Quick Facts

Learning Remotely

Students rated their online courses in the spring as equal to their face-to-face classes the prior fall, which says a lot about the intention and effort that faculty have put into moving their courses online.

This workshop was shared with new students and their families in August 2020 to orient them to Seattle University's high-quality virtual courses and the training and support behind every instructor.

A key feature of this workshop was a walkthrough of an online class taught during the summer, "The Mathematics of Epidemics." This class offers an example of the rich array of instructional methods, engagement, and learning that can take place in virtual classes. The class walkthrough begins at 18.40.

There are study spaces available in Lemieux Library and Learning Commons on all library floors including group study rooms. 

There are individual study rooms available for online classes on the 4th and 5th floor on a "first come, first served" basis.

We strongly encourage all students to go through Seattle University’s Orientation to Distance Learning. It is full of helpful resources and best practices for academic success and will take about 30 minutes to complete.  

The SU Campus Store has a wide range of headphones and earbuds with mics. Visit their page for the full array of options.

You can find out whether your classes will be online and synchronous, online and asynchronous, hybrid, or in-person by viewing this 2-minute video tutorial.

If you have questions about what hardware, software and internet services you might need, IT Services has some quick links and explanations.

If you are having trouble connecting remotely, the IT Service Desk can answer questions

All online and hybrid classes are taught remotely through Canvas.  Find tutorials for learning remotely in Canvas.

All course packs can be found at SU Campus Store. Go to the SU Campus Store website to order your course materials.  

If you need Canvas help while in Canvas, click the Help icon on the left side navigation bar. Here you will find a link to student-focused Canvas tutorials and a link to chat with the 24/7 Canvas support team. Alternatively, you can call the Canvas Help Desk 24/7 at (844) 668-0893. 

For detailed instructions on how to use Zoom, visit the CDLI Help Center for Student Support on Zoom. You can also call Zoom's 24/7 helpline at (888) 799-0125.

You will see a "Zoom" link in the course navigation bar of your Canvas courses. This is where professors can schedule your class meetings, and where you can find links to attend your remote classes.

There are many different channels for communicating with classmates, including channels in Canvas and video conferencing with Zoom. You can find more information on communicating in Canvas here. You can find student tutorials on Zoom here.

You can connect with your instructor via Canvas, email, or Zoom meeting. Your instructors may have additional communication channels, which you will learn about in your courses. Visit the CDLI Canvas page for more on using Canvas to communicate.

When a course is delivered synchronously, instructors and students gather online at the same time and interact with a “real time” or “near-real time” exchange between instructors and students.

When a course is delivered asynchronously, students do not meet as a class in real-time and faculty prepare learning activities designed to create asynchronous student-instructor interaction.

Most classes will be delivered at a distance at the same time they were originally scheduled to meet (Pacific Daylight Time). If it is no longer possible for you to meet at this time, please contact your faculty member as soon as possible to discuss possible accommodations. 

If you were already registered in a fully online, asynchronous course, then that course should still be fully online and asynchronous.

Before changing your schedule, check in with your professors. They may already have added accommodations for students who are in different time zones or whose lives now make it impossible to attend at the originally scheduled time.

If you find that you can no longer attend a class for which you were previously registered, please reach out to your professional advisor. We do have room in some asynchronous, fully online classes, but you should check with your advisor to ensure that the course works with your graduation plan. You can contact your advisor through the Advising Services. If you don’t know who your advisor is or your program doesn’t have one, please contact the Student Support Center, and we’ll get you in touch with the right person. 

Canvas is also available as a mobile app for Android and iOS. Many tasks in Canvas and most features can be accessed via the mobile app. 

Most of your classes can be completed using technology as simple as a Chromebook, but a few classes may have specialized software or high processing requirements. If you are in doubt, please reach out to your instructor and ask.

Our student support staff has been working diligently to ensure continuity of student services (such as tutoring, advising, disability services, etc.) while we are all teaching and learning remotely. To find out what is available, reach out to the appropriate student support unit through the normal email and phone channels. If you are having trouble figuring this out, contact our Student Support Center above and we will help connect you to the appropriate support unit.

Academic Calendar and Academic Policy Changes

Seattle University will be in a primarily virtual learning format this fall, with some in-person and hybrid classes.

