Testing Schedule

We are offering COVID testing (with results in 24 hours) on campus to graduating students who have RSVPd to commencement on a first-come, first-served basis. This is also available for faculty, staff, and volunteers participating at Commencement.

It is not available for guests attending your graduation. 

If you have already been vaccinated or will be vaccinated at least two weeks prior to your graduation ceremony, or you contracted COVID in the last 90 days and have fully recovered, DO NOT obtain a COVID test.  Instead, follow the instructions on the graduation website.

You will need to make an appointment for your test based on the ceremony you are attending as indicated below. The testing site is the Student Activities Center (SAC), Ballroom A.  

Attending May 19 ceremony → Schedule PCR test on campus on May 16 or May 17.

Attending May 20 ceremony → Schedule PCR test on campus on May 17 or May 18.

Attending May 21 ceremony → Schedule PCR test on campus on May 18 or May 19.

Please register for the on-campus test conducted at the Student Activities Center (SAC) using the link below: 

After your test, you will be provided a COVID PASS card to present for entry into your graduation location on the date of your ceremony, indicating you have been tested on campus. Replacement cards will not be provided. Should your results be positive, Student Health Service will reach out to you. 

Important Notes:

  • You are not required to complete your COVID test on campus.  We are providing this option for your convenience and to ensure a 24-hour hour turnaround of test results.  
  • If you elect to obtain your COVID test elsewhere, it must be EITHER a PCR test completed within 3 days prior to the ceremony OR an antigen test completed within 6 hours of your ceremony’s start time. Please visit the commencement website for additional details. 
  • Tests taken on campus at Enzo’s GLS and LDS residential test sites may not result in time and are not applicable to the graduation PCR test. COVID Pass cards will not be distributed at these sites. 
  • If you are fully vaccinated, do not schedule a test. Proof of vaccination the day of the ceremony by NY Excelsior Pass or your vaccine card are acceptable forms of documentation for entry to the event. 

For COVID-19 testing or vaccination questions, please contact Student Health Services at (631) 632-6740.
