What CSU students REALLY need to know
CSU has put together a comprehensive Success Guide to Online Classes, which covers everything from how to get your technology set up and how to manage your time to how to engage with your instructors to get the most out of each class.
Complete the daily symptom tracker before going to campus or to report if you believe you have been exposed.
Stay home if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or believe you have been exposed.
Follow all public health precautions described in this video. These include:
- Get tested for COVID-19. If you are a resident student, you can get a free test this week. And if you’re not a resident, get tested locally.
- Always wear a mask in all buildings except in your own apartment or dorm room. This is mandatory.
- Physically distance from other individuals at least six feet at all times.
- Wear a mask outside if you cannot be more than six feet from others.
- Limit all social gatherings – on campus or off – to 10 people. In those small gatherings, Everyone must wear masks and observe 6 ft physical distancing requirements.
- Avoid gatherings – on and off campus – where there are more than 10 people and where mask-wearing and physical distancing rules are not followed.
- Follow directional signs when entering and exiting buildings. Some classrooms have more than one door. Different doors may be noted as entries and exits.
- Follow your instructor’s directions to sit in your assigned seat. This will be your seat for the remainder of the semester.
- Disinfect your area (their desktop, workstation, seats). Pick up wipes from the sanitation station near your classroom. Hand sanitizer also will be at the stations.
- Listen carefully to all instructions your instructor provides about how to conduct yourself in the classroom. Take notes if you need to, ask questions, and make sure you feel comfortable with the expectations the instructor sets out.
- Students may briefly pass each other on their way to their assigned seat without becoming a close contact.
- You won’t be permitted to eat in the classroom. Eat before you go to class. If you need to drink during class, you can briefly pull down your mask to take a drink.
- Instructors are being discouraged from passing out paper, so more course materials than usual will be electronic. If you need any accommodations as a result of this shift, contact the Student Disability Center.
