Daily Health Screenings

University students, faculty, staff, retirees, spouses and visitors are only required to complete a daily COVID-19 health questionnaire if they are coming to campus that day or if they reside on campus. Those not planning to come to campus that day are not required to answer the questionnaire and can disregard the daily email. 

You will not be granted access to any UD building unless you have completed this daily health check. 

Health screenings will help provide early detection of a COVID-19 infection and may help prevent an outbreak in the UD community. Health screenings are an integral component of the University’s plan to help protect the health and safety of all students, faculty, staff and visitors, as well as their families and friends. It is absolutely essential that all questions are answered completely and honestly each time the health screening is completed.

Yes, all individuals coming to campus and entering any campus building are expected to complete the daily health screening and to be cleared prior to entering a building. The health screening questionnaire is available at http://covidcheck.udel.edu/ and via a QR code posted around campus that can be scanned with a smartphone. 

The health screening questionnaire is available at http://covidcheck.udel.edu/ and via a QR code posted around campus that can be scanned with a smartphone.

The questionnaire will ask the individual about possible COVID-19 symptoms and potential exposure to others who may be infected with the virus. 

Once you submit your screening, you will receive one of three results: a green check, a red X or a yellow triangle.

Green Check: If you report no COVID-19 symptoms or possible exposure, you will receive a green check and you may enter campus facilities.

Yellow Triangle: You are receiving this message because you have not uploaded or taken a UD COVID-19 test in the last 7 days. You will only be permitted to access your residence hall (if applicable), a University testing center and Student Health Services until you upload a negative COVID-19 test result from the last 7 days. 

Red X: Based on your survey responses, you are not cleared to access campus today. If you are a current student either living in a residence hall or off campus, contact Student Health Services at 302-831-2226. For all others, we recommend you quarantine/isolate at home and contact a medical professional.

You will not be permitted to enter campus facilities. Cases of non-compliance may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct (for students), the Provost’s Office (for faculty), Human Resources (for staff) or UD Police (for visitors). 

You are receiving this message because you have not uploaded or taken a UD COVID-19 test in the last 7 days. You will only be permitted to access your residence hall (if applicable), a University testing center and Student Health Services until you upload a negative COVID-19 test result from the last 7 days. 

How to upload your test results:

  • Students: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to the secure Student Health Portal. Once you click on the link and login, click on the button "Enter My COVID-19 Test Results." 
  • Employees: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to Employee COVID Testing Submission Form.

If you believe that you received this in error (you have uploaded your vaccination card and/or tested), you should have a retake link on the email message that you received after completing the health check. Please click on the retake link to retake the survey. If the issue persists, please email askit@udel.edu.

You are receiving this message because, based on your survey responses, you are not cleared to access campus today. If you are a current student either living in a residence hall or off campus, contact Student Health Services at 302-831-2226. For all others, we recommend you quarantine/isolate at home and contact a medical professional.

Faculty are not expected to, but they may exercise the option to do so at their discretion. If instructors decide to confirm students’ health screening (Qualtrics green check), they must do so for all students in the class (i.e., do not ask only a few students to show their green check). If faculty exercise the option, students are expected to comply to enter the classroom. When monitoring for green checks, one should make sure that "Authenticated User" is showing and that the date is accurate.

COVID-19 Testing

  • Begin your 10-day Isolation period (10 full days after symptoms begin, or 10 full days after positive test date if asymptomatic). Do not interact with anyone not COVID+ or attend in-person classes, work, parties, public businesses, etc.  You should not share a bedroom or a bathroom with anyone else. Isolation ends on your 11th day and does not require a negative COVID-19 test.
    • If you are vaccinated, you must still isolate for 10 days if you test positive for COVID.
    • If you live anywhere on campus, If you live on-campus, we are asking that you return home to isolate. If returning home is not possible, please reach out to your RA to explore if on-campus spaces are available.
  • Complete the Contact Tracing Form within the Secure Student Health Portal under Forms, and update your address if necessary.
  • If you did not receive your positive result from testing at Harker ISE Lab or Pencader, upload your COVID-19 results into your Secure Student Health Portal  under Medical Clearances, COVID-19 section.
    • Make sure your upload includes your name, date of birth, test date, and test results.
    • Student Health staff will reach out to you via secure message or phone to help establish your isolation dates, discuss any symptoms you may have, and help assist with additional needs.
    • Review the COVID-19 Initial Patient Info Bundle found within the Secure Student Health Portal under Handouts.

COVID-19 is contagious to close contacts (someone who was within 6 feet of you for 15 minutes or more (consecutive or combined in 24 hours), or people that you shared drinks/utensils with, hugged, or kissed).

If you qualify as a “close contact,” please follow the guidance below:

If you are fully vaccinated:

Per the CDC, if you have been fully vaccinated against COVID and you are exposed to someone who is COVID+, you do not need to quarantine unless you develop symptoms.

You should:

- Get a PCR test 3 days after your exposure (at UD Surveillance sites or at Curative sites on campus).

