Information for Students

The health and well-being of our campus community is the University’s top priority. We continue to carefully monitor the COVID-19 Coronavirus, and now, with reported cases in Oklahoma, we urge you to follow the below recommendations.

Protect Yourself from Becoming Infected

The most important precaution all of us can take is being mindful of our personal health by practicing good hygiene, such as washing hands frequently. We continue to follow guidance from the CDC and state and local health authorities and encourage everyone to take reasonable, common-sense measures to keep yourself healthy.

What to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms

If you begin to experience symptoms that could be consistent with COVID-19 such as fever (temp ≥ 100.4˚ F), chills, cough, shortness of breath, body aches, and/or extreme fatigue please remain home and contact your campus health clinic for further guidance regarding restrictions to return to campus. Please contact your primary care provider with any personal medical questions and for guidance concerning your specific symptoms.You should not attend class until your symptoms resolve or you are cleared by a medical provider. If you miss class, you must comply with the course syllabi and should contact the faculty members as soon as possible to make arrangements for your missed work. You should assume that all due dates and course requirements still apply. Students on off-campus rotations must follow the normal procedures for reporting absences.
