Scheduling Rapid and PCR COVID-19 Testing at Student Health Services
Student Health Services can arrange COVID-19 testing for students who meet screening criteria. Call to make an appointment.
While awaiting a test or test results, please stay isolated at home and do not go to class, work, or public places!
The cost of rapid COVID-19 testing at Student Health Services depends on if the student is insured or uninsured. Typically, insurance will cover the cost of the COVID-19 test if the test is ordered by a Student Health Services provider. Uninsured patients can expect to pay a $40 fee to be tested.
PCR COVID-19 testing appointments are available upon request. Results are available same day. Self-pay cost is $45 for students who have already paid their Student Health and Wellness Fee. For insured patients, Student Health will bill insurance for PCR COVID testing.
