Fall 2020 Returning to Campus Tips

Return To CampusWe are excitedly preparing for your return to Chicago State and cannot wait to begin the year. As we actively prepare for fall semester, we recognize that this year is different than any before. You’ll find below the latest information on your classes and precautions we are all taking as we prepare for on campus registrations and  classes. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your advisor (phone and email information is here) or join our Student Townhall on August 17 from 2:00 - 3:30 (RSVP here).

High-Quality, Safe In-Person Courses: We have just posted courses that are occurring in-person on the Course Scheduling page. If you do not see a course on that list, it means the class will be taught by your instructor in a fully remote environment. CSU prioritized holding courses in-person that require hands-on learning opportunities, and we will complete all in-person activities before Thanksgiving. For classes occurring in person, we have outlined several precautions including requiring masks, keeping classes small, requiring social distancing in the classroom, and deep cleaning between classes. 

Health & Safety

Let’s keep the Cougar Community safe with these four steps! Complete the COVID -19 training before coming on campus. The training is located in Moodle. Once you complete the quiz, you will receive a certificate of completion. 

Residence Hall

Our residence hall will reopen. We have implemented  necessary safety measures such as: limiting rooms to single-person occupancy, an additional health training, and restrictions on visitors. The resident halls will continue to build community and support learning through its programming.
