​Frequently Asked Questions
Students 

 What responsiblities do students have in preventing the spread of COVID-19?

  • All students should complete the COVID-19 Student Training Module and take the pledge to participate in reducing the risk of COVID-19 spread on our campuses and in the community. This will take about 10 minutes and will prepare you for new policies and procedures that will be helpful for those studying on campus or at home.

    • Please view this Canvas course using Chrome or Firefox. You will be asked to use your UW-Stevens Point login, then enroll in the course. It includes an instructional video, a pledge form to finalize the course and a list of UW-Stevens Point's COVID-19 online resources. 

  • If reporting to campus in person, before leaving your residence hall or off-campus residence complete UW-Stevens Point's COVID-19 Daily Screening

    • If you have any of these symptoms, please stay in your residence hall or at home! Contact campus Student Health Service by phone at 715-346-4646. You will speak to a nurse who will help determine whether you need an appointment for further evaluation and possible testing for COVID-19 or will provide other medical advice as deemed appropriate. Students who have symptoms may be told to follow these next steps for care: Isolate from others when ill, manage symptoms and other care needs. Either Student Health Service, or your own physician, will provide guidance as applicable. This may include identifying your close contacts and asking them to self-quarantine for 14 days. More information on this process is found at this flow chart.

  • Get tested if needed. COVID-19 testing is available from Student Health Service and other medical providers after hours.

  • Please practice the following on and off campus. What you do off campus matters on campus.

    • If you are not feeling well, stay home. DO NOT go to class or work.
    • Wear your face covering on campus, and off campus whenever it's difficult to maintain physical distancing of six feet.
    • Use your 2 oz. bottle of hand sanitizer. Stations will be available across campuses to refill your container, see this map.
    • Use warm water and soap to wash your hands for 20 seconds, in addition to using hand sanitizer throughout the day – especially after you encounter touch points, such as door handles.
    • Do not touch your face. Cover your mouth when you cough. Sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm.
    • Minimize touching non-personal items. Use your shoulder or elbow to push through doors, and a paper towel or other disposable item to turn doorknobs or push buttons.
    • Assist in wiping down commonly used surfaces after use, such as cooking areas, computers, tools and equipment. Cleaning kits are placed in specific areas, such as residence hall kitchens and meeting, locker and computer spaces.
    • Use water fountains for bottle filling only. Drinking from a fountain is not allowed. Run the water 10 seconds before filling your own bottle. Consider carrying a refillable bottle.
    • Be sure you are getting plenty of rest. Find time to refresh and relax, and try your best to practice patience and thoughtfulness with yourself and others.

  • If you need help, the Student Counseling Center is available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Appointments can be made by calling 715-346-3553. SilverCloud, an online behavior health tool, is also available. Learn more at  https://uwsystem.silvercloudhealth.com/signup.

 What is UW-Stevens Point's face covering policy?

Our most effective protection against coronavirus when around others is a face covering. A face covering protects you against infection from others, and others from infection by you.

Everyone is required to wear a face covering in all UW-Stevens Point buildings, and outdoors when physical distancing is difficult to maintain. Students with conditions that affect their use of a face covering should contact the Disability and Assistive Technology Center (datctr@uwsp.edu, 715-346-3365) to discuss accommodations in classes. Please make your request now to ensure consideration before classes begin.

All students are required to wear face coverings in the classroom and will be asked to put one on before entering. Change your face covering daily with a clean one. No matter what type you wear, take care of your needs. Remove your face covering outdoors when you are not near other people. Take a break in a separate room. Try to find your comfort zones with a face covering. Please be aware, others may have differing needs and requirements for their face covering wear.

For more information on face coverings, go to the CDC website

 If all of my classes are online this fall except for one in-person lab, can I complete all of my work online? Would I have to drop the science course?

