Student Expectations for Fall 2022

As a student, Weber State knows you are committed to your education. Part of that commitment will include you doing your part to keep the campus safe and open. Below is guidance to help keep everyone safe based on policies that we hope you will find helpful. The guidance offered is based on current conditions. Requirements, courses and other elements of university services may be revised or suspended at any time as conditions change.

On Campus

  • As you get ready to register for your classes, report your vaccination status on our vaccination form. Reporting your vaccination status informs our university’s planning and mitigation efforts.
  • All individuals need to assess themselves for symptoms of illness before coming to campus and to stay home if they are symptomatic. Visit the WSU COVID-19 website for more information.
  • Masks are welcome on our campuses. Masks are strongly recommended for individuals in areas experiencing substantial or high transmission of COVID.
  • Students needing accommodations should contact Disability Services to discuss your specific situation.
  • For the latest information about campus support service availability, please visit the Keeping Connected website.

Virus Mitigation Protocols

  • Weber State strongly encourages all university faculty and staff to get vaccinated.
  • If you test positive for the coronavirus:
  • If you suspect you have contracted COVID-19 by having symptoms:
    • Immediately go home (unless you are already at home) and self-isolate.
    • Make an appointment to get tested.
    • Complete the self-report form.
    • If not recommended to be tested or if your test is negative, you should follow the guidance provided by your healthcare provider before returning to campus.
  • Engage in good general hygiene practices:
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If a tissue is unavailable, use the inside of your elbow, never your hand.

Technology Requirements

Many class formats will have digital elements (e.g., required online videos, discussion boards, etc.). The technology requirements (computer, software, headphones) for you to fully engage in the class's digital elements should be outlined in the syllabus. Please make sure you have all the technology requirements for this course.

If you log in to a live or recorded lecture in a public space, we recommend using headphones with a built-in microphone. This protects the class content and the privacy of other students in the class. Weber State can offer assistance to students who need to secure technology for courses, including laptop and hotspot checkouts through WSU Computer Labs or the Stewart Library.

Class Recordings

The university has a prohibition against students recording class lectures unless the faculty member grants explicit permission (PPM 6-22.6.6). Any lectures recorded and posted on Canvas or shared to your Weber State University student email are for the exclusive use of students enrolled in the class and may not be shared without previous authorization. Violations will be referred to the Dean of Students for adjudication under PPM 6-22 (Student Code).
