Weekly testing for the U-M Community
The U-M COVID-19 Community Sampling and Tracking Program is a free, asymptomatic testing program for those on the Ann Arbor campus.
Weekly testing is open to all U-M students, faculty and staff on the Ann Arbor campus, including Michigan Medicine employees. CSTP testing meets the weekly mandatory testing requirement for undergraduate students.
SIGN UP IN 2 EASY STEPS
Registration must be completed in advance by 5pm the day before. The program is made possible with support from the School of Public Health and University Health Service.
Mandatory Testing for Undergraduates
Weekly COVID-19 testing through the university is required for Ann Arbor undergraduate students identified as the following:
- Living in Michigan Housing.
- Registered for any in-person courses that meet on campus, regardless of how frequently the course meets in-person.
- Employed in a position that requires them to come to campus.
- Conducting research in an on campus facility/building.
- Coming to campus to use facilities (e.g. libraries, unions, Rec Sports, Dining).
Testing through U-M allows for immediate information sharing with the university for timely and accurate tracking of testing completion and compliance.
Students are expected to get their first U-M COVID-19 test within 72 hours of arrival to campus or the Ann Arbor area. Undergraduates who are required to get tested should complete their first COVID-19 test at U-M before they engage in campus activities but no later than Jan. 25.
The ResponsiBLUE App provides U-M undergraduate students with their COVID-19 testing status by noting the date of their last test through U-M testing programs. Undergraduate students will either have a "COMPLETED" or "EXPIRED" status displayed on their screen at the end of the symptom check process. Download/update the App to ensure you have the latest version.
Because people can be infected with COVID and not show any symptoms, students living off campus who do not have a regular need to come to campus are also encouraged to participate in routine COVID-19 testing to help protect the health of the U-M community. Doing so also will make it easy to come on campus when students would like to or if the need arises.
The program is not a replacement for symptomatic testing or medical care. Individuals with symptoms of COVID-19 or a close contact exposure should contact Occupational Health Services (faculty and staff), or University Health Service (students).
