Sexually Transmitted Infections
Many students seek out routine Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) screening, even when they are not having symptoms, just to be sure they don't have an STI. This is especially important, since many infections do not cause symptoms, especially in women. The Comprehensive Student Health Insurance will cover screening for gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV once per plan year.
Free testing for HIV, Chlamydia, and Gonorrhea is available through the Student Life Student Wellness Center.
Testing is also available via Order-It-Yourself (OIY). The fees associated with OIY tests are not billed to insurance and are the responsibility of the patient.
If you are sexually active and experiencing symptoms (unusual discharge, sores, bumps, blisters, bleeding between periods or after sex, burning and pain with urination, pelvic pain) schedule an appointment for evaluation and treatment.
