Due to anti-trust laws we cannot provide medical services to students
who are no longer enrolled in classes. Students who are no longer
enrolled in classes at ECU but need a follow up for an existing problem
will be allowed a grace period of two weeks post graduation to see a
provider. Graduates will not be seen for care of new problems or
complaints as the grace period is only to follow up on previously
addressed issues. Students no longer enrolled should secure the
