No cost rapid COVID-19 testing for SMU employees

No cost test with same day results available at nine DFW locations

SMU is now offering a fast and convenient option for COVID-19 testing with same day results for employees and their families. The University will cover 100 percent of the cost, and no insurance paperwork is needed for those who have SMU health benefits.

The University has contracted with Virtual Care for Families to provide curbside rapid COVID-19 antigen testing at nine clinic locations in the DFW area. Testing is available for SMU staff and faculty members and their dependents who have symptoms or circumstances in which they may have been exposed to the virus.  

To schedule a test, go online for an initial screening via telemedicine at Based on the screening, an appointment for testing can be scheduled at one of the Urgent Care for Kids clinic locations. Upon arrival, a provider will complete the test at the employee’s vehicle. 

Telemedicine appointments may be scheduled every day from 8 a.m. to midnight. The testing service is available weekdays from noon or 3 p.m. (depending upon the location) to 9 p.m. and on weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

Employees who test positive should complete the SMU Health Reporting Form and remain at home. If a dependent tests positive, employees should contact their supervisor for additional instructions.
