COVID Safe Policies
The university has new designations for course delivery – what do these mean? How does this impact DPAP course delivery?
a. All DPAP regularly scheduled online classes will remain the same and not impacted.
b. All DPAP face-to-face classes will be offered in-person or for students to attend via robot one night per week.
c. Other departments/programs across campus may use one of the following approaches for Fall 2021:
i. Remote (meet for class via Zoom during a set time/day) or hyflex, we are not offering these options.
Due to the changes in the UM academic calendar, will the department offer winter session courses?
Do I need to wear a facemask for in-person sessions?
b. Masks are recommended to be worn if you are not vaccinated.
What if I get sick or I am in contact with someone exposed to COVID-19?
How do I make up my work if I am impacted by COVID-19? [for all students]
a. Your professor will provide options for you to receive missing material (e.g. send PPT slides or recording of lecture). Make sure to notify your professor in advance. We realize this may occur periodically throughout the semester.
b. If your illness persists, you will set up an appointment with the department associate dean to come up with a plan of action to successfully complete the semester.
What if I don't feel comfortable taking an in-person class this fall?
Will internship opportunities be impacted?
How do I get in/out of the School of Law?
b. In preparation, make sure to obtain a UM Griz Card.
c. If you forget your Griz Card, call Campus Safety to let you into the building.
