Tartan Testing

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 or facial covering requirement
  • Faculty/staff who have not uploaded their vaccination information to the university’s Vaccine Database or who have been exempted from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement

In addition, the CDC recommends travelers get tested both before and after travel.

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.
