COVID-19 Testing Information for Students

Note: This page contains information related to COVID-19 testing only. For information about the COVID-19 vaccine, please visit Michigan Tech's COVID-19 Vaccine Information webpage.

Update: Our spring 2021 COVID-19 testing program ended April 30, 2021. During summer 2021, there will be no on-campus testing. If you experience COVID-19 symptoms or are a close contact of someone who has tested positive, please reach out to a local health care provider to schedule a test. You do not need to have a preexisting relationship with the health care provider in order to get tested.

Testing Requirements for International Travel

If you must travel internationally or are considering whether to do so, please review the country-specific COVID-19 information available on the US Department of State website.

If you are traveling to a country that requires proof of a negative COVID-19 test, plan ahead. Daily testing capacity is limited and in demand. Scheduling a test as far in advance as possible will help ensure you can get tested within a timeframe that complies with your country's requirements. To schedule a test, call UGL at 906-483-1860. Tell the staff person scheduling the test that you need the test result for international travel. 

PLEASE NOTE: Test results are typically available within 48–72 hours (not including the weekend), but it may take longer to receive your results. Test results cannot be expedited due to international travel requirements. Testing priority is determined by the presence of symptoms, the presence of underlying health conditions, whether the person getting tested is a health care worker, or whether the person getting tested resides in a congregate living situation.

When you arrive for your scheduled COVID-19 test, remind UGL staff you are getting tested for international travel and ask for a visit summary. The visit summary includes your name, demographic information, test ordered, and the date it was performed, as well as the location of the test and clinic contact information.
