How to Schedule a COVID-19 Test

The information on this page will assist you in scheduling a test for COVID-19 on the Oshkosh campus. 

UW Oshkosh Testing Site at Albee Hall

COVID-19 tests at Albee Hall are available for Oshkosh campus students, faculty and staff. Resident Oshkosh campus students will continue to take a weekly test at Albee Hall.

Community Surge Testing at Culver Family Welcome Center

COVID-19 tests at the Culver Center are available for anyone who cannot get tested at Albee Hall. Individuals do not have to be exposed to COVID-19 or experiencing symptoms to get a test, nor do they need to live in Oshkosh.

Access Campuses

Fond du Lac campus students can schedule a test by calling 1-844-225-0147 via the Fond du Lac County Health Department.
Fox Cities campus students should download the free MyPrevea app to schedule a testing appointment.

Today we have a few updates on testing, spring semester and vaccinations to share with you. Our response to COVID-19 has moved at a rapid pace and that often means we need to make adjustments based on new or changing information.

Students: It’s finals week and spring semester may be the furthest thing from your mind, but we want to share with you now some of the positive changes we have in store for the rest of the 2020-21 academic year.


Health Self-Assessment

You can use the COVID-19 Health Self-Assessment to help decide whether or not it is safe to come to a UWO campus in person. Learn more on the Self-Assessment FAQ.

Reporting Positive Cases

If you receive a positive test result for COVID-19, it is vital that you report it as soon as possible through the Positive Case Reporting Form.

After your test

If you receive a positive COVID-19 test result, self-isolation is required. Do not go to work, school or public areas. Learn more about your next steps via the buttons below.

A negative test result does not mean you do not have COVID-19. The incubation period for the virus can be up to 14 days, so if you have already been instructed to self-quarantine and monitor symptoms, you should continue your self-quarantine for as long as originally instructed regardless of whether you receive a negative test result.

UW Oshkosh and UW System have invested a great deal of time, energy and resources and set up partnerships with healthcare organizations and public health to manage testing and contact tracing. We have created COVID-19 tester and contact tracer positions on our Oshkosh campus. We have set up a testing site in Albee Hall and we will be conducting cohort testing to provide a steady stream of testing samples to monitor the virus on our campuses.

We have a solid plan, but our plan will only work if we all do our part. That means wearing a mask, maintaining physical distancing, washing your hands. If we want to keep our campuses open, we must be diligent, we must be consistent, we must have compassion and care for ourselves and others. Large gatherings, house parties and other behavior typical around college campuses will create conditions that require us to quickly alter our plans.
