COVID-19 Resources

The university remains vigilant and proactive with the situation regarding coronavirus. Our primary goal is to keep our community healthy and safe.

Please check your inbox about future actions and recommendations from the university.

Prevention

How is UWS working to keep students and employees safe?

UWS is actively implementing increased sanitation and prevention protocols across campus, and encouraging measures to provide social distancing among students and employees including:

  • Encouraging students and employees to engage in social distancing measures while on campus.
  • Cancelling non-essential travel.
  • Delaying or cancelling non-essential meetings and events.
  • Transitioning essential meetings to phone or Zoom, when possible and applicable.
  • Modifying specific department schedules and work locations to be implemented on a case-by-case basis.
  • Transitioning all Spring quarter 2020 courses and labs to online delivery.
  • Intern clinic rotations have been suspended until April 28, 2020 due to governmental restrictions, and to protect the safety of our students. Because the coronavirus situation is rapidly evolving, we expect this restriction to be extended into mid to late May. At this time, we recommend that students currently living outside of the Portland area continue their clinical training online and not travel back to Portland to attend clinic until we are officially cleared for intern rotations. The university will resume intern rotations when all restrictions have been lifted and when it is safe to do so.

What can I do to avoid getting sick?

The best way to prevent the spread of respiratory illnesses, including COVID-19 and influenza, is to avoid exposure to the virus. Take the CDC-recommended precautions to reduce your risk of exposure, including proper handwashing; avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth; covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a trash receptacle; cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched objects and surfaces; and avoiding close contact with individuals who are sick.

How can I practice social distancing?

Students and employees are advised to practice these recommended social distancing measures: 

  • Maintain a distance of at least three to six feet from other individuals when possible.
  • Limit attendance at all non-essential events and gatherings, especially larger events.
  • Utilize email, phone or video conferencing to connect with students, instructors or other UWS offices.

How should I clean my work space?

The CDC recommends individuals clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (i.e., keyboards, cell phones, doorknobs, desks, light switches, etc.) using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. An EPA-registered disinfectant or 10% bleach/water solution will be most effective. These cleaning and disinfectant products are readily available through mail order or local supermarkets and stores that stock basic home cleaning products. The university will provide these cleaning products for you through your department’s operating budget.

Should I wear a facemask to work?

In light of new evidence, CDC recommends wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies) especially in areas of significant community-based transmission.

It is critical to emphasize that maintaining six-feet social distancing remains important to slowing the spread of the virus. CDC is additionally advising the use of simple cloth face coverings to slow the spread of the virus and help people who may have the virus and do not know it from transmitting it to others. Cloth face coverings fashioned from household items or made at home from common materials at low cost can be used as an additional, voluntary public health measure.

The cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

What would happen if UWS had a confirmed case?

The CDC advises that in the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19, our first step would be to consult with local health officials. We would determine with local health officials if there would be a need to suspend or modify university operations.

Human Resources

Can I work remotely?

Effective March 23, the university will require specific employees to work remotely through April 28 to limit the number of employees on campus at a given time. Decisions to transition an employee to temporary remote work will be made by the employee’s supervisor in consultation with the division vice president.

Employees who work remotely are required to comply with the university telework policy. Please visit the ServiceHub remote work resource page if you have questions regarding technology or resources while working remotely.

Which employees are considered “essential on-campus personnel?”

To limit the number of individuals on campus, and in accordance with the governor’s executive order for higher education, the university has deemed specific individuals or groups “essential on-campus employees.” These are individuals or groups who are unable to perform all or some of their duties from a remote environment. Essential on-campus personnel include key individuals from these university departments:

  • Executive administration
  • Safety, security and facilities
  • Registration
  • Financial aid
  • Business office (partial staff)
  • Human resources (partial staff)
  • Campus store (partial staff)
  • Clinicians and clinic staff
  • Technical services
  • Student services (as needed)

Based on supervisor direction, employees in these departments may report to campus on a rotating basis to ensure continuity and customer service. 

Students and employees who need in-person services from these departments should call or email first to schedule an appointment.

I have a health condition and I am concerned about coming to work. What should I do?

The university recommends employees with specific health concerns contact their health care provider for medical advice tailored to their individual situations. Employees should then contact the office of human resources to discuss the health care provider recommendations so it can be evaluated from an accommodation and leave standpoint.

Can I use sick leave if I am diagnosed with coronavirus, known as COVID-19, or if I need to care for a diagnosed family member?

All employees are eligible to use accrued sick leave for absences due to personal illness, including COVID-19, or to care for an ill family member, based on the appropriate policy or collective bargaining agreement. Please refer to the Employee Handbook for more information.

Do I have options for remote access to health care through my health insurance plan so I can speak with a medical professional without visiting a medical clinic?

Yes, all of the Kaiser insurance plans offered to UWS employees include alternative resources for care, such as a nurse advice line or virtual care. Visit the website for your health insurance plan to learn more about the available options.

