Please reach out to your instructor for guidance on how lab, field experience, and community engage learning activities will be handled after the transition to the online mode of course delivery.  Please remember that accommodations will be made so that you can complete the course.

The move to online instruction does not affect student employment. You will be able to come to campus for work.  If that would present a hardship or if you are concerned about being on campus, talk to your supervisor to see if they will allow temporary telecommuting.

Yes, advisors will still be available for appointments, both virtually and by phone. You can book appointments onlineIf you have an appointment that is already scheduled for an on-campus location, contact your advisor via email to set up a virtual or phone appointment. You can find advisor’s emails at the page linked above.

Should you opt for a phone appointment, please have your FERPA pin set up prior to the meeting start time. Find information about setting a FERPA pin here.

Contacting advisors via email is always the best way to get your questions answered. In addition to advisor’s individual emails, many CSBS majors also have general major advising emails; this is often the quickest way to get an answer and can also be helpful if you are not working with one specific advisor. Please keep in mind that for any email correspondence, it may take advisors up to 2 business days to respond, and advisors will be checking their email during our normal office hours of 8:00-5:00.

  1. Contact your internship site supervisor and check in about the organization’s plans and/or status on COVID-19 prevention.
  2. If you have a comprised immune system, have concerns you have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, or you feel overly anxious about exposure, remote work may be possible. Inquire with your supervisor about projects, data analysis, research, or marketing/communications goals you can complete for the remainder of the semester while working from a home-based office.
  3. If you are unable to shift to remote work, and your internship site remains open, the decision is yours. Again, if you have a comprised immune system, have concerns you have come into contact with someone with COVID-19, or you feel overly anxious about exposure, let your supervisor know you are unable to continue your internship for this semester. Contact your internship coordinator if you need assistance: dominique.blanc@csbs.utah.edu
  4. If you are unable to complete your internship hours by the end of semester, or if you are worried you may not be able to complete your hours, contact the professor of your course as soon as possible; alternative assignments will be offered in lieu of hour requirements as long as you  on track with your hours for the semester. If you are behind on hours, you may have to accept an “I” grade and complete the hours in the future. If you are not sure who your professor is, contact your internship coordinator at dominique.blanc@csbs.utah.edu.
  5. Once you have established a plan to move forward, contact the professor of your course and give them an update. If you have questions, ask your professor and/or contact your internship coordinator at dominique.blanc@csbs.utah.edu. We are here to help!
If you have any questions or concerns, email your internship coordinator at dominique.blanc@csbs.utah.edu.
