COVID-19 Testing

You have two ways to schedule a COVID-19 test:

Appointments must be scheduled in advance. We cannot accept drop-ins. 

Symptomatic Testing

If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 or have been exposed to COVID-19 call the student Health Center at (209)-228-2273.  A telehealth visit with a provider will be scheduled and testing options will be provided.  If you are experiencing a life-threatening emergency, call 911.

Asymptomatic Testing Program

If you have been instructed by housing or received an email from the COVID Responsce Center to be tested, you will need to schedule online in your myHealth portal.  This testing is only for students who do not have symptoms or known exposure to COVID-19. 

Schedule an appointment on your myHealth portal. Go to Appointments  > Schedule an Appointment. Once you book an appointment you’ll see your scheduled appointment in the Appointments section.

Walk up testing is available Monday through Thursday from 8:30AM to 12:00PM.

You’ll receive a confirmation via text message 1 day before your appointment.

You can also call the Student Health Center at (209)-228-2273 if you are having trouble booking your appointment online . 

Testing

Come to the Health and Athletics Center building near the swimming pool at your appointment time. Wear your mask, and bring your student ID and your phone with your appointment barcode ready. 

Student Health is currently using a "self-collected" test from the nose. You will collect the sample on your own.  This test is more comfortable than the sample that is taken from the back of the nose.  Please watch this short video from UCLA on nasal sample collection 

Results

Results will be sent to you via a secure message in 2-3 days.

Eligibility

All registered students are eligible. 

Costs

No fee.

Location

Walk up testing:  Back of the Health and Athletics Center building, the entrance is near the swimming pool.

To protect our staff and the UCM community, please call the Student Health Center at (209)-228-2273 before entering the building.
