COVID Testing Options

VCU offers free COVID PCR testing to students at convenient on-campus locations.

  1. What if I have symptoms concerning for COVID?  Even if you think it's just a cold or allergies, your symptoms could still be due to COVID!  Please self-isolate and contact Student Health at 804-828-8828 to be referred for free testing.
  2. What if I have been exposed to someone diagnosed with COVID?  Please contact Student Health at 804-828-8828 for free testing and additional guidance.
  3. What if I don't have any symptoms but would like testing?  As of July 1, appointments for free at-will COVID testing will no longer be offered on campus.  Students can acquire free rapid antigen test kits at COVID-19 supply vending machines on campus.  Click on the link above for details.
Covid Vaccines

COVID vaccination is no longer required for students, except for those who are currently or periodically in hospital, clinical, or other healthcare settings.  Students in these settings should follow the requirements of their placement or work site.

Student Health strongly encourages students to be vaccinated and boosted against COVID.  Unvaccinated individuals are significantly more likely to become infected and/or hospitalized due to COVID.

  • Students can schedule free COVID vaccine appointments at both campus clinics through the Web Portal.
  • To search for vaccine availability off-campus, visit www.vaccines.gov.  Examples of local pharmacies offering vaccine include Kroger, CVS, Rite Aid and Walgreens.
  • Student Health shares records of student compliance with COVID vaccination requirements, including records of vaccination or of medical or religious exemptions, with university administration for the purpose of managing health and safety protocols.  Any record of the provision of health services, however, remains confidential in a student's health record at Student Health, consistent with applicable laws and regulations.

Student Health FAQs

University Student Health Services is a nationally accredited health care provider that offers primary care services to VCU students. Two clinics are located on the Monroe Park & MCV campuses. APPOINTMENTS ARE REQUIRED & must be scheduled BY PHONE.

Who is eligible to use Student Health? Students who have paid the semester health fee may be seen at Student Health. No health fee is required to use the Student Health Pharmacy or Immunization Services.

What does the health fee cover? There are no co-pays for office visits once the health fee is billed each semester. The health fee does NOT cover prescriptions, referrals, some laboratory services, imaging tests, emergency room visits, etc.  

What about health insurance? Student Health does not accept health insurance, so any additional clinic fees are self-pay. However, health insurance is strongly recommended to cover medical costs not included in the health fee. If you are uninsured, consider health insurance options through Medicaid or the Marketplace.

What payment forms are accepted at Student Health? Student Health is cashless. Only major credit cards, debit cards, Rambucks, Apple Pay, & Samsung Pay are accepted.


Are You Covered?

Need to apply for, renew, or change your health insurance

  • The open enrollment period for the 2022 Health Insurance Marketplace has passed. At this time, you cannot get 2022 coverage through the Marketplace unless you qualify under certain life events. Open enrollment for 2023 plans will begin in November.
  • Many students are eligible for quality health coverage through Virginia Medicaid based on their income. To see if you qualify, go to www.coverva.org. Enrollment applications for Medicaid are accepted year-round.

Please Check Web Portal Messages!

Secure messaging through the Web Portal is the primary means by which Student Health contacts patients. Email contact is not considered secure and private.

  • You will receive a text notification and/or an email when a secure message has been sent to you. 
  • Simply log in to the Web Portal with your eID & password to access your secure messages.
  • Please do not ignore messages as they often contain important health information, such as lab results, updates on vaccine requirements, etc.

Take-Care-Of-Yourself Checklist

It's a good idea to have a small supply of self-care items on hand for minor illnesses. Make a DIY sick kit with these low-cost items available at the Student Health Pharmacy:

  • Antibiotic ointment
  • Bandaids
  • A digital thermometer
  • Pain relievers (acetaminophen/Tylenol, ibuprofen/Advil, naproxen/Aleve)
  • Allergy pills (Benadryl, Zyrtec, Claritin, or Allegra)
  • Cough & cold medications

Students With Disabilities

Students who have a documented disability & require special accommodations can contact Student Accessibility and Educational Opportunity (SAEO). Health Sciences students should contact the Division for Academic Success (DAS) for assistance.‌
