Returning to Campus
RETURNING TO SCUOur overarching goal since the start of the pandemic has been to reduce the number of students and faculty on campus to the greatest extent possible, while preserving graduation timelines. SCU will not require vaccination but will continue current safety practices including: indoor masking, social distancing, room ventilation, use of a screening app (Smartabase), checking in to campus with temperature check, assigned student lab groups, etc. Lecture courses.
- Historic on-campus lecture courses will be taught online via synchronous, technology enhanced, and interactive remote learning. Classes are held during scheduled times. Interactive Online classes provide group-based interactive learning through Zoom. Classes happen in real time with required attendance during a set schedule.
- Lab classes that are offered on-campus are modified to meet safety guidelines (i.e. group size, distancing, ventilation, enhanced cleaning). Labs that don’t require in-person learning are offered through Virtual Interactive and/or Simulated Labs.
- Protocols remain in place to minimize the potential of exposure to the SARS-COV-2 virus for those attending labs or clinical education campus.
- Prior to returning to campus, all students (new and continuing) will need to complete an acknowledgement form, a training, and download a smart phone app for screening. For convenience these items have been placed inside a Canvas course named, COVID-19 Limited Campus Opening Training for Students
Health & Safety Protocols & Policy
Under the terms of our Return to Campus, continuing students are required to acknowledge and adhere to SCU’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols prior to voluntarily returning to campus. The University has developed these protocols for the safety of our community. The health and safety protocols for the campus address environmental, cleaning, behavioral, classroom, surveillance, testing, and containment considerations and are consistent with county, state, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requirements and best practices. While on campus, students must comply with SCU’s Site‐Specific Protection Plan. Students who do not comply with the health and safety protocol policy may be subject to discipline up to and including dismissal from their academic program. Please reference links to the three documents below and the training video.
