Register for Free COVID Testing

PNW strongly recommends that you get vaccinated against COVID-19. Individuals who decide not to not get vaccinated are strongly encouraged to participate in the surveillance testing program on campus.

Free Covid Care will offer testing on campus at no charge to PNW faculty, staff and students. You will need to be registered before going to the testing site. 

Important Registration Details

  • You only need to register once. You do not need to register each time you are tested.
  • You do not need to sign up for a time slot. Walk-in appointments are available.
  • The registration process will direct you to a location in Valparaiso for testing. Do not go to the Valparaiso location. Instead, please visit the PNW Hammond or Westville testing site below.
