Adding or Changing an individual in the University's testing program (for Department Administrators)

    Adding / Changing Staff or Faculty Testing Groups

    Please reach out to your divisional representative below to add an individual to the University's testing program, or change an individual's testing group in the program.

    If you are requesting a new hire in the testing program, they must have an appointment in Aurora with a HUID to be added into the testing program. Please request a testing group for your new hires before their start date / first day on campus. 

    If you have an employee terminate from the University, the action of processing their termination will also remove them from the testing program, so long as they have no other active appointments at the University.
