Flexibility in instructional delivery is necessary to accommodate both student and faculty needs. Faculty should prepare for courses to be delivered both on campus and online to ensure that learning will continue for all students regardless of the students’ ability to be in the classroom in person. Disruptions to course participation and/or assignment completion related to COVID-19 will be recognized as circumstances for which absences are excused.
During the semester, students who test positive for the virus or come into contact with someone who tests positive will be required to isolate or quarantine and will not be able to participate in in-person classes. These students who must miss class due to COVID-19 diagnosis, symptoms, or potential exposure to an individual(s) with a diagnosis or symptoms should be able to make up classwork without penalty. Students will be asked to correspond with faculty as they are able in order to remain up to date with classwork. Students who are required to quarantine based on COVID-19 diagnosis, symptoms, or exposure should contact Accessibility Services via email. Students can also submit a request for accommodations via the form found here or access more detailed information on the Accessibility Services web page.
Some students may not be able to return to campus because of health concerns for themselves or for family members, and these students should be given the ability to participate in courses remotely. If a student or a family member is part of an at-risk population, the student is caring for an ill family member, or the student is unable to participate in on-campus, group instruction due to the pandemic, that student should contact Accessibility Servicesvia email. Students can also submit a request for accommodations via the form found here or access more detailed information on the Accessibility Services web page.
