Lubbock Christian University encourages all eligible persons to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, consulting with your personal health care provider to address any questions or concerns you may have.
University leadership continues to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will implement appropriately responsive protocols as the pandemic evolves. Decisions are made on these three tenets:
Following good health protocols is everyone’s responsibility and creates a caring environment where we are all doing our part to help keep our community healthy. A general overview of current protocols can be found below. Continue to monitor this site for regularly updated protocols and educational resources.
Lubbock Christian University policy states “Public health situations may arise for which federal, state, or local health authorities determine institutional action may be warranted. In such cases, the university will implement applicable guidance provided by health authorities, when feasible and consistent with the mission and values of LCU.” The guidance and protocols below are currently in effect in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and are subject to change as circumstances warrant.
LCU is committed to face-to-face instruction and returning as closely as possible to pre-COVID protocols.
Lubbock Christian University is a Christ-centered, academic community of learners, transforming the hearts, minds, and hands of students for lives of purpose and service. Part of the transformation of our hearts includes how we live with, and among, our fellow members of the Lubbock Christian University community. As a community who follows the path of Jesus, we agree to put the well-being of others ahead of our own.
While we are all hoping to see a steady decline in COVID cases over the coming weeks and months, COVID does continue to be an issue in Lubbock and the LCU community. For those who are ill enough to feel they need a medical checkup, the LCU Medical Clinic does continue to maintain rapid COVID tests (combined with flu testing) available to LCU students and employees, at a cost of $30. Please call before coming to the clinic (806.720.7482).
For those who have only minor symptoms and are not sick enough to need a clinic appointment, or for those who are only wanting COVID testing due to contact exposure, or for screening due to travel or work requirements, free COVID testing will once again be available on campus beginning 1/31/22.

If you have any other questions about this testing, please call the LCU Medical Clinic (806.720.7482); please donot call the Rip Griffin Center or Athletics Office.
