This is for our students who request testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Talk with your provider about which tests are right for you. Most testing can be done with just a urine sample, so be sure not to go to the bathroom at least two hours before your appointment time. Students may also get HIV testing done during this appointment. Bring your insurance card to your appointment. Talk to your provider if you have any concerns regarding laboratory testing and privacy.

HIV Testing and PrEP for HIV Prevention
We offer confidential HIV testing for all students.
HIV is transmitted through the exchange of blood and body fluids. It is recommended that high-risk individuals get tested at least once a year. High-risk individuals are those who have multiple sex partners, have unprotected sex and/or use intravenous drugs.
Pre-exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) is the latest addition to effective HIV prevention strategies offered at Student Health Services. PrEP is a one pill combination of two antiviral medications which is taken once daily. PrEP should be considered for any individual engaging in high risk behaviors for HIV. Students can discuss, with any of our providers, about whether they would benefit from PrEP. We also work with the PrEP counselors at Trinitas HIV Early Intervention program for those students who need financial assistance with PrEP.

Students who need medical clearance for an academic program or work , such as program requirements, internship, study abroad, Kean childcare center, volunteer work or the like, may request a physical from Student Health Services. Most programs will have a form that the provider will need to fill out and sign, so please bring that with you to the appointment. Fill out any sections that pertain to you and sign if required. If immunizations are necessary for the physical, please bring a copy of your most recent immunization record. You may be referred to a local clinic to receive required immunizations if they are not up-to-date.
Students can also request tuberculosis testing, also called a PPD or Mantoux test or QuantiFERON Gold.
