  • Will housing and dining rates be different for Spring Semester 2021?

    Housing and dining rates have remained unchanged. Due to the apartment rates remaining unchanged from last year and free upgrades to single rooms in the residence halls (a $700 per semester upgrade), all housing residents will enjoy an excellent value for the same price. The university elected to keep meal plan rates the same as last year, even though there have been price increases for food, as well as added costs incurred to implement safety protocol precautions. As much as possible, the university is committed to absorbing these additional expenses and not passing those onto the students through additional fees.

  • Will students need a parking pass for Spring Semester?

    Valid parking permits are required to park on campus.

    Fall 2020 student permits will remain valid through May 1, 2021. Students who purchased a fall permit do not need to purchase a spring 2021 permit. Students may park in any non-reserved staff, faculty, or student spot on campus.

    Students who do not have a fall 2020 permit may purchase a spring 2021 permit. Spring student permits cost $48 each and will be valid through May 1, 2021. Students may order a spring permit at wright.edu/parking. This includes both commuter and resident permits. Students may park in any non-reserved staff, faculty, or student spot on campus.

    Lake Campus students and employees should visit the Lake Campus website for parking information.

Coronavirus Testing

  • How can students get tested for COVID-19?

    If a Wright State student or employee has concerns about their risk of COVID-19, they should call their primary health care provider or Student Health Services (937-245-7200).

    Student Health Services (937-245-7200) is the preferred point of the first contact for Dayton Campus students. Student Health Services can conduct a tele-health appointment to assess symptoms and refer students for testing. Wright State University Physicians and Student Health Services offer limited COVID-19 testing on our Dayton Campus. View additional COVID-19 testing information.

    Lake Campus students are also encouraged to call Student Health Services to schedule a tele-health appointment. Lake Campus community members needing testing will be referred to the Mercer Health testing facility or other local testing facilities.

    If any student tests positive, Student Health Services will provide follow-up medical care and case management.

  • Is the testing process different for Lake Campus students?

    Lake Campus students are also encouraged to call Student Health Services to schedule a tele-health appointment. Lake Campus students (or employees) needing testing will be referred to the Mercer Health testing facility or other local testing facilities.

  • What are the out-of-pocket expenses for viral testing?

    Student insurance will be billed for the laboratory test, and there is no co-pay for a physician-ordered viral test.

  • How long will it take for individuals to receive a notification of the lab results?

    The turn around time for laboratory results can vary by facility and local activity. Most laboratories expect a 24-hour window; however, some facilities with increased testing volumes can take several days to return testing results to the health care provider.

  • Who will be notified of positive COVID-19 results?

    An individual who tests positive for COVID-19 will first receive a phone call from the physician or care provider who ordered the laboratory test. The care provider then notifies the local public health department, which then enters the infectious disease into the Ohio Disease Reporting System. 

    Students and employees are also asked to self-report any probable or positive test results to Environmental Health and Safety. Testing and exposure information will be kept confidential. Gathering testing information from across the university allows us to understand patterns in community spread and make informed decisions to keep our community members safe.

  • What happens when I receive a phone call from my local public health agency?

    A local public health employee calls all individuals who test positive for COVID-19. The purpose of the call is to educate the individual about their exposure, ask the individual to self-isolate, and inquire about the daily activities on days before testing. Individuals will be asked to report the locations they visited and all interpersonal interactions that occurred over the previous days. The public health employee can also answer questions and make referrals to medical and social services.

  • What is a close contact?

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a close contact as any individual who was within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes, starting from two days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days before positive specimen collection) until the time the positive individual is isolated.

  • Should students and employees notify their close contacts about a recent positive test?

    Local public health employees will call all close contacts identified by a positive case. Based on local activity and caseloads, it could take several days for a local public health agency to reach all your close contacts.

    For this reason, we recommended that students and employees notify close contacts of possible exposure and inform Environmental Health and Safety, who will assist in the contact identification and notification.

  • I heard that a student in one of my classes tested positive; should I quarantine myself?

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a close contact as any individual who was within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes, starting from two days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days prior to positive specimen collection) until the time the positive individual is isolated. If you meet these exposure criteria, then yes, you should quarantine for 14 days. 

