COVID-19 test scheduling and dashboard

Dear students, faculty and staff,

We are pleased to announce that voluntary saliva-based COVID-19 testing is available to all faculty, staff and students on campus this week.

Beginning today, students, faculty and staff who are not among the weekly, mandatory testing groups must schedule voluntary saliva-based testing online before arriving at a testing site.

If you are displaying symptoms of COVID-19, you are not eligible for saliva-based testing.

What you need to know before arriving for the test

  • Testing is free to all students and staff.
  • Be aware of the symptoms of COVID-19. If you are displaying any symptoms of COVID-19 please seek care from a medical provider.
  • Bring a valid i-card to the testing site. It will need to be shown to be tested. Visitor cards are not accepted.
