College Health Services offers low-cost and confidential STI testing to current Penn College students and employees.
Who Should Get Tested?
Regardless of your age, sexual preference, or number of partners, STI testing may help you deal instantly with a disease that could have severe long-term effects on your health.
If you ever had unprotected sex, oral sex, or even intimate sexual contact in the past, there is a risk that you may have a sexually transmitted infection.
With the cautious atmosphere fostered by AIDS now faded, and modern sexual habits including more partners, higher levels of concurrent relationships, and people starting to have sex at a younger age, sexually transmitted infections have sky-rocketed.
STI Testing Schedule
STI Testing is available in College Health Services daily Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. for a $15 fee. Occasionally free testing will be made available to all students by a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and conducted by AIDS Resource.
All students will be contacted with their STI results. Results will be available approximately 2-3 days after the testing date.
Knowing your HIV status is an important part of being sexually responsible. Anyone (regardless of age, gender, race,and sexual orientation) who has ever had unprotected sex, or used/shared needles for injecting drugs has put themselves at risk for HIV and all Sexually Transmitted Infections.
AIDS Resource Alliance now offers free confidential testing for HIV through College Health Services using the Orasure Oral Swab system making the test needle and pain free! Testing is done independently and anonymously by a staff member from AIDS Resource. Dates and times are posted to this website each semester.
Contact College Health Services to schedule a testing appointment.
It takes approximately 2 weeks for AIDS Resource to receive HIV test results. You will have to return to the College Health Services office to get your test results; results cannot be given out over the phone.
