As promised in Wednesday’s message, we have the posted the most up-to-date list of programs that require face-to-face instruction or that may otherwise require a student to be on campus for this fall semester.
If you are a new freshman or new transfer student with 30 credits or fewer, do not worry about this update; you will be in face-to-face classes this fall (unless you have made other arrangements with your department chairperson or through the Department for Disability Access and Advising).
Programs are divided into colleges. If you cannot find your program, please reach out to your department chair or advisor for help. You can find your department’s contact information in MyIUP.
In many cases, program and course delivery remain unchanged from what was previously scheduled, but please check the listing to make sure you have the most current information.
As we have told you, we will work with students in special circumstances on an individual basis to provide the best possible learning platform. If you believe that you are a student with this need, please work with the Department for Disability Access and Advising. Any student who has concerns over attending hybrid courses in person can elect to continue in a course remotely, unless that is not possible within program requirements. If you have this concern, please contact your department chairperson.
We have designed this plan to balance health and safety concerns (minimizing the number of people on campus) with our educational mission. However, all students will have access to campus facilities (dining, library, gym, fitness facilities)—not just students in the groups listed above. In the interest of safety and social distancing, on-campus services may be limited, operating remotely, or open on a restricted basis. More information, hours of operation, and details will be posted as soon as they are finalized.
Please note that any student is welcome to live in on-campus housing (as space permits), regardless of the type of delivery of your classes. If you are taking all online classes and want to stay home for the semester, you can. In that case, we will drop your housing and meal plan with no fee prior to move-in and provide a refund if you have already paid for housing and dining.
All on-campus residents are required to have a meal plan, but meal plans of all types are available to students who commute to campus or who live off campus. If you live within commuting distance and would like to have a meal plan, you are able to select a commuter meal plan through your MyIUP account (select campus services > housing services > Indiana Campus Commuter Meal Plan).
Regardless of housing arrangement or course and program delivery, every student will receive a safety kit. Kits will be distributed to on-campus new students at the staging area for move-in. Continuing students will receive them at their residence hall. Information about how to pick up your safety kit if you are a commuter or off-campus resident will be sent to you next week.
Review the information for face-to-face/on-campus programs this fall. If you have questions about your academic schedule, please contact your department chairperson. For questions about housing or dining, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, respectively.
Thank you for you continued patience during these unprecedented times.
Be safe and well,Fall 2020 Planning Committee
