Coming to Campus

Any students or visitors coming to campus should follow the following self-screening guidelines:

Do a Personal Health Check

  2. Do you have any of the following: fever (above 100.4 degrees) or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat?

If you can answer "yes" to any of these questions, do not come to campus. Call your instructor to let them know you will be remote or absent from class. Then, please contact the Dean of Students Office:
