Health and Wellness Clinic Testing
COVID-19 saliva PCR tests are available on campus for faculty, staff, and students. These tests are currently administered in the Health and Wellness Clinic.
When you arrive for your test:
- Wear your mask until you begin the test.
- Bring your smartphone and health insurance card with you to register for the test.
- Do not eat or drink anything for 30 minutes prior to testing.
- Results will be sent directly to you via email once they have been processed.
Other Locations for Testing
Most clinics and hospitals across the state have the ability to collect samples (specimens) for lab testing. See Find Testing Locations for a map of Minnesota's ongoing testing locations.
Call ahead before going to the clinic or hospital to be tested. Not all clinics test people who do not have symptoms.
MDH works in partnership with communities to provide safe and free on-site COVID-19 testing in areas with outbreaks, increasing cases, or other barriers to access existing test sites. See COVID-19 Community Testing for locations and dates for new community testing sites.
At this time, obtaining the COVID-19 vaccine should take precedence over any other vaccine. However, if you need other immunizations, or tuberculosis testing before, during, or after the COVID-19 vaccine, please note the special schedule to do so:
- Any vaccine should be given no sooner than 14 days before, or 14 days after you have received your full COVID-19 vaccine series.
- Any tuberculosis screening should be completed in its entirety prior to starting the COVID-19 vaccine series. If you have already started the COVID-19 series, you will need to defer TB testing until four weeks after you have completed the full COVID-19 vaccine series.

All patients need to schedule an appointment to be seen. Please have your health insurance information available when scheduling your appointment. Patients can schedule an appointment online via the patient portal, or by calling the clinic at 651-690-6714.
To Do Prior to Appointment
Patients will need to complete all pending paperwork (access these via patient portal). It is the responsibility of the patient to determine if their health insurance will cover their visit at the Health and Wellness Clinic prior to their appointment. All charges that are not covered (patient responsibility) will be billed to their student account.
The clinic doors will remain locked at all times. When arriving at the clinic for your appointment, please use the intercom system to contact the front desk. If the intercom system is not available, please call the clinic and a staff member will let you into the clinic. Please arrive at your scheduled appointment time to complete the check in process.
If you are unable to keep an appointment, we ask that you cancel it as soon as possible. You can cancel appointments through the patient portal, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or you can call the clinic directly to cancel.
