Sexual Assault Nurse Examination (SANE)

Under Colorado law, public colleges are required to provide the following information for students who are victims of sexual assault.

If you are a victim of a sexual assault, you may request a medical forensic exam.  This is important if you think you want to seek legal action.  It is vital that a victim obtains medical treatment as soon as possible and does not bathe, shower, douche, or change clothes until given permission by medical personnel.  You can have the exam without having to report the assault to law enforcement.  You will not be charged for the cost of the exam.

The College has an agreement with the following providers for the exam:

  • Trinidad Campus:
