Appointments, Access, and Online Scheduling

COVID-19 Testing Information

Students who are concerned about symptoms should call Student Health Services at 828-262-3100 and ask to speak with a nurse.

Student Health Service offers COVID-19 tests for students on weekdays:

  • Molecular tests processed by an off-site lab (turnaround time varies, but is around 1 week).
  • Rapid antigen testing per current N.C. Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) recommendations with same-day results; however, antigen testing is not quite as accurate as molecular testing.

Student Health Service also uses an outdoor tent, located outside of the Miles Annas Building, for greater efficiency, speed and safety in offering COVID-related services.

Appointments are required; call 828-262-3100 before going to Student Health Service. Students who are ill are not turned away for testing elsewhere; they are first screened by a nurse via telephone. If it is determined a test is needed, the student will receive a same-day rapid antigen test, with molecular (PCR) testing as a backup, per clinicians judgment in the event of a negative rapid test.

While you await your appointment, behave as if you are positive — quarantine if possible and always observe the 3W’s (Wear, Wait, Wash).

Flu shots available

A flu clinic will be offered Monday, Nov. 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:10 p.m. Register through Medportal to schedule a time. You can also schedule a flu shot after Thanksgiving Nov. 30 – Dec. 4 and again Dec. 7-11 during regular clinic hours. Call 262-3100 to schedule an appointment.
