Rutgers University COVID-19 Testing Strategy

Testing Requirements:

  • Testing for Covered Individuals with waivers: Covered Individuals with medical or religious waivers must test once weekly with self-administered rapid (antigen) tests instead of twice weekly PCR testing, as of October 1, 2022. Test results must be uploaded here. 
  • Testing for individuals with waivers: Students and employees with medical or religious waivers who are not Covered Individuals must continue to test once per week, but now through self-administered rapid (antigen) tests instead of PCR testing as of October 1, 2022, and must upload their results here.
  • Individuals who have uploaded their vaccination record(s) to the Rutgers Vaccination Portal (NetID required) are exempt from the testing requirements

COVID-19 Test Kits

In fall 2022, Rutgers will transition to self-administered rapid (antigen) tests, which will be available through the established test kit vending machines. Test centers will also have test kits, although center coverage and hours may be limited.

Individuals with waivers must upload test results by way of an attestation; results must be uploaded here.

All students, irrespective of waiver status, may avail themselves of up to two tests per week and upload their results here.
