Effective Monday, September 12. The University is implementing these reentry changes to align with new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on testing, vaccinations and quarantine periods.

What Is the Campus Safety Protocol?

  • Vaccines/Testing are no longer required for students, employees or visitors to enter campus.
  • Daily Health Screening must be completed prior to coming to campus. Please have your QR code ready, along with your badge, upon entering campus and remember to scan out at the end of day. The screening form questions have been revised, so please read and answer them carefully.
  • Wrist Bands must be visible and worn around your wrist while on campus that day.
  • Clinical Placements: Most clinical partners require students to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to meet their Clinical Experience requirement. Clinical placements and experiences may be at risk for those students who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
  • Face Masks remain optional in all campus facilities, except for post-positive COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure as instructed by the USAHS Reentry Team. We continue to encourage the use of face masks for our pro-bono clinics and with research study participants. Face masks will continue to be made available on all campuses.
  • Visitors will continue to be limited to those on official University business or who support USAHS’ academic purpose.

Please refer to the Campus Reentry page for policies, procedures and FAQs.

It is important to have current addresses on all students. This includes legal, permanent home address, local address and emergency contact information on file in the event of emergency situations. This information is also used for administrative purposes, such as validating enrollment at the campus where your program is offered and ensuring you are located in a state where the University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences (USAHS) is able to offer your program. Please take three minutes of your time today to check your personal contact information and emergency contacts to ensure they are up to date.

To add or update your addresses, please follow these steps:

  1. Log into the MyUSA portal.
  2. Click the My Info tab on top menu bar.
  3. Click My Contact Info on the left menu bar.
  4. Click Update Contact Info on the middle of the page.
  5. Ensure your mobile phone is correct, as we’ll use this number to call or text students for emergency communications, such as weather-related or other critical operational alerts.
  6. Scroll down to Permanent Address, Local Address* and Emergency Contact Information. Enter your information or make changes to each section (verify other contact information is correct and update, if necessary).
  7. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Next Page to review your updates.
  8. After reviewing your updates, click submit.

*If you do not relocate to attend USAHS and do not have a local address different from your legal permanent address, please add the same address to the local address field. This will allow us to know that you do not have a local address different from your legal permanent address and prevents us from sending you additional requests for a local address.

It is critical that you, as a member of the campus community, provide accurate contact information in applicable systems to ensure communications are received in the event of an emergency. Further, before you relocate to another state, you are advised to check your program’s webpage to make sure you are aware of any limitations on the University’s ability to operate and/or place students in clinical experiences in that state. It remains your responsibility to understand, evaluate and comply with all requirements relating to field education experiences, licensing or certification, authorization or endorsement for the state in which you reside. As a USAHS student, you are to provide emergency contact information either on the Student Services portal or to the Student Services office. You are asked to provide an update any time there is a change and to check your contact information at the beginning of each term start. Thank you for your assistance.
