Welcome back to a new semester at the iSchool! As we return to campus this fall, here are some resources and information to help us #ProtectTexasTogether. Thank you all for doing your part in keeping our community safe.
Student Testing and Reduced Classroom Density
For the safety of our community, the university has determined that all students coming to campus for the fall semester must receive a viral test (antigen test or a nucleic acid amplification test such as PCR). NOTE: The deadline to upload test results has been extended to Friday, August 27. Read the FAQs about COVID-19 testing on the University Health Services website for more information about the testing requirements.
The university has decided to allow some professors to make temporary adjustments to their classes to reduce density through September 17. These adjustments will not affect every class, but some classes may ask that students join in person once per week and participate remotely the other days or some classes may move online completely until September 17. Professors will communicate any adjustments to students directly. As always, students will be expected to meet the requirements of the classes as stated in course syllabi.
UT Vaccine Incentive Program
We encourage all iSchool students, faculty and staff members to get vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines are our best tool to help us #ProtectTexasTogether. UT is celebrating students, faculty and staff who have chosen to take this important step with drawings to win great prizes like cash, unique experiences, and more!
