While the fall semester will undoubtedly be different from what any of us expected, we are so excited to welcome many of you home to UCF and to continue to engage with our Knights virtually.
From the opening of the newly renovated Student Union to enjoying innovative programs when the Recreation and Wellness Center reopens, campus operations are ramping up for our Knights returning to campus, while other services will continue to be offered virtually for those learning remotely.
This fall, it will be especially important for each of us — especially those returning to campus — to prioritize the well-being of our community by committing to taking precautions and completing a few extra steps out of consideration for everyone’s health.
One way to help keep you and other Knights safe is by monitoring symptoms and filling out the COVID Self-Checker in the UCF Mobile app. The self-checker will ask basic questions about your location and possible symptoms or exposure, with guidance for next steps depending on your answers.
We ask that any student returning to any UCF campus or university property fill out the self-checker each day. Students not returning to campus are not required to fill out the self-checker, but we strongly encourage you to use it as a tool for monitoring your symptoms and protecting those around you.
Note that personal medical information will never be disclosed through this process.
All students also are expected to complete the COVID-19 Student Return to Campus Training available in Webcourses.
The course will appear on your dashboard when you log in to [email protected] If you do not see the training on your dashboard, click the courses icon in the global navigation menu and click “All Courses.”
The training only takes about 10 minutes to complete, and it shares information about what the return to campus will look like, outlining the policies and guidance students are required to follow. It also includes a guide for having courageous conversations with others close to you about how to agree on behaviors to help keep everyone safe.
Protecting Our Kingdom Pledge
We need all Knights to do their part to ensure the health and well-being of their family, friends, classmates and colleagues. That is why we are asking you to take the voluntary Armor Up Pledge.
The pledge is your commitment to taking care of yourself and the community by being vigilant about your health and following recommended health and safety guidelines.
Our fall on-campus experience depends on all of us doing our part wherever we are to prevent further spread of COVID-19.
Let’s continue to protect our kingdom and Armor Up, Knights!