Our plans prioritize the health and safety of all members of our campus community while delivering a highly engaging and impactful educational experience—whether in person or virtually. Together, we will move forward with a special emphasis on caring for one another.

For more in-depth information about what to expect, please visit our fall reopening page

The last day to withdraw from fall classes is Tuesday, Oct. 27. Please check the 2020-2021 academic calendar or the Academic Important Dates 2020-2021 calendar for deadlines for drop/add, and other important deadlines.

This year’s rescheduled Oct. 9-11 commencement festivities have unfortunately been canceled due to a worsening of health conditions in WA and across the country. For details about how 2020 graduates can participate in future ceremonies and receive a diploma cover, view the complete announcement here.

In response to the disruption of COVID-19, we are amending the university grading policy for the 2020 winter, spring, and summer quarters. For each quarter, students will be initially awarded a traditional letter grade. If you are satisfied with the grade, you will not need to take any action.

In some cases, both undergraduate and graduate students will have the opportunity to convert traditional grades to CR/F.

Individual schools and colleges will be determining which courses must receive traditional letter grades. You will find a link to a list of those courses here.

If you do decide to request a grade conversion you will need to fill out a Petition to Change to CR/F grade. You can find the quarter-specific petitions here. The deadline for the winter quarter petition was April 27, 2020. The deadline for the spring and summer quarter petitions is October 26, 2020

If you are considering completing a class Credit/Fail rather than for a letter grade, please discuss the ramifications with your advisor, as it could cause obstacles for your future plans.

Please remember you still need to be registered full-time to maintain status.

As of August 1, 2020, under the current temporary rule, if fall is your first term in F-1 status in the United States, you should be taking at least one course that has an in-person component.  If you are outside the U.S., you can be fully online.  Please check with the International Student Center (ISC) for your specific requirements.

If you are wanting to be seen by a healthcare provider, do not show up at a clinic, urgent care or another health facility without calling first, as providers need to take special measures to protect other patients. Telemedicine may also be is often available through your health insurance provider, enabling you to consult a provider from home. Do not go to an emergency room, as emergency room staff need to be able to serve those with the most critical needs. If you are experiencing significant problems breathing call 911.

Please call the SHC before going into the clinic.

The Student Health Center is primarily offering telehealth visits but some visits will require an in-person visit. If you are in Washington you can call the SHC to see what would be needed to address your concerns. Unfortunately, if you are outside of Washington state the SHC is limited because the healthcare providers are not allowed to practice outside of their state of licensure, which is Washington for all the nurse practitioners.

If you are outside of Washington we recommend reviewing your telemedicine options through your health insurance first. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most insurance carriers have increased access and decreased cost for this service.

The Student Health Center has the ability to test students but has limited test kits. Testing will be prioritized for students who are symptomatic for COVID at this time. There are other community resources available for COVID testing as well. If you think you need a test please call the Student Health Center at 206-296-6300.

Students, faculty, and staff, who have been diagnosed, tested, or suspected to have COVID-19, are asked to please notify Seattle University Public Safety as soon as possible by sending an email to covid-19-report@seattleu.edu or by calling at 206-296-5990

Our thoughts are with all of those who are currently relocating to safer areas and will soon embark on a long and difficult road to recovery. 

For students and their families who are impacted by wildfires, there are several support resources available at Seattle University, including: 

Housing & Residence Life (206-296-6305)
https://www.seattleu.edu/housing/

For those who may need to remain in campus housing over break periods/return early due to displacement, please call Housing & Residence Life to make arrangements. Your building Area Coordinator, Assistant Area Coordinator, and RAs are great resources for additional support and care throughout the year.

Campus Ministry (206-296-6075)
https://www.seattleu.edu/campus-ministry/

Campus Ministry provides an open and hospitable community to gather in friendship, conversation, discernment, and understanding of what one’s purpose is in life, regardless of one’s faith background. You can access support through Campus Ministry by calling 206-296-6075.  

Counseling & Psychological Services (206-296-6090)

CAPS provides group and individual psychotherapy for students and referral services for those requiring specialized longer-term care (note that currently, Counseling & Psychological Services can currently serve in-state students through telemedicine only. Referrals for out-of-state students to providers in their local areas are also available). These services are provided free of charge to enrolled students. Visit the Counseling & Psychological Services website or call 206-296-6090 for more information. All clinical services are confidential.