- Monitor for any symptoms for 14 days after your exposure.

- Call Student Health directly for COVID testing if any symptoms develop.

- Wear a mask for 14 days.

- Consider limiting your social interactions for 14 days.

If you have not been fully vaccinated:

- You should quarantine immediately.

- If you live anywhere on campus, please consider returning to your home residence for your quarantine period. If returning home is not possible, please contact your RA or Student Health. Learn more about Quarantine/Isolation for on-campus residents.

- If you have not been notified of your exposure within the Secure Student Health Portal under Secure Messages within 48 hours, call Student Health at 302-831-2226.

- Get tested with a PCR test as soon as you are notified of your exposure, and again 3-5 days after your exposure. Instructions for PCR testing at UD Surveillance while on quarantine will be provided within the Secure Student Health Portal under Secure Messages. The state of Delaware also offers several community PCR testing sites, including Curative testing at various locations around campus.

- Please keep in mind that rapid tests are not FDA-authorized for people without symptoms and have a higher chance of false-negative results.

- Monitor for symptoms every day (fever, chills, body aches, headache, sore throat, cough, congestion, shortness of breath, loss of taste or smell, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea) and call Student Health at 302-831-2226 for evaluation and testing if any symptoms develop.

- Quarantine for 14 full days after your last interaction with the COVID+ individual in order to monitor for symptoms and obtain testing. Do not interact with others or attend in-person classes, work, parties, public businesses, etc. Quarantine ends on your 15th day and does not require a negative COVID-19 test.

- Quarantine Exceptions: If you have had a positive COVID-19 test within the past 90 days or have completed a COVID-19 vaccine series (at least two weeks ago), current guidelines do not recommend quarantining due to an exposure unless you develop new symptoms consistent with COVID-19. While current evidence shows that contracting COVID-19 after full vaccination or within 90 days of a previous COVID-19 infection is unlikely, it is possible.

- You must still monitor yourself for symptoms for 14 days.  If you develop any symptoms, immediately quarantine and contact Student Health as soon as possible.  This is important even if the symptoms are mild.

- You must submit documentation of your prior positive COVID-19 test and/or vaccination. See how to submit documentation at the top of this site.

As a reminder, vaccinated students and staff are exempt from the weekly surveillance testing requirement, but they are welcome to be tested if they wish.

The University will conduct regular COVID-19 testing throughout the semester.

 

The University will use a PCR diagnostic test to detect an active virus. A saliva sample will be collected at the testing site. Samples are identified only by bar codes, so the identity of individuals is not known to laboratory personnel.

No. If you have COVID-19 symptoms, you should self-quarantine. Students should call Student Health Services to discuss their symptoms before visiting in person so that they can be routed most efficiently to receive appropriate care. Others should call their healthcare provider.

 

Because UD is conducting the asymptomatic testing program, results for asymptomatic tests will be available the following day. Symptomatic test results through Student Health Services may have a longer turnaround time. 

If you participate in UD Surveillance testing on campus, you will receive your test results in an email (or accessible on the Student Health Service (SHS) secure health portal) within 24 hours. You do not need to submit results that are provided by the University.

If you participate in off campus testing, timeframes will vary. 

How to upload your off-campus test results:

  • Students: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to the secure Student Health Portal. Once you click on the link and login, click on the button "Enter My COVID-19 Test Results." 
  • Employees: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to Employee COVID Testing Submission Form.

If you participated in on-campus testing and your COVID-19 test is positive, you will be informed by UD medical personnel of your positive test and what steps you need to take for isolation.

If you tested off-campus, results should be uploaded to your health portal.

How to upload your off-campus test results:

  • Students: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to the secure Student Health Portal. Once you click on the link and login, click on the button "Enter My COVID-19 Test Results." 
  • Employees: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to Employee COVID Testing Submission Form.

You will be exempt from surveillance testing until 90 days have passed since your positive test.

When filling out your COVID 19 Daily Health Screening, the questions on the second screen only apply to the two weeks prior to filling it out. Please answer based on your experiences over the course of the previous two weeks.

Testing data will help identify areas where the disease may be circulating and the impact it may be having on certain populations. This will inform decision-making about the status of facilities, programs and other campus operations. It will also help health experts understand and predict the trajectory of the pandemic. 

 

Testing is an integral part of public health practices to keep our community healthy and safe from the coronavirus. UD expects all those invited to participate in the testing program to do so. Testing protocols follow all best practices and laws to protect privacy. Cases of non-compliance may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct (for students), the Provost’s Office (for faculty) or Human Resources (for staff).

 

You may schedule an appointment to be tested. You do not need to receive an invitation to participate in UD-sponsored weekly surveillance testing. 

You will not be billed for participating in UD Surveillance testing held at one of the two UD testing locations; or for being tested at SHS if you schedule an appointment with them because you are symptomatic.

