If You Get Sick

You are automatically enrolled into the Wright State Health Insurance plan unless you are covered under another approved insurance. If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, you should seek medical care right away. Student Health Services (937-245-7200) is the preferred point of first contact for Dayton Campus students. Student Health Services can conduct a telehealth appointment to assess symptoms and refer students for testing.
