Questions About Campus & Courses | April 21, 2020

Will I be reimbursed for my room and board during the time I am not able to stay on campus?

​Yes. In April, we began to process credits and refunds. Students were reimbursed a pro-rata share of room and board in the form of a credit toward the upcoming Fall semester housing, less any balances owed to the University. Because some students are graduating in May, they will receive a cash reimbursement, less any balances owed to the University.

 

I need to register for the Fall 2020 Semester. Can I still do this?
Yes, your Academic Advisor on Main Campus will be available to you through phone or email. During the next two weeks, registration for Fall 2020 will continue virtually and your advisor will be in touch with you to schedule and confirm your virtual meeting time. If you have any questions, please email campusadvising@post.edu

The University will always keep the latest information at the top of our website.

Will nonacademic buildings and facilities, such as Traurig Library and Leever Center remain open?

Traurig Library: Until further notice, the Traurig University Library will only be available virtually.  Students and faculty can access our library associates and ALL our services and resources via our virtual library or research assistance or library@post.edu.  If you need any assistance obtaining online government documents, please email library@post.edu.

Leever Center: Food service will be available (albeit limited hours of operation), until all students have been properly relocated. Specific hours of operation will be forthcoming once we determine the relocation plans for our students.

The Drubner Center, the Fitness Center and the Eagles Nest in lower level of Leever are all closed for the remainder of the semester.

In addition, The Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference has cancelled all athletic contests for the remainder of the Spring Semester.

How can I stay on track with my schoolwork if I’ve not taken a course online before?
Keep Calm. Things happen and it can be hugely inconvenient or disappointing but the only thing we can control is our own response and attitude. We are going to get through this together and nothing can or will take away from the accomplishment of completing your courses and if you are a senior graduating from college. Here are some suggestions:

  • Online Study Group. Arrange with a group of friends to meet virtually to go over schoolwork. A group will help keep you on task and help keep you focused. Remember, you still have access to resources like TutorMe and the Center for Academic Success (CAS@post.edu or 203-596-4686). Stay in communication with your professors and academic advisors via emails and phone calls.
  • Use Your Time Productively. This is a great time to make sure your resume is in top shape and to arrange for summer jobs or internships. You can make an appointment to meet virtually with the Center for Career and Professional Development. Contact careerdev@post.edu or 203 828-2989.

For individuals returning or arriving from abroad, is there a required prohibition period from campus?

If you are arriving in the United States from the countries identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as Level 2 and Level 3 countries, the University requires that you:

1) Do not return to campus, and

2) Self-quarantine for 14 days from your date of return to the United States, even if you do not feel ill. Self-quarantine means that you return to your permanent residence.

At both the beginning and the end of the period of self-quarantine, students must contact Health Services.