 

All individuals on campus who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination are required to get a COVID-19 test once a week.  It is strongly encouraged that you test at a UD Surveillance testing site; however If you are unable to test on campus, you may seek testing off campus and submit your test results through the secure student health portal: https://www.shsccsd.udel.edu/ Once you click on the link and login, click on the button "Enter My COVID-19 Test Results." 

 

 

If you are unable to attend on campus surveillance testing during the hours provided it is your responsibility to utilize an off campus testing site and upload your results.

How to upload your off-campus test results:

  • Students: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to the secure Student Health Portal. Once you click on the link and login, click on the button "Enter My COVID-19 Test Results." 
  • Employees: If you utilize an off-campus testing site, please upload your results to Employee COVID Testing Submission Form.

It is recommended that you test 5-8 days after your last known exposure. Your recommended testing dates will be written on your quarantine notification from SHS via secure message. If you have questions about when you should test, please reach out to SHS by calling 302-831-2226  during business hours. When you determine a testing date, please let your professional case manager know.

All UD locations and facilities must follow the guidance that we have in place for the University (vaccinations, health and safety precautions, daily health screening, etc.) In terms of the ongoing testing, that service will not be mobile. If an individual on another campus is not vaccinated and therefore must test weekly, they might be asked to come to the main campus in Newark. Those situations will be handled as they arise. Those who are coming onto any campus, or into any UD building, must complete the health questionnaire. Daily health screening and contact tracing will be the norm at all UD facilities.

All students who are selected are required to complete a test according to the Student Guidelines. This is a critical component of our work to monitor the state of the pandemic.  

  • Sanctions will be dependent on various factors and, as such, we are not able to provide definitive outcomes. 

  • Lack of compliance with testing requirements for multiple weeks could result in removal from campus housing.

Vaccinations

Yes, the University has updated its immunization policy to require students to be fully vaccinated by August 15, in advance of campus arrival for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

A copy of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card must be uploaded to the Secure Student Health Portal

  • Login at https://www.shsccsd.udel.edu/ 
  • Select Medical Clearances from the menu.
  • To the right of the COVID-19 clearance, click Update.
  • A window should appear with several form fields. In the COVID-19 Records Upload section, click the Upload button to add a copy of the vaccination card.
  • Go to the Doses of Covid-19 Vaccine section. Enter the vaccination date(s) and the select which vaccine was administered (Pfizer/Moderna/Janssen-J&J). Both doses do not need to be entered at the same time.
  • After verifying that all information in the form is correct, click Done. A Student Health staff person will then be able to view and verify the submitted result.

Exemptions may be granted with appropriate documentation explaining reasons for exemption, including authorized medical or religious purposes.

Students with grounds for exemption from this requirement may visit the Student Health Services website for information on submitting documentation for COVID-19 vaccination exemption.

Students who do not upload proof of vaccination to the Secure Student Health Portal or are granted an exemption by the deadline will have a registration hold placed on their student records.  

At this time, the University is only requiring vaccination for students in advance of the fall semester, although faculty and staff have been highly encouraged to do so and continue to report positive momentum on this front.

The close living arrangements and study and social behaviors of most college students present an elevated risk for continued spread of the coronavirus. In addition, immunizations for measles, mumps, rubella, tuberculosis and meningococcal meningitis have long been required for UD students and not for the average University employee. 

Effective August 15, 2021, all UD employees accessing University facilities are required to either provide proof that they have been fully immunized against COVID-19 or must continue to comply with regular testing protocols (see below). Employees who are vaccinated should provide documentation by August 1, 2021. An online portal to submit this documentation is available here.

If you plan to use any University facility or take part in any UD-sponsored in-person events (RSO meetings, club sports, etc.), yes. 

Any undergraduate or graduate student who will be entirely remote and have no physical contact with any campus or UD community member is exempt from the requirement. 

Yes. The deadline for full immunization for all undergraduate and graduate students is August 15, 2021; a hold will be placed on your registration after that date if you do not provide proof of vaccination or have an approved exemption.  

Goals for a healthy and safe campus rely on as many members of the UD community getting vaccinated as soon as possible. We ask that you get fully immunized before coming to campus; the August 15th date is mandatory for full immunization.

We understand that not all international students will have access to vaccines in their home country, and vaccines are not currently required for travel. Please visit The Center for Global Programs & Services COVID-19 page for more information.  

In addition, Student Health Services can assist with guidance on available vaccine information for international students who are unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccine in their home country when they arrive to campus.

The University of Delaware will recognize vaccines that are approved by the FDA, CDC, State of Delaware, or the World Health Organization. If you have received a vaccine that is not on the approved list, please contact Student Health Services for guidance prior to arrival to campus.  

Yes. This is required of all UD undergraduate and graduate students. 

Due to privacy restrictions, the University cannot disclose the health or vaccination status of any individual student.

All University of Delaware students are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine from the Delaware Division of Public Health. This applies to ALL students, including those who are not permanent residents of Delaware.

All University of Delaware employees are also eligible for vaccination within the State of Delaware. 

Yes. This will continue to ensure that all individuals using campus facilities are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.

