Officials at Texas A&M University-Kingsville are encouraging students to register for the university’s free Campus COVID-19 testing before they go home for Thanksgiving. Students need not return to campus after Thanksgiving as the last few days of classes and finals will be held online.


“The Center for Disease Control estimates that 40 percent of people infected with COVID-19 show no symptoms. We encourage our students to sign up for the test. We do not want our students going home and unintentionally infecting their loved ones,” said Jo Elda Castillo-Alaniz, director of Student Health and Wellness.


How to register for the COVID-19 test

You must pre-register at with your university email address so you may receive the test results from Curative (the company the A&M System has contracted to process the tests).  Once you complete the online pre-registration process, you will receive a confirmation document from Curative along with instructions explaining the testing process.


Pre-registration for the tests opened at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 16, for appointments on

Tuesday, Nov. 17, between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m.

Thursday, Nov, 19, between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m.

Monday, Nov. 23, between 2:30 and 4:30 p.m.


If you make an appointment for a particular time slot, but do not arrive to the test site and get signed in during that time window, your appointment will be canceled.


The day of the test

Please bring the Curative email document verifying your registration with you to the testing site, which is located adjacent to the Student Health & Wellness Center. You also must know your UIN or K number for testing. Wear a face covering when you arrive for testing and don’t bring guests. Testing staff will assist you through the process.