    If you have questions about a possible exposure, please call Environmental Health and Safety at 937-775-2215. If you would to be assessed for testing, please call Student Health Services at 937-245-7200.

  • Will someone follow-up with me during self-isolation?

    Absolutely. Student Health Services will conduct regular phone calls to provide medical follow-up and emotional and informational support. Individuals in isolation will also receive regular monitoring and symptom checking from their local public health agency.

  • How will Wright State University know if there is a campus-related outbreak?

    All positive laboratory results are entered into the Ohio Disease Reporting System. Public health epidemiologists monitor the data and can identify trends in case locations. Local public health agencies will notify university representatives of clusters of cases associated with university locations.

    Student Health Services and Environmental Health and Safety are also collaborating to monitor student health laboratory results and self-reported cases to identify trends in positive test results.

  • Will tuition be reduced?

    Even though the COVID-19 pandemic has hit us all hard, Wright State University remains committed to offering its students and families the same affordable, high-quality education as it always has.

Faculty and Staff

Academics

  • What information should I include on my syllabus?

    A document has been developed to help you think about important topics you may choose to include on your syllabus. Download the document.

  • How can I find out a classroom's adjusted capacity due to coronavirus?

    The Office of the Registrar has a full list of classrooms and their new capacities. View the listing.

  • What resources are available to help faculty teach remotely?

    The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is gathering easily accessible resource materials and tutorials to support all faculty, whether you are an experienced Pilot user looking to move your in-class activities online in some capacity or someone just looking to get started. Learn more.

    CTL also offers Remote Tips & Resources.

    The University Libraries offers resources and services to support remote instruction.

  • What can faculty do if a student reservist or member of the Ohio National Guard is deployed?

    Recently some 300 members of the Ohio National Guard were activated. There are approximately 110 students in the guard/reserve who are enrolled at Wright State, and about 40 who are on active duty. At least one Wright State student has been activated so far, and that number could rise.

    The Excused Absence Guidelines includes Military Activation as an excused absence. The policy states:

    Faculty members are encouraged to work with students who experience legitimate and verifiable absences in such a way that both the faculty and students' educational goals are met. The faculty member determines if an accommodation is feasible and the appropriate form of alternative work or education experiences. In some cases, the only viable option is for the student to withdraw from the course.

    Deployment, even locally, can be all-encompassing for the service member.

    Here is what you can do if a student reaches out to you in this situation.

    1. Please make students aware of this guide that provides a step by step process for students to follow: https://www.wright.edu/sites/www.wright.edu/files/Military%20Active%20Duty%20Withdrawal%20Policy.pdf
       
    2. If approached by a student to make accommodations for this reason, please inquire as to whether the student has received "orders" or has been placed on "standby." We want to discourage students from withdrawing until they receive orders.
       
    3. Please evaluate the student's progress in reference to your own course requirements and objectives. You are the ultimate arbiter of the student's grade and requirements to complete your course.

    Some possible strategies employed in the past include:

    • Granting the student the grade they had earned up to the point of activation.
    • Granting an incomplete (if you can) with a possible extended timeline to complete.
    • Creating alternative assignments that can be completed.
    1. Students who need to withdraw can receive a “W” even past the final deadline.

    If you have questions or need assistance with a solution, please contact the Veteran and Military Center at vmc@wright.edu or 937-775-5550.

  • What do I do if a student informs me they are too sick to continue in class?

    First, inquire whether the student is with a trusted caregiver. If they are alone, notify Wright State Physicians Student Health Services (https://www.wright.edu/student-health-services), who will initiate a plan to check on the student.

    Second, regarding academics: if appropriate, give the student a grade of “Incomplete,” (this is at your discretion), which involves setting up a contract with how the work will be completed when the student is better. Here is the process: https://www.wright.edu/registrar/grading, Incomplete Grades, and the contract (https://www.wright.edu/sites/www.wright.edu/files/page/attachments/Incomplete_Contract_Form.pdf). Note that under the circumstances, the student may be unable to send a signed contract to you, so please be prepared to arrange this electronically. It is important to keep in mind that documentation of illness may be more difficult at this time.

