GYT Screening

“Get Yourself Tested” or GYT is a free and easy screening for three sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV, gonorrhea, and chlamydia. GYT is not for people who think they have an STI but instead for students looking to make STI testing part of their annual wellness routines.

  • This service is offered during the academic year.
  • GYT screenings are for those who have no symptoms and no recent exposure to an STI.
  • GYT services are confidential and are not recorded for insurance claims.
  • GYT services are provided by the Uptown Health Center Nursing Department.

While the GYT screening itself is a free service, if the patient needs follow-up testing or appointments, these additional services will be subject to Campus Health's standard insurance billing practices.

Appointment Scheduling

To make an appointment for a GYT screening call 504-865-5255 or schedule via the Patient Portal.

How do I get my screening results?

You will be notified of your results within three to seven days, depending on the test. We generally communicate results via the Patient Portal.

GYT Screening vs. STI Testing

  • If you would like to be tested for additional STIs
