What does Fall 2020 look like?

In preparation for Fall 2020, a broad-based campus task force was assembled to make important decisions about how UT Permian Basin will open and minimize the risk of COVID-19. The full report can be found here but a summary of those decisions include:

  • UTPB will offer a full selection of courses for Fall 2020. Fall 2020 Course Schedule
  • On-campus face-to-face classes will be offered but with additional safety modifications.
  • Dates for the fall semester remain the same: students will begin classes on August 24 and instruction will continue through December 11.
  • Students will not be required to return to campus after the Thanksgiving break; details for taking finals will be determined by faculty. All instruction after Thanksgiving will be virtual.
  • Remote provisions will be made for students to complete face-to-face courses if during the semester they find they are unable to come to campus.
  • The Residence Life office has announced a new process for housing applications and roommate selection related to COVID-19 safety plans.
  • Student Life office has a new Fall 2020 Events Protocol for all the exciting events to come. 

Daily Symptom Checker

As you return to campus, we are asking everyone who will be physically on campus to use a daily symptom tracker prior to your arrival on campus.  We have partnered with#CampusClear to offer an app. You can download it at the Apple or Google Play store. It's quick and easy to sign up to use. Please click the app each morning and indicate how you're feeling.  There are icons for various symptoms and a "no symptoms" option too. This is a great tool to keep everyone focused on daily health.

Technology Requests

Students who require technology assistance to have a successful fall semester can fill out a Technology Request to indicate their need for a hotspot and/or laptop. Students will be required to complete a user agreement form and show their Student ID at pick up. All rented items must be returned at the end of the semester on Friday, December 11, 2020.
