On-Ground students

Coming to campus for an on-ground course requires you to follow specific instructions to minimize the spread of COVID-19. Only students with on-ground classes may come onto campus.

Every Day That You Come To Campus

  1. Before you leave home, or upon arrival in the parking lot, and before attending class, complete the Daily Self-Assessment, including taking your temperature with a thermometer. After you submit your answers to the Daily Self-Assessment, you will receive a response that tells you that you may proceed to campus or you may not proceed to campus
  2. Take the Daily Health Self-Assessment
  3. Bring a mask and wear a mask upon arrival to the campus
  4. Practice social distancing
  5. Wash hands frequently or use hand sanitizer

Stay home if you feel sick or have COVID-19 symptoms, recently had close contact with a person with COVID-19, have a fever, or if you have been told that you have COVID-19.

What you will notice when you come to campus

  • Fewer people on campus
  • Fewer students in classes to allow for social distancing
