Do I have to complete the Daily Symptom Survey?

Currently, everyone — students, employees, visitors — must complete a Daily Symptom Survey before entering a university-managed facility. A daily symptom survey is a requirement for all UC Davis-operated facilities anywhere in California and serves as a reminder to pay attention to your symptoms.

Daily Symptom Survey requirements for fall 2021 are to be determined.

What do I do if I become sick?

Students who are sick or have questions about COVID-19 or other conditions are encouraged to contact Student Health and Counseling Services (SHCS) for a telehealth visit with a nurse or medical provider for further assessment and advice. Make an appointment online or call 530-752-2349.

Insurance companies are covering COVID-19 testing in most circumstances when medically indicated. If a registered student obtains medically indicated COVID-19 testing at SHCS, there will be no out of pocket cost to that student for that test.

In addition to SHCS, information about COVID-19 testing in Yolo County is available on the county’s website. The California Department of Public Health also offers help to find testing sites.

Students should also communicate with their instructor and advisors to provide any relevant updates and coordinate regarding any impact their illness may have on their class work.

What should I do if someone in my household is sick with possible COVID or has been diagnosed with COVID?

Students who may have had contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 or who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 should call Student Health and Counseling Services at 530-752-2349 for an appointment with an RN or provider, during which they will be evaluated and given direction consistent with public health recommendations. Depending on their situation, the student may be moved to a quarantine space, asked to self-quarantine in their current living space, or asked to monitor their health.

Will suspected cases of COVID-19 be shared to help eliminate concerns about possible risks to others?

For the health of our community, the campus has a reporting process by which we review confirmed cases of COVID-19 and respond to those concerned about a member of the campus community having COVID-19, whether on or off campus. Employees and students at the Davis campus must report a COVID-19 diagnosis for themselves or someone with whom they share a residence. Follow this brief guidance to report a positive case or concern by emailing reportcovid@ucdavis.edu.

A team of medical and administrative staff has been established to offer guidance to the affected individual and ascertain risk to the campus and appropriate steps, while continuing to balance the need for privacy.

Anyone identified within our campus community as being at risk of exposure from these individuals will be notified if they need to quarantine and/or self-monitor for symptoms.

A website provides some basic information about reported cases for the Davis campus and their status.

The flu vaccination requirement for fall 2021 is to be determined. You may visit the UC Davis Flu Vaccination Information page to learn more about the influenza vaccination requirement from the 2020-21 academic year. 

Last updated:

What are the benefits of getting the flu shot?

Benefits of the flu shot include:

  • It can keep you from getting sick with the flu.
  • If you do get the flu after getting the flu shot, the symptoms are likely to be less severe.
  • Aside from helping you stay healthy, the flu shot also reduces the chances of you having to see your healthcare provider for flu-related concerns, which helps our healthcare system have resources available during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • It helps protect the people around you who are more vulnerable to serious flu illness.
  • For more information on flu shot benefits, see the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) website.

Last updated:

Does the flu shot work?

According to the CDC, recent studies show that flu shots ​generally reduce the risk of flu illness by between 40% and 60%. This varies from person to person and season to season. Even if someone gets the flu shot and still gets the flu, several studies have shown that people who get the flu shot do not get as sick as people who do not get the flu shot.

To navigate this new learning environment, please review the Remote Learning Strategies available on the Keep Teaching website.

Last updated:

What do I do on the first day of class?

  • Log into Canvas by the first day of instruction. If your instructor is using Canvas, you should be able to see your class. You can check earlier, but it may not be visible before the first day of instruction.
  • Instructors who are not using Canvas should contact you via email. If you don’t hear from them, email them.

Will classes be exclusively remote? Which ones will be available remotely versus in-person? Can I see that in Schedule Builder?

We advise you to check Schedule Builder to see which classes have been designated “remote.” All lectures and discussion sections will be held remotely for undergraduate students and for most graduate students. For classes without that label, we are still carefully evaluating which of them we can offer in-person, depending on public health guidance. 

If allowed, we know we will be offering a limited number of in-person classes and only those with educational objectives that can be met only through in-person instruction (e.g., advanced laboratory skills, some studio or performance classes, or fieldwork). These classes will follow strict public health guidelines related to required face coverings, physical distancing, disinfecting surfaces, and ventilation systems, among others. Once approved, these classes will be identified in Schedule Builder and we will notify students that the designations have been added.

In addition to indicating whether each class will be offered only remote or have an in-person component, Schedule Builder will also specify whether it will be offered asynchronously to accommodate students living in other time zones.

Last updated:

Can I take classes exclusively remotely even if the campus is open?

Yes, for spring and summer 2021 you can choose to enroll only in courses that are being offered remotely.

