Students who are experiencing significant symptoms consistent with COVID-19 should schedule an appointment with Student Health Services through MyHealthSpace for an in- person or virtual visit with a health care provider for appropriate testing, and subsequent treatment options.
Students, faculty and staff can purchase rapid at-home testing kits from the Student Health Services Pharmacy. Nearly all health insurance companies will reimburse for the cost of the testing. South Carolina DHEC provides free Rapid at-home Covid testing. Most other community pharmacies/urgent care providers have at-home and on-site testing available. Additionally, at-home testing may also be ordered online from national pharmacy chains.
If you were tested at a non-university location, please upload your test result to MyHealthSpace. Login using your USC username and password and then on the next screen your date of birth. Click on Medical Clearances and then locate COVID Test/Vaccine Upload 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:
- In the left navigation, go to “Messages”
- Click on the “New Message” box
- You will see a list of options, including one that says, “I want to upload COVID-19 Test Results”
- Select that item and it will generate a message box and an “Add Attachment” button for you to upload your report
Please ensure your name, date of birth, and date of test are visible in your results upload. The absence of this information can delay processing.
