Your Safety is our Top Priority

The university has taken measures to ensure social distancing and other recommendations are followed:

  • Classrooms will be labeled with signage stipulating the maximum occupancy allowed to ensure social distancing. Your faculty may control student occupancy through hybrid delivery. Check POUNCE and D2L for more instructions.

  • Social distancing expectations of 6 or more feet will be implemented in all spaces.

  • Spaces will be disinfected daily as routine cleaning.

  • Signage will promote hygiene and physical distancing protocols.

Augusta University strongly recommends students bring a laptop for the Spring 2021 semester, to ensure they can complete coursework from their home or residence hall. If you cannot acquire a laptop before classes begin in the fall, complete the Technological Needs Form to request a loaner laptop for fall semester.

For students who are immunocompromised and cannot return to in-person classes, contact Testing and Disability Services (TDS) to discuss your options. The team in TDS will help you work with your professors.

Back to the Classroom

As the the university prepares for a safe return to campus, please note the following tips about returning to the classroom:

Students need to check POUNCE and D2L regularly for updates about your classes from your faculty, and should review both platforms before classes start.

Students should assume classes will be taught face-to-face unless indicated otherwise in POUNCE. See the Notes section in POUNCE for whether the course is hybrid or online.