Can I ask another employee about their underlying health concerns?

The ADA prohibits disability-related inquiries unless they are job related and consistent with business necessity. Please contact the office of human resources if you have a concern about another employee’s health or well-being.

Can I ask another employee to go home if they are ill or exhibit concerning symptoms?

In the event that another employee is ill or exhibits concerning symptoms, please contact the office of human resources. The university reserves the right to send employees home. However, employees and supervisors should not suggest another employee go home due to illness without consulting with human resources.

Please refrain from making assumptions about other people’s symptoms, as there are many possible causes for respiratory system symptoms, especially as we enter the spring allergy season.

Current Students

Will spring term classes occur as planned?

On-Campus Students

  • All lecture and lab courses in the chiropractic program will be offered online for the entire spring term. Online courses will be open and available starting Sunday, April 5. Students will begin online courses on Monday, April 6.  If your course(s) are not open, please contact your instructor.
  • Anatomy labs offered during spring term will be implemented online and virtually. Faculty have partnered with university leadership to ensure students receive a high-quality experience. If you would like to visit the anatomy lab, please schedule an appointment with Dr. Borman.

Online Students

All online courses will continue as planned for spring term. We do not anticipate any disruption to online coursework.

Will tuition for the chiropractic program remain the same for spring 2020?

Yes. Although the chiropractic program has been temporarily transitioned to an online format, students will continue to receive the same number of instructional credits for spring term.

The tuition for the chiropractic program is calculated for the entire program and then divided evenly across 12 quarters to maintain a consistent cost and keep tuition lower than if it were a pay-per-credit program. In the event that due to the online delivery format, necessary assessment methods will not allow enrolled students  to complete classroom or clinical requirements, the program will make arrangements for students to complete these requirements in a subsequent term without additional cost to the student beyond the total program tuition.

Spring term payment dates, interest and late fees
April 30 is the payment due date for spring tuition and fees. Online e-check or credit card payments are the preferable method of payment. If you experience any technical issues with making a payment online, a ticket can be submitted via ServiceHub.   

UWS offers payment plans for our students to schedule tuition payments over the course of the term. With a payment plan in place and timely payments, all set-up fees and interest will be waived for spring term. The business office is available to assist at [email protected]

  • Complete Entrance Counseling and a Master Promissory Note on studentaid.gov. This applies to new borrowers only.

Your information may be verified by logging into MyUWS and clicking the financial aid tab. Please contact the office of financial aid at [email protected] or 503-847-2563 for assistance.

Please remember to complete a FAFSA by May 15, 2020 in order to receive priority processing and on-time funding for summer term 2020.


What about student events?

All events are canceled for spring term.

Will the clinic and other campus services remain open?

At this time, the UWS campuses remain open and operating under normal hours, with certain services closed to limit potential exposure. Closure information is as follows:

Library

The physical library space will not be open to students, but students can still get the library resources they need.

  • If you need to check out a physical resource (e.g., textbook, iPad, charger, etc.) on site, please email [email protected] to make an appointment to pick up and drop off the resource. Please give library staff at least four hours notice so we can have your item(s) ready for you. This service will be available Monday – Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • When you return items, library staff will clean headphones, chargers, iPads and other similar durable goods. Books will be quarantined for two days before they can be checked out again.

The library will be able to mail out print textbooks to students, subject to availability. We will process requests as soon as we can, in the order that they are received. For textbook requests, please follow these guidelines:

  • To see what textbooks are required for your courses, see the library’s Course Reserves guide online.
  • To request that a print textbook is mailed to you, please email [email protected] with the title(s) and a current, secure mailing address.
  • Please note that the following policies apply: (1) you may check out up to three textbooks at a time; (2) books may be checked out for four weeks, including the time it takes to ship it to you; and (3) you are responsible for the cost of shipping back to the library and we suggest that you have tracking on the return package.

Fitness Center

To limit potential exposure, the fitness center will be closed starting on Saturday, March 14 and will remain closed until further notice.

Clinic

Intern clinic rotations have been suspended until April 28, 2020 due to governmental restrictions, and to protect the safety of our students. Because the coronavirus situation is rapidly evolving, we expect this restriction to be extended into mid to late May. At this time, we recommend that students currently living outside of the Portland area continue their clinical training online and not travel back to Portland to attend clinic until we are officially cleared for intern rotations. The university will resume intern rotations when all restrictions have been lifted and when it is safe to do so.

Starting April 6, 2020, interns are participating in clinical internships through remote experiences. These carefully designed experiences will continue your clinical training and provide opportunities to ensure you continue to advance and meet all clinic requirements while COVID-19 restrictions are in place. Your attending physician and Dr. Stan Ewald are your contacts for more information on your clinical experiences.

I need university services that can’t be accessed remotely and I need to come to campus. What should I do?

