- U-M COVID-19 Community Sampling and Tracking Program (CSTP) is a free, asymptomatic testing program for all U-M students, faculty and staff on the Ann Arbor campus. We would encourage students and staff to use CSTP for routine screening. Students who do not submit proof of vaccination and/or who are not considered fully vaccinated are required to participate in weekly COVID-19 testing. Weekly COVID-19 testing must be administered by University Health Service (UHS: symptomatic) or the Community Sampling and Tracking Program (CSTP: asymptomatic). Once registered for the program, you can schedule your testing at a time and location that is convenient for you. To register and schedule your testing, please go to the CSTP website
