STI Testing

Student Health Services offers several options for STI testing:

  • Self-directed testing
  • Same day/ Urgent Care appointment
  • General Appointments

Self-directed STI Testing

If you are not experiencing any STI symptoms or have not had a known exposure to someone with an STI, you have the option of Self-directed STI testing at the lab here at SHS. An appointment with the lab is necessary and can be made by calling (858) 534-3300. Testing is limited to:

  • Gonorrhea
  • Chlamydia
  • HIV 
  • Syphilis

For concerns about oral or anal exposure, you will need to make an appointment to see one of the providers to discuss testing options. Appointments can be made by calling any of the groups. 

Self-directed STI testing is limited to once every 3 months.

Same Day Appointment or Urgent Care

If the patient has symptoms, we recommend they be tested through Urgent Care or a same day appointment. For same day appointments, patients should call (858) 534-3300 and ask for a same day appointment.

When you have symptoms, making a same day appointment or going to Urgent Care is important as specimens from affected sites may be needed.

General Appointments

Patients may also schedule an appointment with their health care provider to be screened for STIs.


Test results will be available in 3-5 days. A message about the results will be sent through MyStudentChart. All students must register and activate MyStudentChart in order to receive a message about your results.

Lab staff cannot provide results.

If you wish to obtain a copy of your result, please submit a Medical Record Request through MyStudentChart.

Student Health Services is required by law to report any diagnosis of Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea or HIV to the Communicable Disease Office of the County Public Health Department.