  • Do you know how classes will be delivered in next semester?

    Spring Semester 2021 classes are currently planned to follow a similar structure as Fall 2020, with roughly 1/3 of classes having an in-person component, 1/3 online asynchronous (on-demand), and 1/3 online synchronous (real-time). Read more on the academics section of the coronavirus website: https://www.wright.edu/coronavirus/academics

  • What equipment will be provided in the classroom I'm teaching in to accommodate students attending class either in-person or remotely?

    CaTS has upgraded 35 Dayton campus classrooms to support faculty teaching a combination of both in-person and remote classes. These classrooms feature Cisco video equipment, including a camera in the back of the classroom to capture the instructor and/or the whiteboard as class is being taught, as well as a Cisco control panel mounted on the teaching workstation which allows the instructor to control the different camera views, the volume of remote students as they interact during class, and the ability to share class content. 

    Learn more on the In-Person/Remote Video Learning Classrooms website.

Coronavirus Testing

  • What happens when there is a positive case on campus?

    Environmental Health and Safety will serve as the point of contact of all university-related confirmed or probable COVID-19 cases. EHS will receive notifications from Student Health Services, local public health agencies, and the EHS employee self-report portal. EHS will call or email the individual with a positive or probable result to conduct a preliminary case investigation that focuses on campus environments and interactions. The work by EHS is intended to supplement the case investigation and tracing calls from local public health employees.

  • What happens if I have a class on Monday morning and I find out that evening that one of the students tests positive for COVID-19. What are the procedures before we meet again on Wednesday?

    Faculty concerned about any classroom-based exposure should contact Environmental Health and Safety. EHS will conduct a case investigation focusing on campus-related exposures. The case investigation will first verify the positive test result and then conduct preliminary contact tracing. Please note that local public health will or may have already conducted a case investigation and contact tracing. 

    From that EHS campus investigation, the faculty member will be advised of a recommended course of action. Typically, students in class or in other spaces with a student who tested positive during which all individuals were wearing the required face covering and maintained a six-foot distance will not be considered close contacts or need monitoring or isolation.

    Classrooms will be cleaned and disinfected daily, and on an as needed basis.

  • How do I contact EHS?

    To reach Environmental Health and Safety, call 937-775-2215. EHS will be working collaboratively with local public health agencies to investigate campus exposures.

  • Will my class be notified of a positive case?

    In coordination with Environmental Health and Safety, local public health employees will contact individuals who have been identified as a close contact by a confirmed positive case. EHS will notify the instructor of the case and contact tracing efforts. The need for a class notification will be made based in consultation with EHS and the faculty member.

  • Should I be thinking of assigning seats in my classroom?

    Yes, asking students to sit in the same seat is a good preventative practice. Seating arrangements limit the number of potential social interactions and allow for more efficient contact tracing if needed.

    Students should still wear a face covering, maintain six feet of distance, and wipe surfaces before use. Risk exposure is cumulative, and the more preventive actions taken, the lower the risk for viral exposure.

  • What is a close contact?

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a close contact as any individual who was within six feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes, starting from two days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, two days before positive specimen collection) until the time the positive individual is isolated.

  • Should students and employees notify their close contacts about a recent positive test?

    Local public health employees will call all close contacts identified by a positive case. Based on local activity and caseloads, it could take several days for a local public health agency to reach all your close contacts.

    For this reason, we recommended that students and employees notify close contacts of possible exposure and inform Environmental Health and Safety, who will assist in the contact identification and notification.

  • How will Wright State University know if there is a campus-related outbreak?

    All positive laboratory results are entered into the Ohio Disease Reporting System. Public health epidemiologists monitor the data and can identify trends in case locations. Local public health agencies will notify university representatives of clusters of cases associated with university locations.

    Student Health Services and Environmental Health and Safety are also collaborating to monitor student health laboratory results and self-reported cases to identify trends in positive test results.

  • If a student in my class tested positive, should my class quarantine?

