Laboratory

Some routine diagnostic laboratory tests can be performed at Health Services for a discounted fee. Other ordered tests may be obtained on site and sent to an outside lab with results in 24 to 48 hours.


Sexual Health Counseling & STI Testing

Students can speak with a healthcare professional about issues related to sexual health, contraception, sexually transmitted infections, and undergo confidential testing in a safe, non-judgmental environment.
Confidential test results, and your conversation with your provider, will become part of your medical record and will remain on file only within Health Services.
