Fall 2020 Opening Information
Coordinating Preparation and Response
PSU’s Fall 2020 Opening Task Force has been working hard to plan for students’ safe return to campus this fall. This and related webpages include information for students and families, faculty and staff, and community members, and will be updated throughout the summer as issues arise and decisions are made.
On July 10, 2020, the University released its Fall 2020 Opening Plan, which has been carefully vetted by the USNH Board of Trustees. Please note that this plan is fluid and constitutes a moment in time, and will continue to be fine-tuned as new information becomes available.
The foundations of our approach include New Hampshire state guidelines for reopening, public health guidelines for supporting higher education on campus, and COVID-19 testing for the campus community. The health and safety of the campus community is our highest priority.
Informed Consent Agreement
All students are required to review an informed consent agreement regarding their return to campus. A electronic version of the agreement is available at go.plymouth.edu/informedconsent. This agreement needs to be signed by August 3, 2020. Any questions should be sent to email@example.com.
This agreement acknowledges the expectations we have that individuals will engage in the social and hygiene practices we have identified as important. An informed consent is not the same as a waiver of liability. It is a recognition that a student understands what is expected and that it is their individual responsibility to follow behavioral and safety practices that we hope will mitigate risks for students, faculty and staff who return to our campuses.
You must be an active student and 18 years old and above to access the electronic agreement. If you are having issues accessing the page please contact the PSU Help Desk.
