COVID-19 tests available free to all NDSU students and employees

The North Dakota University System (NDUS) in cooperation with the North Dakota Department of Health is arranging mass testing events for COVID-19 in multiple locations across the state. NDSU current students, incoming students, faculty and staff are encouraged to get tested.

Learn more about testing locations and times.

The initial testing events are scheduled for Aug. 3-25 in Fargo, Bismarck, Grand Forks, Wahpeton, Jamestown, Mayville, Bottineau, Minot, Devils Lake, Belcourt, Fort Totten, Fort Yates, New Town, Williston and Dickinson. Exact testing dates, times and locations for each city will be announced later. Pre-registration at is encouraged to facilitate an efficient collection process and minimize your time at the testing site.

Tests are available to all current and new students, faculty and staff at any of the state’s 11 NDUS campuses. Individuals can get tested at the site nearest to their current place of residence, with the goal of getting the results prior to travelling to NDSU. NDSU is not requiring documentation of negative test results. If your results are positive, we ask you to follow public health guidelines and isolate at your home place of residence. 

Students and employees who live outside North Dakota also can participate by travelling to the nearest NDUS testing site. However, testing closer to home is encouraged if it is available and distance prohibits travelling to North Dakota. 

Additional details will be available when we get closer to the start of the testing events.