To protect the health of our University of Western States community and to comply with the Oregon Governor’s executive orders regarding COVID-19, visitors to the UWS campus (8000 NE Tillamook St., Portland, Oregon 97213) are limited until April 28, 2020. Students who need services that can’t be provided remotely may be granted permission to access the UWS campus on an individual basis. Please follow these instructions to request in-person services between April 6 and April 28, 2020.

What should I do if I’m sick?

Stay home and call your primary care provider before going in for care. Contact your instructors if you will miss classes, finals or clinic shifts.

The university administration may require students or employees to return home if they arrive on campus exhibiting symptoms of infection.

Please refrain from making assumptions about other people’s symptoms, as there are many possible causes for respiratory system symptoms, especially as we enter the spring allergy season.

I am an international student in the chiropractic program and I’m worried I won’t be able to return to the U.S. in a timely manner in order to continue in the spring due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. What should I do?

We will strive support international students as they navigate their travel to and from the U.S. during this difficult time. We are working diligently to create possible solutions to address the needs of international students that may experience delays in returning to campus to continue their education. Please contact [email protected] to share information about your individual needs.

What would happen if UWS had a confirmed case?

In the event of a confirmed case of COVID-19 infection, UWS leadership will immediately consult with local public health officials and take necessary actions. The university will continue to disseminate emerging information by email.

How will this impact the spring 2020 Commencement ceremony?

UWS is closely monitoring the potential consequences of COVID-19 on the spring Commencement ceremony, scheduled for Friday, June 19, 2020. As of now, there are no changes. Please monitor the UWS website and your UWS email address for any emerging updates.

What online learning support and campus resources are available to me?

We are here for you during this difficult time and want to support you in your studies! Please review the student services resource guide for support available during the spring quarter.

Chiropractic students also have access to a “Navigating Your Spring Term DC Course” resource to support students transitioning to online lectures. In this course you will find online learning tips, information about how to navigate your webCampus courses, how to manage notifications, options for collaboration such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams and helpful video tutorials on navigating the online learning environment! 

I have U.S. federally held student loans. Can I receive help with payments during this time?
All U.S. federally held student loan payments will automatically stop from March 13, 2020 through September 30, 2020. If you have questions about this federal relief program, please contact Kim Lamborn at [email protected].

I have a private student loan. Do I qualify for assistance during this time?
Students will need to check with individual lender if any relief is available. For additional student loan questions, please contact Kim Lamborn at [email protected].

Clinic Experience

I am in the chiropractic program and my classes have been transitioned to online delivery. What does this mean?

Chiropractic instructors have been working diligently to put your lecture and lab courses into a new format for spring term. This new format will:

  • Deliver the same information and content with the same number of credit hours,
  • Help you attain the same course competencies and associated skills, and
  • Allow you the same ability to interact with professors just as if you were on campus.

UWS has a long and established history delivering online instruction and interacting with students in an online environment. We are now bringing that online expertise to our DC program to ensure you continue to receive the instruction you need to be an effective chiropractic physician. With the support of Dr. Dana Sims, our vice president for academic affairs and a long-time leader in online education, along with our UWS Center for Teaching and Learning, your professors are creating an active and engaging online learning experience for you. Your learning experience will allow you to achieve the goals and competencies required for your program and profession.

I am in clinical internship in the chiropractic program. Can I participate in clinic?

Intern clinic rotations have been suspended until April 28, 2020 due to governmental restrictions, and to protect the safety of our students. Because the coronavirus situation is rapidly evolving, we expect this restriction to be extended into mid to late May. At this time, we recommend that students currently living outside of the Portland area continue their clinical training online and not travel back to Portland to attend clinic until we are officially cleared for intern rotations. The university will resume intern rotations when all restrictions have been lifted and when it is safe to do so.

Starting April 6, 2020, interns are participating in clinical internships through remote experiences. These carefully designed experiences will continue your clinical training and provide opportunities to ensure you continue to advance and meet all clinic requirements while COVID-19 restrictions are in place. Your attending physician and Dr. Stan Ewald are your contacts for more information on your clinical experiences.

Will the transition to online and the modification of the clinical experience impact my ability to graduate on time?

The timeline for a student’s graduation is dependent on a myriad of factors including the student’s GPA, completion of courses and achievement of clinical requirements.

Understanding the reality of these changed timelines due to COVID-19, we are working to focus on your mastery of competencies rather than a certain number of hours or adjustments. We are committed to helping you become a skilled practitioner and will work with you toward achieving competencies through virtual interactions as much as possible.

Patient care will still be an important part of your clinical education. We are actively implementing plans to have you continue your participation in patient care once restrictions have lifted.

Although we cannot guarantee that some students will not experience a delay in their graduation date, we are dedicated to working with each student to explore ways they meet their graduation requirements and stay on the same graduation timeline.
