University of Missouri students are able to get tested for COVID-19 through early testing available through Friday.

Arrival testing is required for students living on campus and is being highly recommended for those living off campus.

Students have three options to fulfill the requirement:

  • Test at home prior to arrival.
  • Test on campus through early testing or testing at the Hearnes Center.
  • Submit documentation of a positive COVID-19 test between Oct. 15 and Jan. 9.

Early testing started Jan. 11 and is available through Jan. 15 in parking garage 7. The testing is open from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Those looking to get tested early can call (573) 884-0948 during those hours to make an appointment.

Testing will also be available at the Hearnes Center Jan. 17 through Jan. 21.

The shuttle schedule for the tests will run in 20-minute intervals from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. Sunday and Monday, then from 5 a.m. until 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.

Students can sign up for the Hearnes Center event through a portal by entering their MU username and password.
