Student Support Services
The Powell Resource Center
All graduate students in the Marion campus programs, including MPAS Program students, have full access to the services of the Powell Resource Center - both on the Emory campus and on the Marion campus. These services include academic success services (e.g., academic counseling, exam-taking and study skills), counseling services, and disability support services. To better accommodate the schedules of SHS graduate students, the PRC offers after hours appointments for students on the Marion campus to ensure they can have full and quick access to needed services. SHS graduate students do not have access to formal tutoring services, although all students are assigned faculty advisors and have ready access to course directors throughout their programs.
All Emory & Henry College students, including SHS graduate students, are required to have individual health insurance. Although SHS graduate students do not have access to the health center on the Emory campus, they do have access to acute, preventative, and general healthcare services within one mile of our Marion campus, including two local family medicine practice groups (please call the groups first to ensure they accept your health insurance) who have agreed to see our students (Family Physicians of Marion and Smyth County Family Physicians), the Smyth County Community Hospital Emergency Department and First Assist Urgent Care.
