Coronavirus Guidance for Students in CHHS Degree Programs

The College of Health and Human Services knows that this is a difficult time for students and their families. We are here to help. We are committed to ensuring that students can stay on time to their degree even as we meet the challenges of COVID-19. We urge all students to work closely with their academic advisor and course faculty to stay on track to complete their degree. Stay up-to-date by visiting the ISU Back on Track Plan. All CHHS students are eligible to receive services to support your health and wellbeing. Please go to the Dean of Students website to find out what is available. 

In preparation for the spring semester, Indiana State University is working with state and local public health officials to make sure we can continue to deliver on campus instruction whenever possible. We will continue to require social distancing in our college and this means adjusting how we deliver some classes. Most classes will be delivered through a mix of in-class, live streaming (sometimes called synchronous), and online instruction (sometimes called asynchronous). If your course was already online, it will remain online. Indiana State University will continue to require everyone to wear a face covering in all indoor instructional and public spaces. If you have questions about your spring schedule, please contact your academic advisor or the Associate Dean for Student Affairs, Dr. Peggy Weber.

To ensure students’ safety and wellbeing in clinical, fieldwork, and internships, students are expected to communicate regularly with their faculty, receive training and education in the appropriate prevention measures, and wear appropriate protective equipment. Please communicate to your faculty any concerns that you have. If you are not sure who to contact, please call the Dean’s Office 812-237-3683 or email us.

All students must follow ISU policies for preventing transmission of COVID-19 including: wearing a face covering; practicing social distancing; staying home if you are sick and avoiding contact with people who are sick; avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; covering cough or sneeze with a tissue and throwing tissue away; and washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. All students must complete the daily Sycamore Symptom Assessment Survey if they plan to be on campus or at clinical, fieldwork, or internship sites on or off campus. CHHS students are expected to cooperate with contact tracing and quarantine or isolate if instructed by a contact tracer to do so. Students in quarantine or isolation will be allowed to continue their classes via distance. More information about how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19 may be found on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention information website.
