HIV - AIDS Testing and Counseling

The Birkam Health Center offers confidential or anonymous HIV testing and counseling to FSU students and their dependents. HIV testing is encouraged for anyone who has had unprotected sex. Students may schedule an HIV testing appointment by telephone or by walking into the Health Center in person.  

Types of HIV Tests

Testing is done via a simple blood test. Test results usually take one to two weeks. A return appointment for results will be made.

The Health Center conducts testing of other sexually transmitted diseases too. Please refer to STD Testing. Call the Health Center at 231-591-2614 for further information.
