SDSU Global Campus

Dear Semester at SDSU, IEP, and UPP students,

We understand that as an International student, you have travelled far from home and may need some extra support to help you get settled. We wanted to let you know that SDSU Global Campus is here to help!

As we all continue to deal with the impacts of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we know that staying healthy, finding testing sites, and handling other aspects of the outbreak may be of particular concern to you.

Here are some helpful resources you can use for staying healthy during COVID-19, getting tested if you suspect you may have contracted the virus, and what to do if you test positive for COVID-19.

Instructions for Using the COVID-19 Clearance Medallions
We would like to share some important information about the COVID-19 clearance medallion, which you may need to provide as you access campus services and engage with others in classrooms, labs, the ARC (Aztec Recreation Center), the library, advising sessions, office spaces, or other campus settings.

Clearance medallions appear as circles that are either red for "not cleared" or green for "cleared" to physically access campus locations. You can easily pull up your clearance medallion in your HealtheConnect portal by clicking the "COVID-19" tab at the top of the page or by accessing the application on your cell phone.

How to Stay Safe
Here are some general prevention tips and best practices from SDSU Student Health Services. As a reminder, all students who are physically on the SDSU campus for any reason are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, or be granted an exemption from the vaccine requirement.

How, When, and Where to Get Tested
The County of San Diego is operating a COVID-19 testing location at SDSU. The site is open to members of the campus community as well as the general public.

Testing is available at the Parma Payne Goodall Alumni Center, 5250 55th Street, Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 am to 5:30 pm. Appointments are not required. Parking for those getting tested, including spaces for individuals with disabilities, is located in a designated area on the second level of Parking Structure 7. Anyone visiting for COVID-19 testing is required to wear a facial covering.

Enrolled students also can receive COVID testing at Student Health Services at the Calpulli Center Information Booth, directly across Hardy Avenue from Global Campus. Testing is available with an appointment on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm and Wednesdays from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Online scheduling is available through HealtheConnect, our secure online health portal. Students can also schedule appointments by calling Student Health Services at (619) 594-4325.

Information is available online about other county-run testing locations.

What to Do if You've Tested Positive for COVID-19
If you have tested positive for COVID-19, you should immediately notify SDSU health officials by completing and submitting a COVID-19 Test Form. You can access and submit the form by visiting the SDSU Student Health Services Webpage, and clicking on the COVID-19 Test Form.

Report COVID Cases

It is also important that you personally contact your instructors to let them know of your status. Due to privacy laws governing the sharing of your personal health information, your instructors will not be notified of your status, even after you have submitted the COVID-19 Test Form. Similarly, we at SDSU Global Campus are not notified of your positive test. Therefore, unless you notify us, we won't know that you may be in need of extra support.

Semester at SDSU students can notify us of your positive COVID-19 test results by sending an email to Miffy Yuan at SDSU Undergraduate Pathway Program (UPP) and English for Academic Purposes (EAP) students can e-mail Theresa Perales at Once you have notified us, we will then be in touch with you to ensure your needs are being met and how we can help.

Again, we are thrilled to have you studying at SDSU this year and want to support you in any way to help make this experience rewarding, memorable, and most of all, safe. Don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

Thank you.
