Hello,

To help keep Columbia-Greene Community College safe and stop the spread of COVID-19, SUNY has mandated virus testing for all students taking classes on campus. The College will be administering the saliva sample method, a non-invasive procedure that uses a mouth swab technique.

This week's testing will be held on Tuesday, October 27, and Wednesday, October 28, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with subsequent tests scheduled for November 9 and 10, November 23 and 24, and December 7 and 8.

Testing is required every two weeks.

Getting Started

1. Create an account for testing at https://register.suny-covid.com/. Complete as much of the registration as possible prior to scheduled appointment. If needed, a College representative can assist with remaining questions at the testing site. This information is for SUNY purposes only.