Teaching faculty who offer in-person instruction have been directed to have online alternatives for students. Science labs (among other examples) will remain difficult to provide equivalent alternative online experiences.  Nonetheless, we have asked instructors to attempt to do so.  If a student has only a single face-to-face course (e.g., say a lab section) and wishes to move that course online, we'd suggest a couple of issues the student might think about:

1)      The student should reach out the instructor now and inquire what the online opportunities will be for that face-to-face experience.  Again, in some cases an alternative may not be readily available, but the earlier the student connects with the instructor, the more time there is to resolve the issue.

2)      If the student really wants all courses online, and an equivalent online alternative lab or exercise is not available, the student might consider taking the class in another semester (where face-to-face may be more common).

In any case, if a student wants to move all their classes to online, they should discuss the planned online alternatives with the instructor(s) before making any decisions.  

 How can I get my rental textbooks and other course supplies for the fall semester?

STEVENS POINT CAMPUS

In order to provide excellent service to our students while keeping safety as a top priority, the University Store & Text Rental, operated by Barnes & Noble College, will have multiple service options available to obtain fall course materials. 

If you are a UWSP student living in the residence halls and attending the UWSP main campus:

Your rental textbooks will be prepackaged for you to pick up on the day of your scheduled move in. Students should plan to come to Text Rental to pick up their books within 2-3 hours following their scheduled move-in time in their residence hall. This will allow for minimal contact and help to distribute the flow of traffic. Masks are required when visiting the University Store & Text Rental.

If you are a student living off-campus or commuting, the following options are available to you for textbook rental check-out this fall at the UWSP main campus:

Shipping: Students may choose to order their books through the University Store's website and have them shipped to their address. For purchases below $50 there is a $5 shipping fee, purchases $50 and up ship for free. Please note, shipping is the recommended option if you live off campus or commute. To have your books shipped, please visit https://uwsp.bncollege.com and select "find textbooks" under the textbooks tab. You will need your course schedule available to select the courses in which you are enrolled. Once you have entered your course information, click "find materials" to be shown the textbooks for your course. Simply add them to your cart and complete the checkout process. Books listed as "prepaid" are part of our Textbook Rental program and included as part of your tuition. Materials that show a "new" or "used" option with a price are available for purchase and designated as required, recommended, etc. at the direction of your professor. These materials need to be purchased but will be shipped with your rental textbooks. Please allow 5-7 days for shipping to ensure that your course materials arrive prior to the start of your courses. 

In-Person Pick-Up: The University Store & Text Rental will offer additional store hours to provide in-person service while accommodating for occupancy restrictions. Students picking up their books in-person will need to bring their student ID and either their course schedule or their book list, which can be found on the UWSP AccessPoint system. Textbooks will only be prepackaged for students living in the residence halls. Those not living in the halls who choose to pick up their books in-person will need to shop for their books on the shelves. Masks are required and social distancing must be observed. 

The University Store & Text Rental will be open the following hours:

        August 3-21: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

 How do I return my summer 2020 textbooks to the UWSP main campus?

For your health and safety and ours, we ask that summer books are returned through the mail. USPS offers a budget friendly media mail option, though any carrier can be used. Those wishing to return their books in person will be able to do so via a contact-free self-check-in option set up in the University Store & Text Rental during our business hours (see information in previous question).

 What COVID-19 safety precautions has the UWSP main campus University Store & Text Rental put into place to ensure the safety of the campus community?

The health and safety of our guests and staff are our top priority as we work to ensure our students are prepared for the fall semester with all their necessary books and supplies. The following safety precautions are in place to protect our staff and students:

  • Masks are required for both staff and customers
  • Staff will be monitoring the number of guests in the store at all times and limiting that number based on campus recommendations and social distancing
  • Frequent cleaning of all high contact areas, including but not limited to service counters, card readers and door handles
  • Hand sanitizing stations throughout the store
  • Designated entry and exit doors
  • Markings on the floor to direct traffic and maintain social distancing in lines
  • Sneeze guards at registers
  • Free shipping to encourage students to order books online and limit traffic in store, as well as to service those students taking courses remotely
  • Extended hours to accommodate for limited store occupancy restrictions

 Why is there a distance education fee?

