HIV Testing and Counseling

Sindecuse Health Center offers confidential HIV testing. Appointments include an OraQuick Rapid HIV Test, HIV risk assessment, risk reduction counseling and referrals to additional services as appropriate. Test results will be available during your appointment.

Western Michigan University students, faculty, staff, and retirees and their dependents as well as area college students are eligible. The fee for HIV testing and counseling is $10 for all patients and insurance will not be billed for this service.

If you are interested in a rapid HIV test appointment not combined with other tests please contact the Office of Health Promotion and Education at (269) 387-3263 or call the HIV hotline at (269) 387-4HIV. You may also login to the Health Manager using your Bronco NetID and password to make an appointment.
