ANNOUNCEMENTS AND REMINDERS
Spring Semester Adjustment Requests for High Risk Students Now Available
Students meeting CDC criteria for being at risk of contracting COVID-19 may begin making requests for temporary adjustments for the spring semester using the online COVID-19 student application. Those seeking remote course access should register for online and audio-visual courses to ensure remote participation is available. The request process for spring semester requires documentation of CDC risk criteria from a medical provider, and the deadline to complete requests is Jan. 18, 2021. Contact the Office of Disability Services at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or if the deadline cannot be met due to extenuating circumstances.
Change to Online Directory Monday
Beginning Monday, Nov. 16, the online student and faculty/staff directories will be moved behind the myBama central authentication. Campus community members will use their UA credentials to log in to access the online directory search function. The move supports cybersecurity measures, addresses some privacy issues and helps reduce email spam and phishing attempts. The directory link will remain in the same location on the UA.edu website.
Student Health Center Weekend Hours
The Student Health Center and Pharmacy will be open Saturday Nov. 14, and Sunday, Nov. 15, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. While appointments are not necessary, students are encouraged to call 205-348-0386 before coming to the SHC. Telemedicine visits are encouraged. Students who do have an in-person appointment should arrive at least 20 minutes prior to their appointment. Those who have COVID symptoms will be tested before being seen by a health care provider. The SHC is no longer providing drive-up COVID testing.
Fight COVID-19 with the GuideSafe App
The COVID-19 Exposure Notification App will anonymously notify users if they have been in potential close contact with someone who later reports a positive COVID-19 test result — without sharing the identity of either person. It is a critical component to mitigating the spread of COVID-19.
