Other Information / Resources
Question: What if I need to see or speak with my professor?
Answer: Faculty will continue to have regular office hours, remotely. This could be a phone call, WebEx, or other tool that you and your professor agree on.
Question: I have been getting tutoring support, how can I continue to meet with my tutor?
Answer: Please contact the Center for Academic Programs to ask them how you can continue your tutoring remotely. Email email@example.com or Phone 860.486.4040.
Question: What if I have non-classroom classes, such as labs or clinical or field based?
Answer: Some parts of the lab may be moved online, such as video demonstrations of new techniques, online simulations, data analysis, or pre/post lab work. There may be other online resources that can help you replicate the lab experience. Talk with your professor to learn more.
Question: What do I do if I don’t have access to the Internet or don’t have a computer?
Answer: If you have a computer but do not have access to the Internet at home, and you are comfortable going to the public library or a Starbucks, you can connect at either location. Similarly, if you don’t have a computer, the public library has computers available for your use. If neither of these solutions work for you, notify your professor that you cannot access online materials.
