Student Online Support

Main page content

Shifting toward teaching and learning remotely can be stressful, especially when the shift happens as quickly as it has had to happen as a result of COVID-19. We acknowledge that both students and instructors may feel anxiety about getting up to speed on how to engage each other in digital spaces. All of us – students, faculty, staff, and administrators – will be learning throughout this process.

We encourage you to enter this process with an open mind. There will be things that don’t go as planned or things that may frustrate you. In these moments, ask for help. Ask for help from your peers, your instructor, and the support teams listed below.  We will continue to update this page to better respond to your needs.
