Lab Testing
There is a charge for all lab services including: pregnancy testing, throat cultures, and other lab services that are sent out for testing. Charges will appear on your student account after services have been rendered. If desired, you may bill your health insurance for laboratory testing and pay according to your health insurance plan. Lab results are usually available in 24-48 hours.
