STI Prevention, Testing, & Treatment
  • Annual STI (sexually transmitted infection) screening is recommended for all sexually active students.  More frequent testing is recommended if symptoms develop or if students engage in high-risk sexual behaviors.
  • Asymptomatic students who desire gonorrhea & chlamydia testing and do not have a known STI contact should wait at least 2 weeks after a sexual encounter for the most accurate test results. 
  • Students who have been notified that their partner has been diagnosed with an STI should be seen in clinic immediately for evaluation and treatment.
  • Students may choose to give a urine sample for gonorrhea & chlamydia screening.  If a urine test is preferred, do not urinate for 1-2 hours prior to your appointment.
  • Lab fees include $20 for gonorrhea & chlamydia testing, and $15 for HIV & syphilis blood tests ($35 total).
  • Student Health also offers PrEP services to students interested in learning more about, starting, or continuing PrEP.  When requesting an appointment, please let the scheduler know that the visit is for PrEP so that you are scheduled appropriately.
Well-Woman Exams & Pap Smears
  • Routine well-woman exams are charged $55, which covers the following components:
    • Pap Smears for cervical cancer screening in students 21 years and older.  Anyone with a cervix should complete their first pap smear at age 21; if results are normal, pap smears are repeated every 3 years.

    • Routine breast exam.
