COVID Testing Info:

    The Student Health and Counseling Center (SHCC) continues to offer COVID-19 testing to our students. If you are seeking testing, please note the following procedure:

    You must first be triaged via phone by one of our medical providers. Call SHCC at 503-838-8313 to begin this process and find out if you meet current criteria for testing. If a medical provider determines you do, you will be directed on next steps for testing, including time and location.

    There is NO COST  for eligible students to receive COVID testing

    In this time of uncertainty, please do not hesitate to reach out to us with questions about testing, COVID-19, or any other medical, mental health, or general health concerns.

    Be well!

    NOTE: For COVID testing, as well as all SHCC services, students must be eligible for services. Students taking 1+ credit of in-person classes are automatically assessed the health fee and therefore eligible. Students taking online only classes must opt in to be assessed the health fee. You can call us at 503-838-8313 or email to opt-in or if you have any questions. 


     For all SHCC events or groups:

    If you would like to request disability related accommodations to participate in a WOU/SHCC activity, please notify Disability Services (ODS) at 503-838-8250 or at least three (3) business days in advance. For ASL interpreting, Typewell transcribing, or captioning services please complete the request form.
