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. Test results must be uploaded here. 
  • Testing for individuals with waivers: Students and employees with medical or religious waivers who are not Covered Individuals will no longer be required to regularly test.
  • 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 and Vending Machines

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

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

Please note that the campus COVID Testing Program will end on May 16, 2023, and all COVID Test Centers will be closed starting May 16.
