COVID-19 Testing

Students, faculty and staff have a variety of diagnostic testing options, including on-campus testing at the Center for Health and Well-Being, SAFE saliva-based testing  and off-campus testing opportunities through community providers.

Reporting Your COVID-19 Test Result

If you were tested at a non-university location, please upload your test result to MyHealthSpace. Login using your UofSC username and password and then on the next screen your date of birth. Click on Medical Clearances and then locate COVID Return Test  and click the Green Update button. Attach a copy of your results under COVID-19 Test Results Upload and complete the date and the result in the appropriate category (Antibody test, PCR test, or Rapid Antigen test). Click Done.

If you do not have the Upload Test Result option, please follow the directions below:

  1. In the left navigation, go to “Messages”
  2. Click on the “New Message” box
  3. You will see a list of options, including one that says, “I want to upload COVID-19 Test Results”
  4. Select that item and it will generate a message box and an “Add Attachment” button for you to upload your report

If you will not be returning to the Columbia campus, despite a face-to-face or hybrid label on one or more of your classes, you can request a testing exemption for the spring 2021 semester. Login to MyHealthSpace using your UofSC username and password and then on the next screen your date of birth. Click on Downloadable Forms and scroll down to the UofSC COVID Testing Exemption Request. Complete and re-upload this form to request your testing exemption.


Diagnostic Testing

We are offering student, faculty and staff initial COVID-19 diagnostic testing by appointment. Additional testing is only recommended if a person is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 or has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. Please call the Coronavirus Phone Bank at 803-576-8511 to report any technical issues or concerns regarding uploading test results to MyHealthSpace.