For all individuals on campus who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination, you will be required to get a COVID-19 test once a week.  Information is available on the Testing page

The universal wearing of masks is required for all individuals, whether vaccinated or not, in common spaces inside all campus buildings, including classrooms, hallways, laboratories, residence halls, and offices. In dining areas, masks should be worn except when eating or drinking.  Masks are not required inside an individual student’s residence hall room.  Outdoors, all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, should wear a mask OR maintain physical distancing of at least 3 feet from others. 

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is the best source of information about the virus, the disease and the vaccines. The pandemic is a constantly evolving situation, with new information available frequently, so it is important to stay up to date with developments.

Can I attend classes virtually and join in-person after my 2-week post-vaccination waiting period?

OLLI members can virtually attend classes that are offered online without being fully immunized against COVID-19. OLLI members are welcome to join in-person classes after submitting proof of full vaccination. 

 

If I am diagnosed with COVID-19 during the session can I get a refund?

Refunds for OLLI membership and class fees are approved in some instances, generally involving member life events that preclude them from continuing as a participant in the program. Refund requests must be submitted to the OLLI Office during the session for which the refund is requested. Refunds will be prorated and must be approved by the program manager.

 

How will you enforce the vaccination policy?

OLLI staff members will verify vaccination compliance prior to the first day of fall in-person classes using UD Student Health Services data and participant-submitted data. Registered OLLI members who have not provided evidence of vaccination or completed the vaccination exemption process may not attend in-person classes.

The following guidelines apply to the following students: Professional and Continuing Education Noncredit Students, and Continuing Education Non-Degree Students (CEND), Graduate College Non-Degree Students. 

 

Are professional and continuing education students enrolled in noncredit programs required to be vaccinated against COVID-19?

Professional and continuing education students who will participate in in-person UD programs in fall 2021 must be fully immunized against COVID-19.

Contact Tracing

The Delaware Division of Public Health will conduct contact tracing of individuals who test positive for COVID-19. The University will cooperate and may assist the Division of Public Health. 

If you receive a call from (302) 446-4262, or your caller ID says “DE PUBLICHEALTH”, that is a representative from the Delaware Contact Tracing Program calling to give you important information about your health. Please answer the call and take the time to speak with the contact tracers.

 

An individual who has been within 6 feet for a total of 15 minutes or more within 2 days prior to illness onset of a COVID-19 positive individual, regardless of masking status.

More information about Delaware’s contact tracing program is available on the Division of Public Health website.

 

Contact tracing is an integral part of public health practices to keep our community healthy. UD and the state of Delaware expect all those involved in contract tracing to participate fully and respond in a timely manner. According to the Delaware Division of Public Health, those who refuse to participate in contact tracing will be asked by the state to quarantine or self-isolate. The state has the legal authority to pursue a court order to require that person to remain at home, if necessary. 

 

Health and Safety

It is anticipated that UD will achieve high vaccination rates, particularly among residence hall students. To ensure optimal safety, continued safeguards will be necessary.  For vaccinated students, masks are not required within a student’s residence hall floor community unless in a shared community/lounge space and unable to maintain a distance of 3 feet. 

Within one’s residence hall building, it is recommended that vaccinated students wear a mask whenever they leave their immediate residence hall floor community, including building-wide common spaces.  Residential students who are unvaccinated should wear a mask anytime outside of their residence hall room.

 

Stay home when you’re feeling sick. Participate honestly in periodic health screenings. Keep at least 3 feet away from others when possible, both indoors and outdoors. Wear masks or cloth face coverings. Wash/sanitize your hands frequently, cover your cough and practice good personal hygiene.

UD’s facilities and health teams have reviewed ventilation systems throughout the University and took appropriate steps and made updates as necessary. There have been no documented cases of COVID-19 spread through recirculating air in an HVAC system.

The University has created a data dashboard that is updated every day with information about testing, positive cases, daily health checks and more. See the section on COVID-19 Testing in the FAQ on www.udel.edu/coronavirus for specific scenarios.

In general, the following applies:

Positive Test: Individuals who have tested positive for the virus must be in isolation, staying in one room of their home and using their OWN bathroom. If they need to leave their room, they MUST wear a mask.

Exposure to a Positive Case: Next steps for those who have had contact with a positive case differ based on the vaccination status of the person exposed.

Fully vaccinated individuals should get tested 3-5 days after their exposure, even if they do not have symptoms. They should also wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative.

Unvaccinated individuals who have had direct contact with someone who tested positive will be required to quarantine. Quarantine means that they will not report to work or class. They should wear a mask at all times when out of their bedroom.

Potential exposure: Individuals who believe they have been exposed (but are not certain) should self-monitor for 14 days for COVID-19 symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, body aches, loss of smell or taste, diarrhea or abdominal pain.

If you are not cleared to utilize campus facilities as a result of the University of Delaware Daily Health Check, you may order a meal from the dining halls and designate a roommate, friend or UD staff member to pick it up, or you may pick up a pre-packaged meal yourself using designated entrances, per Dining Services’ policy.

