How do my instructors know I have to isolate?
Once you report your communicable disease by contacting Boise State Public Health, they will notify your instructors if, because of COVID-19 or another communicable disease, you are unable to be in-person and on campus. No medical information will be shared with them and any absences accrued during the time period you are asked to stay away from campus will be excused. This doesn’t excuse you from completing any missed work during this time. It is important that you keep in touch with your instructors when you are able so they can help you get back on track.
What is expected of me for my in-person classes if I can’t attend them?
Continue working on your classes remotely to the extent that you are able to do so. Ask your instructor what remote options are available to virtually attend class or for alternative ways you can complete your coursework.

I'm having difficulties writing, reading, focusing, or retaining information for class.
I’m wondering if I should go home. Can I just continue my classes remotely during my infectious period?
Check in with your instructors to see what options are available and the impacts of you leaving. If you are living in campus housing, please make sure you contact Boise State Public Health at firstname.lastname@example.org or (208) 426-2928 to coordinate.
I need to withdraw from one or all of my classes.
Your ability to withdraw will depend on how far along the semester or course session has progressed. You may be able to drop classes on your own, or you may need to request this. Learn more about dropping courses here. If you’re unsure about withdrawing from classes, contact your academic advisor to review your options and their academic and financial impacts.
