Need to report a covid-19 positive test or exposure? Click here


Auburn is implementing a testing program based on recommendations from federal, state and local public health officials. Testing is a crucial component of the A Healthier U plan. The university will continuously refine, improve and expand its testing efforts because they are a critical component of a safe and healthy return to on-campus operations.

Symptomatic Testing

Testing for symptomatic or exposed individuals will be offered through the Auburn University Medical Clinic. The Clinic offers multiple testing options and is well equipped to provide testing services to the campus community.

Individuals who are experiencing symptoms consistent with Covid-19 or have had known exposure to someone who has tested positive for the disease should immediately begin the process of self-quarantine and call the Clinic’s Covid-19 line, 334-844-9825, to answer a series of questions and set up an appointment. Ideally, testing should be conducted no sooner than five days after exposure or if symptoms are present.

Students and employees are required to self-report positive Covid-19 test results, regardless of where they choose to be tested using the confidential Self-Report Form. Students who test positive and do not complete the Self-Report Form may be referred to Student Conduct for potential disciplinary action. Employees who test positive and do not complete the Self-Report Form may be referred to Human Resources.

The guidance and directives on this page reflect changes to university operations as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and at the university’s discretion will supersede any conflicting policies. This guidance is subject to change as the situation requires. Compliance with these terms – and any further updates published at – is required of all Auburn University faculty, staff, students, contractors and visitors. Failure to comply will result in disciplinary action and/or removal from campus. The campus community may report violations of public health directives.
