Mandatory COVID-19 Testing for Spring 2022 Semester

Out of an abundance of caution and as an enhancement of campus safety protocols, Pasadena City College will be conducting mandatory COVID-19 testing for all faculty, staff, and students enrolled in a face-to-face or hybrid course or accessing in-person services which require you to be on campus for the Spring 2022 semester.  This testing requirement does not apply to students who are taking online classes only and who will not be on campus or accessing in-person services for the Spring 2022 semester.

All faculty, staff, and students must receive a COVID-19 test prior to entering a building or classroom location. PCC will offer free COVID-19 tests on campus to help you meet this requirement. Please note: These tests are available only for current students and employees. Campus testing is available during the following dates and times:

Time-Saving Tips

  • Use the drive-up testing center in Lot 3 to get your test done before you park.
  • Pre-register for testing to reduce wait time and paperwork.
  • Students who pre-register and take a COVID-19 test on Saturday, January 22, or Sunday, January 23, will be entered into an opportunity drawing to win one of 10 Apple AirPods or one of 10 $200 Visa Gift Cards.

Alternate Testing Option

  • You may choose to use an alternate testing provider, provided that the test is taken within 72 hours prior to your first day of returning to campus.  For example, if you are returning to PCC on Monday, January 24, you should take the COVID-19 test either Friday (Jan. 21), Saturday (Jan. 22) or Sunday (Jan. 23).

  • During this timeframe, please be sure to keep record of your negative COVID-19 results with you at all times. Please be sure to keep the paper or electronic results of your negative COVID-19 test received from a PCC center or another provider as proof. You may be asked to show proof of a valid negative test as you enter classrooms or other service areas around campus.

Once again, thank you for your time and effort in making PCC a safer environment for all of us.  If you have any questions, please email us at

Ongoing testing requirements for student, faculty, or staff approved for a vaccination exemption 

Any student, faculty, or staff approved for a vaccination exemption is required to test once a week. Student-athletes, regardless of vaccination status, may be required to test multiple times a week.

We provide testing on campus in the Circadian Room (CC130), which is on the first floor of the CC Building.  Testing on campus does not require you to submit any additional materials, as we will have your test results on file.

Testing dates and times are as follows:
Testing check-in closes 15 minutes before the end times listed below. Any students arriving past this time may be turned away.

Monday:          9 am – 4 pm

Testing Off-Campus

If you cannot get tested on campus during these times, you may test with a different provider. There are many no-cost, no-appointment-required testing services in the community. Here is a link for a resource to those services:

Those test results must be submitted at the links below. Your test result submission must include your name, test date, facility, and result.
