Free PCR COVID-19 Testing

Fullerton College provides free, walk-in COVID-19 testing to all members of the campus community.  All members of the campus community are encouraged to test regularly, however, students, who have an approved exemption and want to attend in-person classes, are required to test weekly.

Symptomatic individuals and those who may have been exposed to COVID 19 may receive drive-thru testing in the small loading parking lot east of Building 200. Please call 949-375-2433 when you arrive.

Non-symptomatic individuals may receive testing in Building 1000, Room 1018 where the student check-in center is located. All Fullerton College students are required to take a health self-assessment, available on the Fullerton College Mobile app, and have their temperature taken before starting their class. This is required each day they attend a class.

Parking is available in Staff Lot 8 next to Building 1000 for individuals taking tests. A parking permit is not needed.