 

The University's decisions will be driven by the specific circumstances of a positive case or cases. UD has plans and resources for tracing and the isolation or quarantine of patients.

COVID-19 is a new disease, and there is limited information regarding risk factors. Based on currently available CDC information and clinical expertise, older adults (65 or older) and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. If you need to take extra precautions, requests for accommodations should be made to the Office of Disability Support Services (DSS). 

Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (including cough, fever and shortness of breath) should self-quarantine. Students on campus should call Student Health Services at 302-831-2226 to discuss their symptoms before visiting in person so that they can be routed most efficiently to appropriate care. Students, faculty and staff off campus should call their healthcare provider. 

Yes. The vaccine is still one of the best protections against influenza, and health protocols are designed to minimize the risk of COVID-19 for those getting a flu shot.

The University is relying on all members of our community, as well as visitors to campus, to help protect themselves and others by complying with the State of Delaware’s requirements and UD’s policies regarding face coverings and other measures. If a student is not wearing a face covering in the classroom, faculty members should ask them to wear one or leave the classroom. To anonymously report non-compliance with the requirements, individuals can use the UD Compliance Hotline or the LiveSafe App.

Students will be provided with face coverings, which they should wash regularly. Faculty and staff who do not have their own face covering may contact UD Environmental Health & Safety at 302-831-8475 or dehsafety@udel.edu to obtain one.

Students can contact the Center for Counseling & Student Development at (302) 831-2141 or (302) 831-1001 for after-hours emergencies. Faculty and staff may contact the Employee Assistance Program within Human Resources at (302) 831-2171 and/or their health care provider. 

Yes, hand sanitizer dispensers are strategically located at entrances and exits across the campus, and in other high-traffic areas.

Water systems in buildings have been flushed and tested and are now ready for occupancy. HVAC systems have been inspected to ensure that they meet or exceed recommended CDC guidelines. Airflow in HVAC systems is optimized based on the age of the systems in the respective buildings. The Preventive Maintenance Program also has been optimized to conduct routine filter changes.

Academics

If a student is ill or must stay home due to quarantine restrictions, the student should contact the instructor to work out an arrangement to make up the work. Instructors need to provide assistance to help students keep up with the content of the course. For example, UDIT has enabled all centrally scheduled classrooms to connect to Zoom, including a connection point for an instructor’s laptop to the in-room document camera. Instructors in centrally scheduled classrooms will be able to make Zoom recordings of their class session to post in Canvas or request UD Capture service for their classes.

To ensure compliance with FERPA, Zoom recordings that include the names or images of students in the class should only be shared with students enrolled in the same section of the class. UD Capture does not record student images, only an instructor’s laptop or document camera and audio in the room. As a courtesy, please notify students that your course is being recorded. As an alternative to providing recordings of lectures, instructors could provide copies of their PowerPoint slides and lecture notes.

UD Student Centers, the Library and some classrooms are available either by reserving a space online or by dropping in. As a reminder, masks must be work and physical distancing guidelines followed when using campus facilities.

 

The Student Centers have spaces available either by reserving space via their website or using available common spaces. Common spaces in Perkins Student Center are the Scrounge, East Lounge, West Lounge, lower-level seating, concourse seating, 3rd-floor conference table. Common spaces in Trabant are Daughterty Hall, Trabant Lounge, 2nd-floor seating, the food court and lower-level seating.

 

The Morris Library, using the Reserve a Seat form.

The Office of Academic Enrichment has a webpage with tips for succeeding in online classes. For details on any technology needs, visit Welcome to Tech at UD

For the fall 2021 semester, students may take more than 2 UD online courses per semester without submitting a waiver. 

Standard grading and academic policies are in place for the Fall 2021 semester. 

Yes. Faculty members will be available for office hours. Some faculty will hold in-person office hours for students to meet with them.  Others will hold virtual office hours for their students. Some may have a mixture of in-person and virtual office hours. Whether office hours are in-person or virtual, the office hours are provided as a time when students can ask questions and get help from their instructors. 

 

During your time as a Blue Hen, you may be presented with the opportunity to enroll in online or hybrid classes. 

Synchronous classes are facilitated online, but you still meet “live” with your instructor and classmates during the designated times in your class schedule. Asynchronous classes are facilitated online without a scheduled meeting time with your instructor and classmates. Asynchronous learning allows you to engage with the course materials during times that are most convenient for your schedule. 

In Courses Search, online courses are designated as “ONLINE” in the location details. Synchronous online courses will display the days and times the class will meet; asynchronous classes are designated as “ASYN” in the day details. In WebReg, you will see “ONLINE” in the schedule field if the course is online. Those that are synchronous will have specific days and times listed as well. Those that are asynchronous will state “ASYN ONLINE.” Once registered, synchronous courses will appear in the calendar view. Asynchronous courses will only appear in the list of courses and not on the calendar view.  

