Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Disclaimer

Since March 2020, the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives. Wearing face masks, maintaining social distance, and working and learning remotely have become part of our daily existence.

As we continue to face uncertain times for the next academic year, each member of the Eastern Connecticut State University campus community has a responsibility to do their part to ensure our campus stays as healthy and safe as possible. This means following national, state and local health guidelines and requirements, as well as practicing the safety measures we have put into place on the Eastern campus. These include social distancing, wearing face masks, not reporting to class or work if sick, and isolating when required.

While our current schedule of courses includes on-ground instruction, if there is an outbreak of the coronavirus, the University reserves the right to adapt class formats to an entirely online modality if public health conditions warrant. Because tuition and fees are in exchange for learning, academic credit, as well as a variety of non-academic services — regardless of whether classes are taught on-ground, in a hybrid environment or entirely remotely — any move to online class formats will not result in an increase or decrease of tuition and fees.

Eastern Connecticut State University’s priority continues to be the health, safety and welfare of each member of our campus community. Even given the many steps we have taken to reduce risk on campus, it is not possible to guarantee a disease-free environment, or guarantee that we will not return to online-only learning should health conditions change. If you choose to return to campus during the pandemic, you accept that you are willing to do your part to help keep the campus safe and acknowledge that you may be required to complete your coursework in a remote learning environment.

Thank you for your cooperation and willingness to work with other members of the campus community to follow health and safety standards. We look forward to providing you with an outstanding public liberal arts education during the 2020–21 Academic Year
