Covid-19 Updates

The latest from UNC Greensboro

UNCG provides Student COVID-19 testing on campus in three different ways:

  • If you are taking at least one in-person class and have not submitted proof of complete vaccination and do not have COVID-19 symptoms, you are required to participate in the mandatory testing program:
    • The University provides on-campus testing on Mondays and Wednesdays by Mako. Or, you may choose to receive a PCR test in the community and submit your results here. Students will receive direct communication indicating which testing group they are in. The group testing schedule is on this page.  
    • Students who have received one shot of a two dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna) will need to continue to participate in the mandatory testing program until they have submitted completed COVID-19 vaccination records and two weeks have passed since their second dose.
  • If you do not have COVID-19 symptoms and are not required to participate in mandatory testing:

Remember, if you receive a positive test result after being tested off campus, you will need to complete the Self-Reporting Form. This is crucial to our contact tracing efforts.