 

UD faculty, instructors and teaching assistants have prepared high-quality online courses. While the class experience will be different, UD’s commitment to academic excellence remains as strong as ever. As a major research university, innovation is at our core, and that includes identifying and delivering the most effective learning experiences for our students.

UD has vast experience in running online programs—22 offered fully online—including the highly ranked Lerner MBA and the Biden School’s Master of Public Administration. Our institutional efforts are being led by these seasoned online instructors, as well as faculty who are leading national experts in online teaching effectiveness. 

This fall the majority of classes will be held in person. Although some courses have in-person and online sections, many courses are only available in person. Students who are not comfortable attending class in person should contact their advisor to determine if there are other courses they can take to make progress toward their degree. Students should be aware that some courses are only offered in person due to the learning outcomes of the course. 

Students who need accommodations due to underlying medical conditions or disabilities must work with the Office of Disability Support Services.

 

Starting this fall, more than 100 Blue Hens will travel to 10 countries through UD’s Study Abroad and World Scholars programs. During the winter and spring terms, another 45-plus international education programs will provide more than 500 students with the opportunity to study abroad with UD faculty and international partners.

Yes, students may take up to two consecutive semesters but you must apply for the leave of absence each semester separately. For more information, visit: http://www1.udel.edu/registrar/policies-procedures/withdr-la-timeoff.html. Eligibility for merit aid requires continues enrollment at UD. If a student is approved for a leave of absence, the student would need to appeal to the financial aid office to have their merit aid considered for renewal. If an upperclass student has a guaranteed housing contract and does a leave of absence for the fall semester, then the application is defered to the spring. The student is still bound to the contract and guaranteed for spring housing.

All undergraduate students who apply for admission for Fall 2022 will be considered without submitting SAT or ACT scores. UD graduate programs have a decentralized admissions process, so individual graduate programs have their own admissions and test requirements. All program admissions requirements are available on each individual Graduate Program details webpage, under “Program Admission Requirements”. Please contact the Program contact listed on this webpage to follow up about any testing requirement questions.

Tuition, Fees & Scholarships

While the delivery of courses may be different, the University is committed to maintaining the high quality of instruction that students expect from UD to earn their degree. UD’s distinguished faculty continue to teach these courses, and the course curricula continue to prioritize the learning outcomes that faculty have established. In fact, the cost for online instruction is actually higher, reflecting the expense of computer equipment, software, instructional technology expertise and other needs. UD has invested significantly in education technology over the summer to ensure that students can continue their academic progress and graduate on time; those higher costs are not being passed on to students.

The University’s in-state tuition rate is lower due to the financial support provided by Delaware taxpayers. UD receives an annual operating appropriation from the state of Delaware, most of which is used to reduce the cost of tuition for Delaware-resident students. This is an investment that the state is making in the University every year to support resident students. This is the same tuition model that is used by publicly supported universities nationwide.

The differential fee reflects the significant investment that the University has made and continues to make in faculty expertise, enhanced technology and other resources in those disciplines to optimize student outcomes. Students in those programs continue to benefit from those investments, both during their time at UD and in the labor market after graduation.

Campus Life

Yes, residence halls will be at full capacity for Fall 2021. 

The University does not require post-travel testing. However, you will need to self-quarantine if you had close contact with someone who is COVID-positive.

Shuttle buses will be operate at full capacity for Fall Semester. Visit https://www.udel.edu/udaily/2021/august/buses-to-begin-fall-operating-schedule-aug-30/ for more information. All riders are required to wear masks. Please use the DoubleMap bus tracker to track all active buses. http://udshuttle.doublemap.com/map

Guided and self-guided tours are now available through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Both have limited capacity and require registration—found at udel.edu/visitUD. Virtual tours are also available on the Visit UD page.

Residence hall community members are not permitted to host guests in their residence hall unless they are University of Delaware students. Visitors from outside of the residence hall area are required to wear a mask while outside of their host’s room.  This policy is envisioned to be re-examined in the third week of September and modified based on COVID conditions. Students are limited to 4 guests per residence hall room at any given time. 

 

 

In accordance with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the University of Delaware has updated its policy on the wearing of masks on campus. Effective immediately and as we begin the fall 2021 semester, the universal wearing of masks is required for all individuals, whether vaccinated or not, in common spaces inside all campus buildings, including classrooms, hallways, laboratories, residence halls, and offices. In dining areas, masks should be worn except when eating or drinking.  Masks are not required inside an individual student’s residence hall room. Outdoors, all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, should wear a mask OR maintain physical distancing of at least 3 feet from others. 

Yes, the University has identified spaces for use if a student living in a residence hall needs to be quarantined while awaiting the results of a COVID 19 test; or isolated, if they test positive but do not require medical intervention. More info: https://www.udel.edu/students/reslife/life-in-our-halls/rlh-covid/ 

If the University is required to close due to a COVID outbreak resulting in the closing of the residence halls, necessary account adjustments will be made at that time.

