I am not sure if I have the appropriate digital capabilities off campus to ensure teaching and studying online only. How can I check if the technology I have at home is sufficient?
Please take the survey from Information Technology Services (ITS) to help us assess your internet connectivity and computer hardware capabilities to support online instruction and business operations. Depending on the results of the survey, ITS is prepared to provide additional support and resources to ensure that you can remain connected to the campus and to our students.

I am a student; is it possible for me to complete my classwork virtually?
All the campuses have moved to online and remote instruction for all classes. Students with questions about studying or attending classes remotely should contact [email protected].

Is Pass/Fail an option for students?
The university will allow undergraduate students to take some or all courses pass/fail this semester. Summer grading will return to the normal rules. The policy is as follows: Undergraduate students may—but are not required to—change some or all classes to pass/fail any time before midnight on the last day of classes, April 14, 2020.

Students should consult with their academic advisors if they have questions about the implications of opting for pass/fail grading.
