A GREEN Badge Is Required to Access Any UCSB Facility

If You Have Not Been Vaccinated - Weekly COVID Testing Is Required to Get a Green Badge

UCSB COVID-19 Clearance Badges have been updated to facilitate entry into concerts and large campus events.

A green badge with a red banner means you have not received a required test within the past 72 hrs (3 days)

 

Plan Accordingly -

  • Students that have had a COVID-19 infection within the last 90 days, and we have a record of your positive COVID-19 results, our computer system will automatically exempt you from any testing requirements for 90 days.
  • For students that have had a COVID-19 infection within the last 90 days, and we do not have a record of your positive COVID-19 results, you may be blocked from getting a clearance badge. To avoid interference with your arrival, we recommend that you GET THE COVID-19 TEST. If the test result is positive, you can explain your situation when we contact you with the results.
  • We also encourage you to submit your positive results to Student Health.  Instructions for uploading your results are located at the bottom of this page.  

How COVID-19 Patient Portal Badges Work

You can view/show their current screening compliance status using the Patient Portal. The screening badge can easily be shown using a cell phone when the student is logged in to the Student Health patient portal.

  • The Show Badge button shows the current Screening Badge.
  • The Complete Survey button allows a student to take a survey at any time.
