Professional counseling services are available at the Community Medical Center. When a student requires extended counseling services (beyond six visits), the student and her or his family and/or guardian are responsible for making appropriate arrangements.
Entering students are required to submit the medical forms in the New Student Enrollment Packet; these include an immunization record and a consent form (for students under the age of 18) signed by the student's parent or guardian authorizing the Wells staff and its consultants to administer emergency treatment or surgery.
If you have a documented disability and wish to request accommodation to ensure equal access to your education at Wells, you must disclose your disability and provide official documentation of the disability from a professional qualified to make the diagnosis and recommendations about accommodations that relate to your disability. You must also provide a signed Disabilities Disclosure Form so that the Coordinator of Student Achievement can notify faculty and relevant people about your disability and approve accommodations. This form is included in the New Student Enrollment Packet, available online, or in the Office of Academic and Student Life. The College's disabilities policy is located in the Community Handbook.