Required textbooks that don’t have a digital equivalent are also included at no additional cost. Printed textbooks and other materials may be picked up at the Campus Bookstore or shipped if you are unable to pick up your books in person. We are unable to predict shipping delays due to COVID-19. Therefore, if you are able to visit the Campus Store, picking up your printed textbooks in person will be the most efficient option.

Last updated:

Will students have access to professors and office hours?

Instructors will continue to hold regular office hours via remote means. If you have scheduling questions about office hours, contact your instructor.

Last updated:

Will professors be lenient if students are feeling ill?

Instructors are encouraged to provide reasonable accommodations for students who are feeling ill. Students testing positive for COVID-19 or with COVID-19 symptoms should not attend in-person classes and should seek treatment at Student Health and Counseling Services. Please also follow the campus reporting protocol. For students attending class remotely, please contact your instructor if you are unable to attend a particular class or classes due to health reasons.

We will continue to offer a limited number of in-person classes with educational objectives that can be met only through in-person instruction, such as several studio, performance, and advanced laboratory courses, and those requiring specialized equipment, as well as other specific requirements. These classes will follow strict public health guidelines related to required saliva testing, face coverings, physical distancing, daily symptom surveys, disinfecting practices, and appropriate ventilation systems, among others.

How do I schedule an appointment with my academic advisor?

Schedule appointments per usual through your appointment system. Students within the College of Biological Sciences can schedule appointments through BASC. All other students can schedule appointments through the Advising Appointment System.

Last updated:

Can I schedule an in-person appointment?

In order to comply with campus and community directives, academic advising will only happen remotely. No in-person meetings will occur. You will be able to connect via Zoom or phone.

Last updated:

What are the factors to consider before electing to take a course P/NP?

Important factors to consider include:

  • A “P” is equivalent to a C- or better. P/NP grades are not used in GPA calculations.
  • Taking a course P/NP could have important implications for future graduate school admissions. Graduate schools may have prerequisites that require letter grading. If you have applied or are applying to a graduate program, please check with that program for information on how P/NP grading may affect your application.
  • No course units are awarded for a NP. If you receive a NP, this could drop you below minimum progress or affect academic probationary status. This could also affect the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) calculation, which determines your eligibility for future financial aid.
  • Veterans who receive financial assistance may have a strong motivation to take classes for a letter grade, as the receipt of a grade such as a “NP” can retroactively impact financial aid. Some branches of the armed forces require that students maintain a 2.0 or higher, or make progress toward degree completion; the P/NP option may hinder the ability to maintain this threshold. These are complex issues and students should consult closely with their advisors or the Veterans Success Center.
  • Whether courses can be taken P/NP for a major during the pandemic, as well as policies regarding college P/NP unit caps for graduation during the pandemic, will be determined by each college on a quarter-by-quarter basis.

Last updated:

How do I change my grading option?

Use Schedule Builder to follow the regular process for changing your grading option.

Last updated:

Can I change from P/NP back to a letter grade?

Yes. You can opt for P/NP grading in a course, or revert back to letter grading, up until the P/NP deadline. Please visit the Academic Senate’s COVID-19 Academic Policies page to see if P/NP deadlines have been adjusted for each quarter.

Last updated:

Will taking a class P/NP impact my GPA?

P/NP grades are not factored into the GPA calculation.

Last updated:

Will taking a class P/NP impact my time to graduation?

That depends on whether a letter grade in the class is required by your major or college. Additionally, courses in which you receive an “NP” grade yield no units toward graduation.

Last updated:

I am repeating a course after taking it for a letter grade. Can I take it P/NP?

No.

Last updated:

I am not in good academic standing. Can I take a course P/NP in Fall 2020?

Normally, you must be in good academic standing to take courses P/NP. This requirement has been changed for some quarters. Please visit the Academic Senate’s COVID-19 Academic Policies page to see when flexibilities have been made to this requirement.

Last updated:

Who should I talk to if I’m not sure what to do?

You should start by contacting your academic advisor in your Dean’s Office (or BASC, if you are a College of Biological Student) or your major advisor if the course you are considering changing to P/NP is specifically required for your major (some colleges have modified their P/NP rules during the pandemic).

What is the guidance for students living in private, rental housing?

While the housing decision is a personal one for each student and family, you are also not alone in making this decision. Campus is here to support you in your search for housing information and evaluating your options. We recommend that students read their lease or housing agreement carefully and understand the lease terms, options for termination, subleasing or any other options that could add flexibility to the agreement. For example, some properties may offer a quarter-by-quarter leasing term, which may be a more desirable option in the case of an unexpected shift in public health guidance. In addition, UC Davis and the city of Davis continue to work together to provide support and resources on housing issues.
