Testing Information

*On campus Inspire PCR testing results are available in 48-72 hours*

For on-campus testing you should plan on getting tested one week (7 days) before you plan to attend class so there is plenty of time for your results.  The negative test result is valid for one week at a time.  For example, if you plan to attend class on Monday, February 14th, you should take a campus PCR test on Monday, February 7th (one week prior). If you receive a negative test result, it will be valid for the week of February 14th.   


Students may still use PCR or antigen test (including at-home tests) results from off-campus providers.  For more information on testing click here.

California has implemented Test and Treatment locations to provide testing and treatment for COVID -19. At Test to Treat locations, people will be tested for COVID-19. If someone tests positive and treatments are appropriate for them, they will receive a prescription from a health care provider.

Employees that require testing for a possible exposure, or to confirm symptoms may email the to receive information on how to receive a take home ANTIGEN test. These tests are reliable and will allow you to test at home; and receive results in 15 minutes to determine your current COVID status. Tests are available for drive thru access at the 1700 building (gym) for pick up.

If you are not vaccinated and work or take classes on campus, you must undergo testing once a week. It will be your responsibility to upload a negative test result before coming to campus.
