Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get tested on campus? 

Free testing is offered at SCC’s Fairfield campus, Monday-Friday, in front of the Gym, Building 1700.

How long does it take to get results?

On campus testing can take up to 48 hours for results, which is similar with most off-campus testing services. 

Where do I upload my results? 

You can upload your results here. 

What happens if my result is positive?

A COVID caseworker will receive notice of a positive test and you will be contacted by email and asked to respond to the caseworker immediately. You may not enter any campus facility if you have a positive COVID test.  The COVID caseworker will ask questions and determine when you can come to campus. If you are told to leave the campus due to symptoms, a positive result, or for any other reason, you must do so.

Does this apply to any SCC center or facility?

Yes, these rules apply to any classroom, center, building, facility, etc., affiliated with SCC including clinical and internship sites.

How will my instructor know if I am “cleared” to be on campus?

The COVID caseworker will advise your instructor that you are not allowed on campus and when you may return to campus. Instructors will make every effort to provide you the opportunity to complete the work or make up assignments if your absence(s) is related to COVID.

What if my classes are online, but I need to come to campus for student services?

The majority of student services are provided via zoom, email, or phone to limit traffic on campus. Access to specific in-person services is by appointment only and is subject to the same vaccination or testing requirements. Please plan ahead for any in-person appointments.

Does this apply to the spring 2022 semester?

The vaccine or test mandate will likely extend into the spring 2022 semester as will the requirement to wear masks inside campus buildings. As conditions change, we will notify students.
