Due to the current health advisory, Student Health Services is open for essential services only, such as acute illnesses.
Limited laboratory services are available for acute illnesses only.
Our laboratory is equipped to perform many basic laboratory tests. Routine in-house tests are free for students. If a sample is sent to an off-campus laboratory, the student is charged a reduced rate. Lab tests not performed in house are sent out to an outside laboratory at a reduced rate charged to our students.
Examples of some free lab tests include:
- Pregnancy tests
- Strep throat cultures
- Complete blood count
- Mononucleosis test
Procedure for Lab Tests
A clinician or nurse must order the lab test. If a payment is required, then the student will go to the cashier to pay for the test(s). We accept debit/credit cards and cash. After paying, the student will go to the lab and provide the receipt at the window. The lab technician will provide directions for sample collection and/or a phlebotomist may collect a blood sample. Blood samples are only collected up until 4:00 p.m.
The turnaround time for results can vary based on the type of lab test. Results will be provided as soon as they are available.
