The SUSHC offers allergy injections, health education, in house laboratory services, confidential HIV testing, reproductive consultation including contraception, specialty consultation referral, emergency contraception, treatment and screening for STDs, and women’s and men’s health care.

Psychological problems are given initial assessment and then referred to either the Counseling Center, a campus based agency, or hospital, if such a referral is determined necessary by the health care provider (HCP).
