Test Orders


Tests can be ordered from our Student Health providers or your outside licensed providers.  We prefer you have outside orders delivered to us before you come in for testing so we can enter your orders and review them for accuracy.

As part of your health care delivery team, it is our goal to provide quality laboratory services for all students.

If you are instructed to fast before your test, please be advised to follow the instructions below:

  • Do not eat for 12 hours -this includes food, juice, coffee or tea.  Blood sugar (glucose) testing requires only an 8 hour fast.

  • Only water is allowed when fasting

We are required by law to report the diagnoses of Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV to the Communicable Disease Office of the County Public Health Department
