See below for details.
Most people think they would know if they had a sexually transmitted infection. Wrong! The truth is, most STIs have no signs or symptoms. Or they have mild signs that can be easily overlooked. The only way to know if you have a STI is to get tested. Learn more about sexually transmitted infections
If you are sexually active, it is recommended to get tested annually for common STIs. Annual HIV tests are also recommended. View STI and HIV screening recommendations
If you’ve had unprotected sex, have a new partner (or more than one partner), or for any reason are worried you have been exposed to an STI, get tested right away.
Steps for Getting Tested at the University Health Center
- Call the University Health Center at (402) 472-5000 to talk to a nurse about STI testing.
- Make an appointment to get tested.
- When you arrive at the University Health Center, check in at the Front Desk. You will then proceed to the Laboratory on the 3rd floor of the University Health Center.
- Your test results will be sent to the University Health Center up to 3 days after testing. A University Health Center nurse will call you to discuss your results.
Billing Information: If you use insurance to help pay for STI testing, the primary insurance holder will receive information about what STI tests you received. If you pay for your STI tests by cash, check, Visa or Mastercard, you - and only you - will know what STI tests you received.
