We are looking ahead to the Summer Term with optimism and enthusiasm as our plans unfold. Summer Term classes will begin, as scheduled, May 10, 2021.

The exciting news is that we also will begin on-campus lab activities May 10 and will continue them until August 1. This schedule expands on-campus activity, and all students with courses that have labs will have an on-campus presence. All labs and on-campus activities will continue to conform to safety and health guidelines and governmental regulations. All lecture-based courses and activities will continue virtually throughout the term.

For the full update, please visit the Reentry page.

For questions not addressed in the FAQs, please reach out to your student success advisor or faculty advisor. We look forward to seeing you on campus!

With mask-wearing now part of our daily lives, it’s important not to let your masks go neglected. Correct and consistent mask use is critical to prevent getting and spreading COVID-19. Plus, it’s a University of St. Augustine for Health Sciences requirement to wear a mask while on campus and when entering and exiting campus.

Masks work best when everyone wears them, but not all masks provide the same protection. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has these guidelines on improving how your mask protects you.

  • Ensure masks fit snugly and are clean. Now is a good time to toss those masks that have been stretched out or washed beyond recognition.
  • Double-masking can help improve the fit of your mask. The University does not require wearing two masks, but if you choose to double up, please follow CDC guidelines.
  • Reference additional USAHS COVID-19 details on reentry and the Return to Campus Plan at https://www.usa.edu/return-to-campus/.

It is very important to have current addresses on all students, including legal home permanent, local address and emergency contact information on file in the event of emergency situations and for administrative purposes, such as validating enrollment at the campus where your program is offered.  

If you do not relocate to attend school 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.

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

  • Log into the MyUSA portal
  • Click the My Info tab on top menu bar
  • Click My Contact Info on the left menu bar
  • Click Update Contact Info on the middle of the page
  • Scroll down to Permanent Address,  Local Address and/or Emergency Contact Information and enter your information or make changes (verify other contact information is correct and update, if necessary)
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click Next Page to review your updates.
  • After reviewing your updates, click submit

Thank you for supplying this very important information.

How to complete my Personal Health Screening

A mobile-friendly online form will be used for personal health screening, which involves taking your temperature daily and answering questions related to COVID-19 symptoms and any potential exposure you may have had to the virus. Completing the personal health screening each day prior to your first day of return to campus is strongly recommended. After your first day of return to campus, the personal health screening will be required daily for the duration of the term or until you are no longer regularly coming to campus. COVID-19 diagnostic testing is not required for returning to campus.
