PrEP (HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis)
PrEP is available through the Student Health Center. PrEP requires daily pill use and quarterly STI screens with your PrEP medical provider. PrEP isn’t a stand-alone therapy: regular condom use is still needed for other HIV and STI prevention. In Washington State, access to PrEP is supported through the WA PrEP DAP program & Gilead’s co-pay card. We can help you apply for these programs. Please bring your current insurance card, photo ID, and proof of residence (out of state students can use their rental agreement or tuition bill) to your initial PrEP visit.

PEP (HIV Post-Exposure Prophylaxis)
PEP is medication you take after you think you might have been exposed to HIV. Treatment must start within 72 hours of the exposure, so timing is important. This therapy is also available at the Student Health Center.