The distance education fee isn't new, as UW-Stevens Point has charged a distance education fee for several years now. The fee was $50 per credit for all fully online courses. That fee has always applied to fully online courses regardless of whether the student was living on campus or not. 

The fee helps cover the cost of instructional design, instructor training, technology needs and support, as well as other instructional resource support for students in online programs that regular tuition does not cover. This includes:

  • Salaries for two instructional designers and our technology expert who manages the online learning platform, which we call CANVAS.

  • Wages for student workers who work with professors to design good online courses

  • Professional development for faculty who are designing quality online courses 

  • Captioning services for online courses

  • An online test-proctoring service

  • The addition of several more online library resources

  • Special technology, software and licensing fees that we're required to purchase for faculty to use to create online learning materials

With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are more fully online courses than usual. The university reduced this fee from $50 per credit to $25 per credit, as we understand that students did not have a choice in enrolling in online classes. UW-Stevens Point has no intention of making additional revenue because of the pandemic. Instead, we lowered the fee so that we can continue to balance the revenue we generate with the actual expenses we need to pay to support online learning. Unfortunately, online learning is not less expensive than in-person courses.

 Will tuition or segregated fees be reduced/refunded this fall?

According to the UW System, whether we provide online, hybrid, or in-person classes, we will continue to deliver a high-quality learning experience for our students in accordance with the tuition set by the legislature. 

Also per the UW System, there are no across-the-board plans to refund segregated fees, as there continue to be structural costs required to maintain fee-funded student services and facilities, including health care and child care, student organizations and fixed costs such as building construction.

 How can I cancel my parking permit for fall 2020 if I stay home/take online courses?

The current policy states:

Prior to August 14 permit mailing date:  If students want to cancel their permits they can send an email to parking services with their name, student ID and a brief message stating why they want to cancel.  This email will prompt us to issue the refund.

After August 14 permit mailing date:  If permits have been mailed, the students can send an email to parking services requesting a refund.  We will send them a Return Permit Form for them to complete and send back with the physical permit.  Once we receive the permit back, we will issue the refund based on the following refund schedule:

  • Permit returned within the first two weeks of semester - 100% refund

  • Permit returned in the third and fourth weeks of semester - 50% refund

  • Permit returned in the fifth week through the end of 1st semester - 40% refund

 Will fitness and recreation programs be available this fall?

A variety of fitness and recreation programs will be available, including the Aquatics Center, Climbing Wall, Group Fitness, Allen Fitness Center, Intramurals, Open Rec and more. Visit uwsp.edu/fitrec for the most up-to-date information.

 Will fitness centers on campus be open this fall?

The Allen Fitness Center is open, with restrictions. Visit https://www.uwsp.edu/centers/healthwellness/Pages/Allen_Fitness_Center/About.aspx for hours and more details. Champions Hall Fitness Center is limiting membership to student-athletes and Athletics staff for the 2020-2021 academic year.

 Are placement tests canceled?

UW-Stevens Point remains committed to ensuring a seamless new-student registration experience as we persist through social-distancing challenges presented by COVID-19. All of these important discussions are had with you in mind.

The UW System placement testing has been disrupted this spring, and we want to provide peace of mind during these difficult times.  After several conversations with the appropriate academic departments, we have decided to offer an alternative option for placement exams.  As you know, placement exams serve as a mechanism to accurately determine appropriate Math, English, and Foreign Language courses for each student, but placement testing cancellations may prohibit some students from taking exams before fall registration.  

For students unable to take placement tests, and with your health and safety in mind, UW-Stevens Point is suspending the required Math, English, and Foreign Language placement exam and will instead be using a combination of the ACT/SAT sub-scores and high school grades as an alternative mechanism for placement.  The UW System Center for Placement Testing is exploring alternative online testing options, and if you are planning to utilize this choice, we encourage you to check their website for updates: https://exams.wisc.edu/placement/regionaltesting/information.php.