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines a close contact as any individual who was within 6 feet of an infected person for at least 15 minutes starting from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to positive specimen collection) until the time the positive individual is isolated.  If a student or faculty meet these exposure criteria, yes, they should quarantine for 14 days. If there are questions about possible exposure, please call EHS at (937) 775-2215 or your local public health agency.

In the Classroom

    Yes. All students, faculty, staff and visitors are required to wear a face mask in campus buildings. Read more about masks on campus.

  • What should I do if a student comes to class without a mask?

    If a student arrives without a face mask, politely ask them to wear one if they have one, ask other students if they have an extra clean mask for the student's use, direct them to a location (TBA) where they can obtain a mask, or give them one if you have an extra. If they refuse or no mask is available, ask the student to leave. If a student refuses to leave, faculty will dismiss the class, and the student will be reported to the Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct at 937-775-4240, or studentconduct@wright.edu.

  • What should I do if a student refuses to wear a mask?

    If a student refuses to wear a face covering properly, they will be asked to leave the class. If a student refuses to leave, we encourage faculty members to consider dismissing the class and notifying the Office of Community Standards and Student Conduct at 937-775-4240 or studentconduct@wright.edu.

  • What should I do if a student says they have an exemption from wearing a mask?

    To get an exemption, a student must go through the Office of Disability Services in advance. It is the same as any other accommodation.

  • What should I do when I arrive in my classroom?

    Clean the surfaces you will touch, using the cleaning equipment supplied. Ask students to do the same.

    Learn more about teaching safely in the classroom.

  • Will cleaning supplies be available in the classroom?

    Yes. Cleaning solution, paper towels, and hand sanitizer will be available in classrooms. Please call 937-775-4444 or email facilities@wright.edu if additional supplies are needed.

  • How frequently will classrooms be deep cleaned by the cleaning staff?

    At least once a day. 

  • Do I have to wear a mask while teaching?

    Yes. Read more about masks on campus.

  • Can I wear a face shield instead of a mask?

    No. The university is following CDC recommendations, and those state that a face shield does not provide as much protection as a mask does. As such, face shields may not be used in place of a face mask.

  • How will student know where to sit to maintain social distancing?

    Facilities has removed extra seats from classrooms and rearranged the furniture to maintain physical distancing. 

  • How will students know where to stand while waiting to get into classrooms?

    To maintain physical distancing, stickers have been placed on the floors outside of classrooms to help students know where to stand when waiting outside of the classroom.

  • How will we know which doors to use to get into a building?

    Signs have been posted so that social distancing can be maintained as people enter and leave the building. 

  • How will I know the COVID capacity for my classroom?

    Facilities staff have removed extra seats and rearranged the furniture to allow appropriate physical distancing. View the adjusted classroom capacities.

  • Is there a requirement that students, faculty, or staff are tested before coming on campus?

    No.

  • What do I do if a student requests extra time or other accommodations in my class because they or a close relative have COVID-19?

    First, inquire whether the student is with a trusted caregiver. If they are alone, notify Wright State Physicians Student Health Services (https://www.wright.edu/student-health-services), who will initiate a plan to check on the student.

    Second, regarding academics: if appropriate, give the student a grade of “Incomplete,” (this is at your discretion), which involves setting up a contract with how the work will be completed when the student is better.

Note that under the circumstances, the student may be unable to send a signed contract to you, so please be prepared to arrange this electronically. It is important to keep in mind that documentation of illness may be more difficult at this time.

  • If a student informs me that she or he needs to borrow a webcam, laptop, or other equipment, whom should I encourage them to contact?

    For hardware support, please contact CaTS.

  • If a student informs me that they have internet access problems (e.g., may request a hotspot) whom should I encourage them to contact?

    Send the student name, UID, and active phone number to raidersupport@wright.edu, or ask the student to contact the student retention team, www.wright.edu/srt. There are some hotspots available if students meet certain criteria.

    Additionally, some classroom and computer lab spaces across campus are reserved for open study areas. View locations and hours.

  • Am I supposed to hold office hours in my campus office or online?

    Faculty should offer office hours only virtually with scheduled times or by appointment.

  • What do I do if I become ill beyond a day or two, or if I test positive for COVID-19?
