Reopening WCSU

Testing for COVID

Is testing available on campus?

Starting Monday, Jan. 24, 2022, WCSU will offer COVID-19 antigen rapid tests. PCR testing will also be offered starting on Wednesday, Jan. 26th.

Weekly PCR testing is mandatory for all those with an approved exemption. PCR tests will be available every Tuesday (except for 1/25) and Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Westside Campus in the O’Neill Center Hall of Fame.

Antigen testing will be available to any member of our university community experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. Antigen tests will be available Monday to Friday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the Midtown Campus Student Center in Colonial Corner.

These testing services are only available to the WCSU community.  Please bring your WCSU ID to expedite the process.

Will I get the results of my test?

For tests done on campus, results will be emailed to you and automatically recorded at the Health Services office. Students who get their tests off-campus must submit the results to the WCSU Health Service Patient Portal at https://wcsu.medicatconnect.com/ by the end of the day each Friday.
