Express STI testing is now available at Health Services to all students.
We’ve heard your requests and have developed a quick and easy way to access STI Testing. Starting now, the Express STI Testing Clinic is available on Thursdays from 10am-12pm and 1-3pm. Schedule online at the Holy Cross Patient Portal. When you arrive for your appointment, you will complete a brief form on your phone that allows you to select your STI tests. The form provides basic information about each test to help you decide which STI tests are right for you.
Testing available at the Express STI Clinic:
You’ll then provide your samples and be able to continue on with your day. No need to provide a sexual history to a clinician, and no exam. Your test results will be sent to you via secure message within 3-5 business days if negative. If positive, you will be called by a clinician to discuss the next steps. Please note, this clinic is designed for screening tests only. If you have STI symptoms or a known exposure, please schedule a regular visit with Health Services. If you don’t feel comfortable selecting your own tests or would like advice from a clinician, you are always welcome to schedule a regular visit.
