COVID-19 Testing Information for Spring 2021 Semester
Dear Radford Family:
Radford University is committed to providing regular testing opportunities for students, faculty, and staff. That commitment began when the University reopened and resumed operations and services as part of the Fall 2020 semester. That commitment will continue during the Spring 2021 semester.
For the Fall 2020 semester, the University offered a number of surveillance testing opportunities for students, faculty, and staff, in addition to entry testing for students and exit testing for students, faculty, and staff. For the Spring 2021 semester, open or walk-up testing will be available on the main campus for students, faculty, and staff throughout the week and at Radford University Carilion (RUC) for students, faculty, and staff on a weekly basis. As we begin the semester, there will not be a registration process for either location. Based on utilization, the sign-up process and/or other logistics associated with open or walk-up testing may be altered to better serve the campus community.

Together, we can and will stay healthy and safe during the Spring 2021 semester!
