COVID-19 RESPONSE

Open with Classes On-Campus

Deadline is Jan. 8 to request remote delivery of courses

Posted: January 6, 2021

As we continue to prepare for the resumption of face-to-face classes on Jan. 25, we also want to remind students that they have the ability to request remote delivery. However, the deadline to do so is fast approaching: It is Friday, Jan. 8.

Remote delivery will continue to be available to students for the spring 2021 term for the following reasons only:

  1. Students who physically cannot be on campus due to a diagnosed medical condition that creates a greater risk for she/he contracting the virus.  
  2. Students traveling from a place with a travel ban or restriction.  

Temporary remote delivery will continue to be available to students for the spring 2021 term for the following reason:

  1. Students who are in quarantine and/or isolation will be given temporary remote access to their classes.  

The deadline to request remote delivery is Friday, Jan. 8, 2021. After that date, no requests will be fulfilled unless they qualify as a “life-changing event” such as being diagnosed with a new ailment that makes a student susceptible to COVID-19. If you are approved for remote delivery, you are not permitted on campus, which includes on campus housing, participation in athletics, clubs and organizations. Our experience from the fall semester shows that our classrooms are safe environments. 
Students who are interested in pursuing the option for remote delivery can fill out the online request form found here. If you are requesting remote delivery due to a medical condition, the Health Center will require documentation from your licensed physician. Once the online form is submitted students will be contacted by a university official and instructed with next steps. For questions, email Kathleen Ellwood, director Academic Advising, at ellwood002@gannon.edu
The university will do everything possible to provide remote delivery of your spring 2021 courses. However, due to the nature of some courses, remote delivery is not possible. In this case, your schedule may need to be adjusted.

We will continue to send messages to your email and will post them at update.gannon.edu.