Student Success & Outreach provides resources, spaces, and programs for all students, and especially adult learners, first-generation students, graduate students, students who commute, students who transfer to Seattle U, and veterans. The Outreach Center can also assist in identifying off-campus sources of support for food, transportation, and other basic needs. We acknowledge and affirm our community’s multiple intersecting identities, including low-income, international, undocumented and DACA, and graduate students. Visit the Student Success and Outreach website or call 206-296-6333 for more information. 

Office of the Dean of Students (206-296-6060)
https://www.seattleu.edu/deanofstudents/

The Office of the Dean of Students is available to offer support and to help students identify on- or off-campus resources that may be helpful during this difficult time. Limited financial assistance may be available for those needing to replace basic school supplies, personal care items, identification cards, and other smaller items. For students who may need to miss classes as a result of these events, the Office of the Dean of Students can help to facilitate communication with your college and faculty. Call 206-296-6060 to schedule a meeting.

Our thoughts are with all of those affected by the wildfires and we hope that you and your families are safe. Please let us know how we can help and support you during this difficult time. 

Students will get their meals at the Cherry Street Market in the Student Center. Daily menus can be found at the Redhawk Dining website. Daily hours and station option hours can be found here.

Residential students who are here on campus during the stay-at-home order should expect limited campus and residence hall services during this time. Facilities Services will continue to frequently clean and disinfect common areas and high-touch surfaces across campus. Housing & Residence Life has posted contact information at each residence hall desk and sent an email with this contact information to all residential students last week. While staff are available to assist with lockouts and emergencies, they continue to operate following social distancing recommendations at all times. Residents can also call the Department of Public Safety for assistance at any time by calling (206) 296-5990 (non-emergencies) or (206) 296-5911 (emergencies).

Based on the updated guidance and our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, visitors and guests are prohibited in university-owned/leased/managed residence halls at all times. This includes non-affiliate visitors/guests, other SU students who live off-campus, as well as visitors/guests from other residence halls.  The prohibition on all visitors/guests applies to all resident rooms/apartments, lobbies, lounges, and other common areas of the residence halls. See here for more information.

Anyone who identifies themselves in these higher-risk categories should strongly consider not staying on campus. If you are a student who needs to live on campus, then it is important for you to be located in a single room with your own bathroom and kitchen. If that is not your current housing situation, please notify the Student Health Center and they can share your need for a private room without sharing any details of your health history with Housing & Residence Life. The Student Health Center can be notified by email at studenthealthcenter@seattleu.edu or by phone at 206-296-6245. If you’re not sure what is considered a high-risk condition, please see here.

We are asking all students to take proactive steps to prevent the spread of illness. These include taking the following precautions:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If hand washing facilities are not available, use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content
  • Keep your germs to yourself
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing, then throw out the used tissue
  • Avoid sharing personal items like drinking glasses, eating utensils, and towels with other people
  • Get an adequate amount of sleep and don’t forget to exercise

Stay Home! With the Stay Home – Stay Healthy order from Gov. Jay Inslee, everyone, even those who are young and healthy, must stay home to slow the spread of this virus. You should:

  • Stay at home and avoid all non-essential contact with others
  • Limit trips for groceries, gas and other essentials only
  • If you must go out, stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times
  • Do not gather in lobbies, lounges, corridors, or other common areas
  • Students should not enter another student’s building, hall, housing unit, or bedroom. Remember that visitors/guests are now prohibited at all times
  • Use cell phones and online video conferencing to stay in touch with your residential community
  • Keep moving: walk, run, roll, bike, or engage in other outdoor activities while maintaining a six-foot distance from one another

We ask all students who remain on campus to engage in daily self-monitoring for symptoms of COVID-19 and to inform the university if they are experiencing any symptoms so that we may assist where possible. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (fever of 100.4°F or above, cough [not chronic], and shortness of breath), or are awaiting or have received a COVID-19 test result) please send a self-report sent to Covid-19-Report@seattleu.edu

Visit the Office of the Dean of Students for recent communications regarding housing and student expectations.

We are open and here to help, but please note that we are working remotely at this time.  Please send any questions or concerns to housing@seattleu.edu and include your contact information so we can respond to your questions as soon as possible. You can also reach out to your building Area Coordinator for assistance.

 

Fantastic, have a great quarter, Redhawks!
