Return to Campus: Faculty/Student Flex

by University Marketing and Communications

Editor’s Note: Today we conclude our series on operations as the University has entered Step Three in our Return to Campus Plan. Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs Jacqueline Huntoon discusses the dynamics between faculty and students as we approach the fall semester start.

What process should a student follow to request to study remotely during the fall semester? 

Students who can make these requests fall into two categories: 1) Students who have preexisting medical conditions that put them at higher risk if they get COVID-19; and 2) Students who are facing unforeseen or extenuating circumstances and believe studying remotely is necessary. Students who fall into the first category should work with Student Disability Services to obtain permission to study remotely for fall semester. Students in the second category have been instructed to make their request through the COVID-19 Special Consideration Request Form. These requests are being reviewed by a committee that includes Michigan Tech faculty and staff members. Faculty teaching courses that include these remote-study students will be notified through the regular accommodation notification process. 


MTU Flex: Self-monitoring—What to Do if You Forget

Editor’s Note: A previous post introduced the COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form and explained how to use it to gain access to campus buildings. This post explains what to do if you forget to submit it.

Fast forward to fall. You wake up late. You have to skip your coffee to get out the door on time. When you arrive on campus, you realize you forgot to submit the COVID-19 Daily Symptom Monitoring Form—which means you’re locked out of your building.

If this happens, don’t worry. You can submit the form right here on campus, and your HuskyCard tap access will be restored quickly (usually within five minutes).
