Required COVID-19 testing – regardless of vaccination status

UTA announced Friday that it is implementing new health and safety measures to help reduce the spread of COVID‑19 in our community. Read the full message here.

Regardless of vaccination status, all students, faculty and staff coming to campus in any capacity for the fall 2021 semester must provide a viral test (antigen test or nucleic acid amplification test such as a PCR) by Sept. 8, 2021.

UTA has a number of on-campus testing options that meet the required criteria and are free. In addition, the results from our on-campus options will be automatically reported to UTA with no further action required on your part. Results from off-campus testing sites will be accepted, though you will not be reimbursed for costs.

You will be able to upload and submit your COVID‑19 test results from off-campus testing sites to a digital portal that will be made available to campus in the coming days. Please continue to monitor your UTA email and the UTA COVID‑19 Information website for updates. Students already living or otherwise present on campus may submit their results as soon as the portal becomes available, but no later than Sept. 8. Negative results from tests conducted more than 72 hours before the portal is made available will not be accepted.
