COVID-19 Testing at NMU

A limited number of free at-home testing kits are available to NMU students (must present NMU ID) at the NMU Health Center during regular University business hours, the NMU Police Department 24-hours a day, and at residence hall lobby desk during desk hours.

There are also several area pharmacies providing COVID-19 testing and at-home testing kits.

At this time, there is no cost to receive a COVID-19 vaccination or booster shot.

Providing Proof of Vaccination

Students and employees can quickly and conveniently upload vaccination cards or other types of vaccination documentation through The Bridge. After you upload your image the NMU Health Center medical staff will review your document and mark your NMU record with a COVID-19 vaccination flag.

Knowing the percentage of our campus population that is vaccinated will help make decisions about what pandemic protocols need to remain or can be lifted as we prepare for the fall semester.
