The University Health Center laboratory performs common labs on-site as well as collecting samples for analysis by our reference lab. The UHC lab will process orders from both on-campus medical providers and medical providers not affiliated with JMU.

On-Site Labs performed include:

  • Flu (Influenza)
  • Glucose (blood sugar)
  • Mononucleosis
  • Rapid HIV
  • Rapid Strep Test
  • Urinalysis (dip stick test only)
  • Urine Pregnancy Test

Reference Lab
The JMU Health Center has a contract with a reference lab through which we can obtain essentially any lab a student may need performed. Many labs are inexpensive (ranging $5-$25) but others can be more costly. Students can either pay out-of-pocket or may arrange to have the reference lab bill their services through insurance. If a student plans to have the reference lab bill insurance, they will need to bring their insurance card to the appointment so a copy can be sent with the lab specimens.

Labs not requiring a physician's order
There are several labs that a patient may request without a lab order from a medical provider. These labs include:

  • Blood type (ABO/Rh)
  • Chickenpox (Varicella) titer
  • Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C surface antibody titer
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) titer
  • Sickle Cell screen

Appointments can be made on-line through MyJMUHealth or by calling 568-6178.

Lab orders from a medical provider/physician not affiliated with JMU

  • Outside lab orders must be dropped off at the JMU Health Center, uploaded to MyJMUHealth or faxed to Health Information (540-568-6176) for approval prior to scheduling an appointment.
  • Once the requested tests have been approved, students will be notified via a secure email message through MyJMUHealth to schedule an appointment with the lab.
  • If the requested tests cannot be processed by our lab or if using an outside lab may be a better financial choice, the student will be called by Health Center staff to discuss options.
