How to schedule a COVID-19 Test

In order to keep campus open safely, it is imperative we all follow of the guidelines and protocols and check your symptoms each day.  Visit the Student Testing Information Page to learn more.




Get tested for COVID-19 and check your symptoms.

Get tested


  1. If you are sick with COVID-19, or are a close contact, avoid travel until you complete quarantine or isolation at your college residence or other approved facility.
  2. If you have had close contact with someone with COVID-19, it can take up to 14 days to develop symptoms or get a positive test result. Be sure to complete the full 14-day quarantine period, even if you do not have symptoms or if you test negative during this period.
  3. Before traveling away from your college residence for holiday and winter breaks, you should consider:
    • Monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19. If you develop symptoms, do not travel away from your college residence or gather with friends or family. Get tested and self-quarantine until you receive your results.
    • You risk bringing infection to your family or a new community. Stay up-to-date on the status of COVID-19 disease activity in areas where you plan to travel.
    • If diagnosed with COVID-19 while traveling, or within 2 days after returning from travel, household members and other close contacts will be required to quarantine.
    • Individuals diagnosed with COVID-19 and their close contacts are prohibited from using public transportation (e.g., airplane, bus) during their isolation and quarantine periods.
  4. Those of you who must travel away from your college residence for holiday or winter break, should prepare for
    • Changing travel restrictions.
    • A possible requirement to get tested before traveling.
      • It can take up to 5 days to get test results. Ensure you will have your results before your flight and have a plan in the event your COVID-19 test result is positive and your travel is delayed.
    • Staying in-place if you get sick or exposed, which could mean isolating or quarantining at your travel destination, thereby postponing your return.
    • Planning for the impact of being away from your college residence for an extended period of time if you are required to isolate or quarantine in-place, or if your college’s COVID-19 response policies change prior to your return to campus.
      • Take home essential personal and educational items.
      • Refill or transfer prescriptions for medications and vision.
      • Have access to your previous COVID-19 test results and related medical records.
    • Some cities and counties may require you stay at home, or self-quarantine for 14 days after your travel.
  5. It is important that you engage in COVID-19 preventative practices while on holiday or winter break, whether you have to travel away from your college residence or are able to stay in your current residence. Limit the spread of COVID-19 through frequent hand washing, wearing a mask, limiting trips out to only the essentials, practicing proper cough and sneeze etiquette, and maintaining a physical distance of least 6 feet when interacting with others.
    • Avoid activities such as:
      • Gatherings with people from outside your household.
      • Bars, especially indoor spaces.
      • Indoor dining at restaurants.
      • Crowded parades or race events.
      • Shopping in crowded stores.
    • When testing capacity is limited, community testing sites prioritize the testing of close contacts and people who have symptoms of COVID-19. Be aware that testing for travel purposes may not be accessible when testing capacity is limited.
    • See tips for celebrating safely with family and friends during holiday and winter breaks on the DHS COVID-19: Staying Safe in Your Community page.
  6. Make safe decisions by using the DHS COVID-19 Decision Tool for Individuals and Families. This tool can help you think through how your decisions might impact others, what you can do to reduce risk, and if there are other, safer activities to do instead.
