Laboratory Services

Lab Orders

Our laboratory is a moderate complexity physician office lab (POL). As a POL, the Student Health Center (SHC) laboratory may only obtain and perform tests requested by a SHC Provider on established SHC patients.

By state code, orders for lab tests from a provider external to the SHC cannot be honored at the SHC laboratory. However, there are local regional, laboratory draw centers close to campus where those orders may be taken and can be honored.

Most labs ordered by our providers may be performed on-site. However, for labs ordered by a SHC provider not performed on-site, test samples can still be obtained and then forwarded for completion at an off-site central lab facility.

You may see a list of our more commonly ordered tests below. COVID-19 testing is also available through our lab.

Lab Charges

There is a nominal fee assessed for all laboratory services. Certain exams and evaluations have more commonly performed labs.  Examples of commonly ordered labs and their prices may be viewed here.

Your tests and charges will be individualized for you during your evaluation. Your Provider will discuss them with you prior to ordering. Private health insurance is not billed by the SHC, however, an itemized statement can be provided to you and used to request reimbursement from your private health insurance carrier.

Lab Results

Patients will be notified of their lab results by the ordering SHC healthcare provider by phone or through a Secure Message through the Patient Portal.
