Students required to quarantine can get help from RIT
RIT can help with accommodation arrangements—and in some cases offer financial support—for those students who are arriving from locations on the New York State Travel Advisory list or from outside of the United States and need to quarantine prior to coming to campus.
As the university gears up for in-person and online classes—or a combination of both— faculty members are applying a wide range of lessons learned from the spring to keep academic momentum moving forward.
Meanwhile, to accommodate and support student learning, RIT is offering a Flex option— a blend of in-person and online instruction— for some courses. Students can choose to complete all course requirements online either for the entire semester or as needed throughout the semester.
Testing the waters
RIT will be testing wastewater from dormitories and other highly used buildings on campus, a method proven effective for uncovering what might be undetected cases of COVID-19.
Following the rules will help keep our campus safe
We all play a role in keeping our RIT community healthy and safe against the spread of COVID-19. To help, RIT has put a number of procedures in place.
Employees must fulfill several requirements—including getting a test—before returning to campus. Even those working remotely must follow certain rules. We share some resources.
And today, RIT is launching a new process. The COVID-19 Violation Report can be used to report perceived concerns regarding students, employees, visitors, and campus facilities, such as inappropriate use of face coverings, physical distancing concerns, and noncompliance with quarantine requirements.
