Guidance for Online Students

​​​​Fall 2020 COVID Updates
Waldorf Online Operations has been impacted by Hurricane Sally and is currently not available. We anticipate all operations to be back to normal on Monday, September 21, 2020. Access to online coursework is still available and accessible through Blackboard.

Students who have been impacted by the current natural disasters, such as Hurricane Sally and the wildfires in the wester U.S. states, will be given additional time to complete coursework once circumstances allow. We will work with each student impacted by these events to ensure individual circumstances are considered and addressed.

Waldorf University is committed to you during these unprecedented times.  We wish safety and health for you and your family.

It is important to note that Waldorf faculty members reside across the U.S. and may be impacted by these events as well. Please be mindful of this if you experience a delay in response during this time.

Please continue to monitor this website for further updates.

Call-Ahead-Final.jpgI'm sick. What should I do?

The Student Health Service’s Office is no longer a walk-in clinic. This year it is – CALL – DON’T Come.
 
If you develop symptoms of Covid-19 such as fever, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell, or sore throat or if you have been in close contact with a person known to have Covid-19, please contact Nurse Mary to set up a telehealth appointment via Zoom or Facetime to assess your situation. Nurse Mary can be reached at mathiasem@waldorf.edu, text or call 641.590.0619 or  call the office at 641.585.8157.
 
If you aren’t having Covid-19 symptoms, but need to be seen at the Student Health Services, still call first – Don’t just walk-in to set up an appointment to see Nurse Mary.
