Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
Wear a Facial Covering
Wash Your Hands
Tartan Testing is Carnegie Mellon's testing program for the diagnosis of COVID-19 in asymptomatic individuals and is an important element of the university's ongoing strategy to detect and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
Who Must Participate Weekly in Tartan Testing
- Students who are in progress with becoming fully vaccinated or those students who have been exempted from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement
- Faculty/staff who have not uploaded their vaccination information to the university’s Vaccine Database
The test takes less than 15 minutes and same-day appointments are often available. Tartan Testing is also available for fully vaccinated CMU community members who desire a weekly test.
Fall 2021: Student Vaccine Requirements
Consistent with scientific evidence on the importance of vaccine adoption to control spread of the virus, to the extent permissible by law, Carnegie Mellon University will require all enrolled students to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, effective this fall semester.
Those who are not fully vaccinated (two weeks after the final vaccine dose) with a WHO-emergency use listed or U.S.-emergency use authorized vaccine will be required to start the vaccination process as they begin engaging in campus life (e.g. orientation programs, moving into residence halls, coming to class, joining research activities, etc.).
While awaiting full vaccination status, students will be expected to participate in mitigation activities such as weekly Tartan Testing, wearing facial coverings and participating in the Daily Self-Assessment.
Read the vaccination and/or revaccination guidelines for both domestic and international students.
Tartan Testing Shuttle
As part of Tartan Testing, CMU provides free shuttle service to the Pittsburgh campus testing location from various off-campus locations. Facial coverings for all individuals (both those fully vaccinated and not vaccinated) are still required when traveling on public transportation, including CMU shuttles.
