Utah State University students registered for courses this fall were emailed Wednesday, July 1, notifying them how to find information about course delivery methods, the technology needed for each class, and how USU will maximize safety in the classroom.
The university will utilize multiple course delivery methods, including: traditional face-to-face; hybrid face-to-face; interactive broadcast; online only; web broadcast; and blended delivery. More information is available about these methods USU Ready, a website developed to help students and faculty find the resources needed for a successful fall semester.
This fall, all students will need access to a computer and high-speed internet. USU’s Service Desk team is available to help answer questions about technology usage and requirements.
Additionally, for those classes that are in-person, face coverings will be required. Seating will be marked to ensure social distancing, and high-touch surfaces will be cleaned regularly to help minimize the risk of COVID-19.
“To protect each other, we’re asking students and faculty to wear face coverings in every classroom around campus and where social distancing is difficult,” said USU Vice Provost Janet Anderson. “We need to do it because we care about each other and to allow for continued face-to-face interaction this fall.”
Students are encouraged to review their class schedules and instructional delivery methods at my.usu.edu and make any necessary adjustments. USU also has a live chat feature, as well as phone and email support, through the USU Registrar.