The Office of Admissions and Recruitment will be sharing more information as we develop these measures. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out.

Residence Halls/Dining

 How will COVID-19 affect residential living and dining policies and procedures for fall?

Residential Living

  • Residential Living employees and students living on campus can enter residence halls, but off-campus students and visitors are not allowed. See the front desk receptionist in your building for more information. Think about fun places to meet your friends elsewhere on campus. In residence halls, spaces are marked for available sinks and bathroom stall spaces. 
  • Find COVID-19 updates regarding Residential Living here.

Dining

  • Students will wear a face covering when arriving in all UW-Stevens Point Dining facilities. Please sanitize your hands on entering and before you eat. All foods will be served to order or packaged.  Avoid touch points along the way. All sales are cashless. Green on the Go containers are available as part of our Sustainable Dining Program. Upper DeBot and the DUC Food Court will have limited dine-in seating available. Please be considerate of others and use dining spaces for meals only, not other activity. 
  • Find Dining and Summer Conferences COVID-19 updates here

**All students are encouraged to check their UW-Stevens Point email and Housing Portal daily for updates.**

 Can I leave my belongings in my Residential Hall room when I leave at Thanksgiving or am I required to take them with me?

  • If students have spring housing, they can keep their belongings in their room
    • Students will need to follow a simple break check-out process that includes turning off room lights, turning on heat, taking out garbage, etc. (if they are leaving campus for extended periods of time during the break)
    • Students should take belongings that they will need for the extended time away from the residence halls 
    • There will be a registration process for students staying during this time 
      • More details about the registration process will be sent to their UWSP email in late October/early November regarding break registration
  • Students who do not have spring housing and who will be moving out will need to arrange a check-out time following our check-out process 
    • More details will be sent to the student's UWSP email in late October/early November regarding that process. 

 If I cancel my fall housing contract, could I still live on campus in the spring if we return to in-person classes?

Students can live on campus during the spring semester, even if they canceled their housing contract for the 2020-21 academic school year. The application process to apply for spring housing will not be available until later in the fall semester. 

 ‭(Hidden)‬ Why are The Suites the main residence for students staying at UW-Stevens Point for the semester?

The decision to move all students staying in the residence halls to The Suites@201 Reserve was made in direct consultation with the medical director of Student Health Service and the Portage County Division of Public Health, with additional guidance from the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the CDC and UW System.

The Suites are the safest option for a number of reasons:

  • With fewer students living on campus, each suite will house two or three students rather than the usual four. Each apartment offers residents their own bedroom, as well as a bathroom shared by only two students rather than sharing a bathroom with a full floor as in the traditional residence halls.
    • Similar recommendations are made for ill people living in the community who need to self-isolate in their home to limit people sharing bathroom spaces.
  • If a student reaches out to Student Health Service to say they are not feeling well, it is easier and safer to have the student self-isolate in a suite as there are no shared bathroom or other facilities. We would then begin delivering food to the student(s) in the suite and arrange to check in daily.
  • Dining remains open so students won't need to be in the suite common area/kitchen if they don't want to be. Students simply pick up a meal or have it delivered if isolating.
  • Having students in one residence hall allows for a reduced number of custodial staff to concentrate their efforts in one location to make sure all public spaces are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized daily.
    • Custodians will provide, and restock as needed, six cleaning kits in each floor lounge for students to regularly clean their suite. This kit will include:
      • Oxyvir spray (effective against coronavirus)
      • Glass cleaner
      • Paper towels
      • gloves
      • Instructions on how to use these materials daily for shared spaces, such as doorknobs, bathroom sinks, counters, toilets, and kitchen areas.
    • Four vacuums will be available for each floor
    • A hand sanitizer stand will be available in each floor lounge
    • Custodial staff will daily clean all common areas including public restrooms, stairwells, elevators, laundry room, computer lab and lounge areas. All touch points will be wiped down daily.
    • Clorox 360, a special disinfectant, will be used in all public areas once a week in addition to the daily cleaning.
    • Health information will be posted in each suite about self-care, cleaning and how to contact Student Health Service, which remains available to all our enrolled students.

