Our Services Include:
Illness & Injury Treatment
From coughs and colds, to asthma and acne, we offer a variety of services related to illness and injury, most of which can be treated within our facility. If you do require a referral for a specialist to be evaluated or treated, we will work with you to find a referral that works with your health insurance coverage. Students are financially responsible for any medical care outside of our facility.
Sexual health services include sexually transmitted infections (STI) testing and treatment, birth control consultation and prescription, pregnancy testing, emergency contraception and more.
Many students qualify for the Family PACT program, which provides no-cost birth control services along with STI testing and treatment. To learn more about this program, click here. Students who do not qualify for Family PACT can still be seen for these services, but charges may apply for certain lab tests or prescriptions.
Fresno State students express a spectrum of sexual and gender identities. Our staff strives to be sensitive to and address the sexuality and gender concerns that our students bring.
