On-Campus COVID-19 Testing

The University will continue to offer no-cost COVID-19 testing to students, faculty, and staff. Information on testing is available on the campus FAQs. Students, faculty, and staff that test positive for COVID-19 are required to fill out the COVID-19 Reporting form.

In addition to on-campus COVID-19 testing, the covid.gov website features a function called Test-to-Treat where individuals can enter their zip code and find providers who will test and then also prescribe medication to treat COVID in the event of a positive test.