The University is asking off-campus landlords to work with student tenants to find mutually agreeable solutions. Yet ultimately, off-campus landlords do not have to follow the guidance of the University. Because landlords/off-campus housing are separate business entities, you/your student will need to communicate with them directly with concerns.

Residential Dining Halls Pencader Dining Hall, CR (Caesar Rodney Fresh Food Company) and Russell Dining Hall are open featuring dine in or to go options.  Our retail locations include Trabant Food Court, Perkins Student Center and coffee shops and P.O.D. markets are open across campus.  Our retail locations use the Grubhub mobile ordering, so download the app and link your UD One Card before placing your first retail order on campus.  Visit www.udel.edu/dining to find locations, hours of operations, menus, meal plan information, health & wellness, sustainability, contact information, dining FAQs and more.  To stay up to date on you can follow us on instagram @DiningUD.

To help you make a decision on dining options across campus, you can view the occupancy of the Caesar Rodney Fresh Food Company online and Pencader Dining Hall online, as well as near their main entrances. Dining Services has partnered with Density, a real-time people counting solution, to provide this information to the campus community.

All students living in a traditional on-campus residence hall will be required to purchase one of the available on-campus Weekly meal plans and were automatically assigned and billed for the 14 Weekly plan. Students can choose to keep the 14 Weekly or change their plan to another Weekly meal plan. Students who will be living off campus or in University Courtyard, One Easton and family housing are not required to purchase a meal plan, but still have the option to sign up for one. Meal plan add-ons for all meal plan holders will also be available from off-campus partners’ Good Uncle, for food delivery on and off campus, and Home Chef, for cook-at-home meal kits. To learn more about meal plans, you can visit www.udel.edu/dining/mealplans.

Dining Services will have several safe solutions available. Our chefs and registered dietitian are trained and eager to assist with any concerns you may have. You should connect with Debbi Miller, R.D., L.D.N., by email at dml@udel.edu to learn more about the dining options that fit your needs.

Yes, the Student Centers are fully operational this semester.

Athletics & Events

Fall sports are on - please see bluehens.com for more info on schedules, tickets, protocols and more. 

For all external visitors ages 12 and older attending events hosted by the University of Delaware, the University requires that event attendees and participants provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination or a negative PCR coronavirus test taken within 72 hours of the event. “Full vaccination” means that all guests must have received their final COVID-19 vaccine dose at least 14 days in advance of the UD event they are attending. Authentic proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test will be accepted as long as the test was taken within the specified time frame through a medical or accredited company; please note that “at home tests” will not be accepted. Guests can present a paper copy of their vaccination card or negative test results, OR show an electronic copy of their vaccination card or negative test results on their smart phones. Adults will also need to show valid identification matching the vaccination card/test results.

In addition, all event attendees and participants — including UD students, faculty and staff — will need to complete the UD Daily Health Check (covidcheck.udel.edu) and show the green check display reflecting health clearance for venue/community access.

As a reminder, face masks are required at all times while indoors except when consuming food or beverage in designated locations. Prolonged periods of mask removal are not permitted. While children under the age of 12 do not need to provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test for entry, children age 2-12 will be required to wear a face mask while attending any UD event.

Working at UD

Effective August 15, 2021, all UD employees accessing University facilities are required to either provide proof that they have been fully immunized against COVID-19 or must continue to comply with regular testing protocols.

Employees who are vaccinated should provide documentation by August 1, 2021.

An online portal to submit this documentation is available.

For all individuals on campus who have not received a COVID-19 vaccination, effective immediately:

  • Face masks will be required at all times when inside a University facility. Masks are required outdoors when 3 feet of physical distancing is not possible.
  • You will be required to get a COVID-19 test once a week. This summer, the University is offering testing every Wednesday from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. in Clayton Hall. Register here. In addition, community testing is offered on Tuesdays in the Hollingsworth parking lot and on Fridays in Lot #6 on the Laird Campus. Stay tuned for more information pertaining to COVID-19 testing resources in the fall.
  • Additional requirements may be necessary.

To find vaccine locations near you, visit the State of Delaware vaccination site, call 1-800-232-0233 or send a text message to 438829 with your ZIP code in the body of the text message. Additional clinics may be coordinated on campus in the future.

Various units and colleges across the University are finalizing their operation plans for the fall semester. Employees with questions on their work arrangements should consult with their supervisors.

More information is available at: Future of Working at UD website

No, the policy will not change. Supervisors are encouraged to work with their employees to identify flexible work arrangements as needed. 

Yes, the hiring freeze remains in effect until further notice. Exceptions may be appropriate in limited strategic areas, and in support of our principles to support specific critical needs, including safety and academic continuity. Few exceptions will be approved.

UD travel for research, scholarship and creative activities may resume provided UD travelers are fully vaccinated and their travel has been approved (if required) via this online application process prior to departure. Other UD travel remains suspended until further notice.

