If JMU is closed or delayed, the UHC will be on the university's schedule. If you have an appointment during the time we're closed, please reschedule using MyJMUChart or by calling 540-568-6178 option 2. 

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:

  • COVID-19 - rapid antigen and rapid PCR
  • Flu (Influenza) - antigen and PCR tests are available
  • Glucose (blood sugar)
  • Mononucleosis
  • Strep Test - antigen and PCR tests are available
  • 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
  • COVID-19 Antibody test

Appointments can be made on-line through MyJMUChart 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 MyJMUChart 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 MyJMUChart 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.
