Fall Term 2021 Resources

Here’s a list of UO and SOJC quick links to help you get the information and assistance you need.

 

Coronavirus and Campus Safety

Fall 2021 Return to Campus: The UO plans to return to mostly in-person classes and experiences this fall. COVID-19 isn’t going away, so campus life won’t be like it was before the pandemic. We still need to take precautions and take care of each other. Learn more about how the UO is preparing classrooms, residence halls, libraries, the rec center and more to safely welcome you back to campus, and find answers to frequently asked questions.

UO COVID-19 Resources: View guidance on university policies related to vaccinations, face coverings, what to do if you've been exposed to the coronavirus, and more.

Vaccination Requirement: UO requires students and employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to the start of their fall academic term. Unvaccinated UO students and employees, including those who are partially vaccinated or choose an exemption, are required to take part in weekly COVID-19 testing. 

COVID-19 Testing: Free COVID-19 testing is available for all asymptomatic UO employees, students, and Lane County residents age 3 and older. Weekly testing is required for anyone who is unvaccinated with an exemption.

Allen Hall Guidelines for Students: Find out what to expect when you arrive on campus, including building access, reserving computer labs and production spaces, and checking out equipment.

University Health Services: UO students can use the myUOHealth online portal to confidentially schedule appointments, manage immunization records, view education materials, register insurance, and more. 

 

Financial and Other Assistance

UO Caregiver Resources: The university has two networks—the Care Provider Network and the Shared Care Network—to help faculty, staff, and students meet caregiving needs while balancing school and work responsibilities.

Higher Education Relief Funds: The UO has been, and will continue, distributing Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds (HEERF) to students through the federal stimulus funding programs approved by Congress. These funds will assist students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Students in Crisis Fund: If you don’t qualify for aid from the CARES Act but are experiencing a financial crisis that may negatively impact your academics, you may be eligible to receive financial support from the UO Students in Crisis Fund.

Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships: Many grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships are available to help UO students pay for college and living expenses.