  • You are “fully vaccinated” when it has been at least two weeks since the second dose of a two-dose vaccine (e.g., Pfizer or Moderna vaccines), or at least two weeks after a single dose vaccine (e.g., Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine). 
  • Travel approval is required when UD employees and students need to use shared/public transportation (e.g., Uber/Lyft, buses, trains, planes) and/or overnight accommodations. Day trips using one’s own vehicle are not subject to this approval process. 
  • UD employees who are approved to travel are encouraged to use Concur for all travel-related bookings and transactions and are responsible for keeping up to date with changing CDC and U.S. Department of State travel guidance.

On May 21, 2021, UD launched Phase 4 of research operations. Phase 4 allows for all on-campus research to be permitted, including undergraduate research, computational research, in-person human subjects research, and extension/outreach activities. No application is required.  Please note that shuttered buildings/facilities need to be approved for reopening before personnel can enter.

We recommend staff bring any food in coolers with ice packs to eat at their desks, in order to cut down on the need for using the refrigerator and being in close proximity. When using shared equipment, employees should wipe it down with appropriate sanitizing wipes following use.

UD is committed to supporting its employees’ overall health and wellbeing and provides all employees and their families a number of benefits to meet the diverse needs.  Consult the resources below to assist in the adjustment to working from home, returning to work, tele-health options, as well as cope with the broader realities of the pandemic, create new family experiences and maintain optimal emotional wellbeing.

No. Effective July 1, 2020, the vacation accrual limits outlined in the Vacation Accrual and Use Policy have been temporarily suspended through December 31, 2022. Eligible employees will be permitted to accrue vacation leave in excess of the limits outlined in the policy. Accrual limits will be restored effective January 1, 2023, and any excess vacation leave for current employees will be forfeited at that time. The accrual limits outlined in the Vacation Accrual and Use Policy will still apply for the purposes of vacation payout upon separation from the University (up to 40 days for employees with 21+ years of service).

Yes. Based on CDC guidance, Custodial Services has returned to its regular cleaning and disinfection protocols. Once the director of a unit notifies Custodial Services that a space is reopening, service will start. Offices will be cleaned weekly, and most public areas and bathrooms will be cleaned daily, Monday through Friday.

Trash removal has been consolidated to minimize person-to-person contact. Trash will be removed from centralized locations. Please contact the Custodial manager for your area for specific details, and review this UDaily article: https://www.udel.edu/udaily/2021/february/trash-removal-protocol-updated/.

Please email fixit@udel.edu and appropriate staff will be assigned to come and take care of the problem.

COVID Alert DE App

COVID Alert DE is a smartphone app that will let users know if they have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. The app supports the efforts of the Delaware Division of Public Health and the University of Delaware to limit the spread of the virus in the community. The app was developed by NearForm, in partnership with the State of Delaware, using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology provided by Apple and Google. 

The COVID Alert DE app notifies users of potential exposure to the virus, even if they are not experiencing symptoms, so they can act quickly and take the steps needed to protect themselves and others.

The simple-to-use app is available to everyone who lives, works or attends college in Delaware. It is available in the App Store and Google Play. The app is free to download and use.

Everyone 18 and older living, working or attending college in Delaware and using an Android or Apple phone is strongly encouraged to download and use COVID Alert DE. The more people who use the COVID Alert DE app, the more effective it is at providing timely information and slowing the spread of COVID-19. 

Several states have similar apps, and more will be launching their apps soon. The apps are expected to be compatible with each other. You should use the app for the state where you are living right now and where you expect to be tested for COVID, if necessary. 

The COVID Alert DE app generates random Bluetooth keys that change every 10 to 20 minutes. Smartphones with the app will share these random keys anonymously if they are in close proximity (within 6 feet for 15 minutes or more). An app user who later tests positive for COVID-19 will be contacted by a public health worker and given a code, which is then entered into the app. The app then alerts all other app users who were in close proximity to that person since the date the positive person was tested for COVID or developed symptoms. No personal information or identifying data is shared. 

Once you’ve downloaded the app, you need to enable exposure notifications so the app can exchange random Bluetooth keys anonymously when you are in close contact with other app users. You don’t need to do anything else unless you receive a positive test for COVID or receive an alert that you may have been in close contact with a COVID-positive person. 

 

No, the app does not track or record your location. It only detects whether you have been in close contact with another person who is also using the app.

 

The COVID Alert DE app does not collect or share any personal information that can identify you, so your identity can never be revealed to anyone. At all times, you are in control and remain anonymous. You decide whether to opt-in to receive alerts, share demographic information or allow app usage data to be collected. You can delete the app or turn off alerts at any time.

 

No. The app does not collect identifying information or the users’ location, so it cannot tell you how you were exposed to the virus. 

 

No. The app does not collect any identifying information or location data that could be used in student conduct cases.  

 

No. The app does not collect any identifying information or location data that could be used in any employment-related disciplinary cases.

 

You can, but it will not replace the University’s daily health questionnaire required for everyone who will be on campus. Students, faculty, staff and visitors who are coming to campus must continue to use UD’s daily health questionnaire to gain access to campus facilities.