 ‭(Hidden)‬ How can I get mail that is sent to my residence hall address?

Please change your permanent address in accesSPoint. Only first-class mail will be forwarded. It may take several days for mail to be forwarded to you. You should also contact delivery companies (UPS, FedEx, etc.) to change the delivery location of items ordered. 

​Student Resources

 Where can students get virtual resources?

Students can get additional resources for the Student Affairs virtual webpage, here

 Who can students contact to get additional questions answered?

To get additional questions answered, contact UW-Stevens Point's Dean of Students at 715-346-2611 or at DOS@uwsp.edu.

 What support can students find through University College?

As we prepare for a physically distanced semester, the units in University College are here to support faculty and students. We’re taking a uniform approach to services across all areas, whether it be student support through Academic and Career Advising, Disability and Assistive Technology, International Education, Tutoring-Learning Center, the Libraries or CITL. Here are a few important points for you to know:

All one-on-one appointments will be held virtually
Whether it’s a tutor, an advisor, an instructional designer, or librarian, all appointments will be held via Zoom. Students and faculty on every campus can easily access online services through our websites or the Navigate app.

The buildings will be open and staffed
We will be taking walk-in traffic on all campuses during normal business hours. Staff will be on hand to guide those who need help in person. Albertson Hall and library services are open starting August 10, with all offices having an in-person presence starting August 24. All meeting rooms, including ALB 650, are closed. Branch campus solution centers are open.

We are open for virtual class participation
There are areas throughout Albertson Hall and in the branch libraries where students can attend and participate in class. The libraries created this webpage with locations that best lend themselves to virtual classroom attendance.

Changes to testing
We have two changes to our services related to testing:

  • First, in order to reduce touch points, we are strongly encouraging faculty to use Canvas for tests instead of scantron sheets. Please email CITL if you intend to use scanned tests.
     
  • Second, online testing better supports students with extended time and reduced distraction accommodations. If an online test is not feasible, please contact Disability and Assistive Technology if one of your students has an accommodation. We have reduced capacity to support in-person testing due to distancing requirements, but will do our best to facilitate test accommodations if the faculty member cannot.

If you are working with online tests, we have a new tool called Honorlock for online exam proctoring. Contact CITL for more information.

Contact us if you need anything
As always, we are here to connect, support, engage, and serve the UWSP community. Please contact our individual offices or Dean Gretel Stock if you need assistance.

 How can student organization leaders find support for operating during the pandemic?

Student organization leaders can find support here for virtual meeting resources and to learn how to use SPIN for many tasks, including creating events, sharing documents, creating polls, running elections and managing rosters and finances, among others.

Find more at the Campus Activities and Student Engagement (CASE) website.

 How do I request emergency financial assistance?

Students may apply for an emergency grant via the UWSP CARES Act Emergency Funds Application. Students at UW-Stevens Point campuses in Marshfield and Wausau may apply through this branch campus process. The Office of the Dean of Students administers these grants.

To apply for an individual Emergency Grant, students must complete the brief application form stating that they experienced financial expenses as a result of the disruption of campus operations, and identifying the category of allowable cost incurred; initial individual applications are reviewed by the Office of the Dean of Students with Title IV eligibility determined by the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Dean of Students staff still will explore other assistance options for students who are not eligible for CARES Act funding.

 How much has UWSP given to students in emergency funds so far?

On May 1, 2020, UW-Stevens Point disbursed $2,088,550 to the 5,182 students who met the eligibility requirements to receive funding under Section 484 of Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended). These emergency funds are provided as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to students in order to assist with personal expenses (such as technology, food, housing and educational materials) as a result of the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19.

As of May 8, 2020, 95 eligible students received individual UWSP Emergency Grants, totaling $46,360.

For more, see the full reporting page.
