At Home COVID-19 Fulgent Genetics Test Kit

Faculty, staff and students who are based out of remote facilities or who are not on campus during the open hours for the on-campus testing locations are eligible to receive an at-home COVID-19 test kit.

At-home testing is:

  • Available to unvaccinated individual students and unvaccinated individual employees once every 4 days.

  • Not available to students and employees who are entirely remote.
  • Not available to those who have access to COVID-19 testing on campus.

Results from your at-home COVID-19 test will be sent to you electronically, as well as to UCSC as part of the campus COVID-19 tracking and mitigation efforts. 

When requesting a COVID-19 Test Kit code, please allow 5 business days for delivery and two days for test results. Please use your @ucsc.edu email account when requesting and activating your test kit code.

The completed COVID-19 test can be dropped off at FedEx during the week only; https://www.fedex.com/en-us/shipping/dropbox.html, as long as it is before that location's cut-off for outgoing shipments.  Tests cannot be dropped off on Saturday or Sunday.

If you are a student or employee that is required to undergo COVID-19 testing as part of your NPI (Non-Pharmaceutical Intervention), but you do not want to use the at-home COVID-19 test kit, you must undergo your required asymptomatic COVID-19 testing on the main UCSC campus.
