We will ensure students, guests, faculty, and staff on the campus will continue to be COVID-free.

Should we worry about sharing the restroom at school?

The novel coronavirus is a respiratory virus most easily transmitted through coughing and sneezing. Follow acceptable sanitary practices — washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and not coughing or sneezing on your hands.


University Facilities is making the cleaning of high-touch areas the priority and has established defined cycles for disinfecting. Facilities continue to monitor the situation closely and follow recommendations from the RHU for higher education settings.

What are the plans for how classes will be offered?

We are currently engaged in planning for several contingencies for instruction.  Our goal is to ensure that we do all we can to maximize our students’ educational experiences. We firmly believe that the residential experience is an important part of our students’ growth and development. Our goal is to return to that model in a “health-and-safety” first way as soon as possible. As we make these decisions, we will engage our faculty members and learn from their experiences. We recognize that families need time to plan for the fall term.

Isn’t the quality of education going to suffer if I can’t come to campus?

CTU was an early innovator in online learning and alternative delivery. We have a great deal of expertise and will be essential to our professors across campus to offer you a quality experience while the world continues to change.


We’ve had to rethink the order in which some of the courses are offered so that those that must be done in-person can be offered later.


Courses will also continue to be offered by the same experienced faculty members that provide a high-quality education that prepares students to lead in an ever-changing world.

When will I know if my classes will be held in person or online?

Timing for when and how we can make our campus available will depend on the guidance we get from public health authorities. We will share more detailed information — including our plans for residences and other activities — as circumstances allow.

How will you ensure it’s safe to deliver courses in person?

We will ensure that any in-person class delivery adheres to the most up-to-date public health guidance.

What are the advantages of taking classes online?

Convenience and flexibility are the most common advantages of online classes. Taking classes online is ideal for someone who wants to continue working while earning a master’s degree. Online courses allow you to fit school into your schedule when it’s convenient for you.

How much time should I spend on one class every week?

The time you spend in a class can vary. No two instructors will format their classes the same. The number of credits per class varies by course.

Online classes are delivered using a learning management system. Students log into the LMS and can select their course sites. Once students are in their course site, they can access lectures, PowerPoint, emails, assignments, readings, documents, videos, links, discussion boards, their advisor, and the assignment dropbox.

What if my section is scheduled to be in-person and I’m unable to come back to campus?

We do not intend for any class to be designated solely in person. We are very aware that some students will not come back to campus for various reasons (family, medical, part-time job, etc.). Therefore, our faculty are planning classes with this in mind, and we will work with students to ensure they can fulfill their course requirements and have access to all content.

How will public spaces be cleaned and sanitized?

The cleanliness and safety of our spaces will be accomplished by increasing the level and frequency of cleaning for all buildings. This includes more frequent cleaning of high-touch surfaces throughout the day, giving special focus to additional daily cleaning of common areas and bathrooms, implementing special cleaning requirements for labs, and placing hand sanitizer stations at all building entrances and lobbies.

What if a class is held in person, and I do not feel comfortable attending?

Students who cannot attend in person or do not feel comfortable attending will complete their coursework online.

How will classes be structured to ensure safety (physical distancing)?

Classes are being configured to abide by the most current IATF guidelines regarding physical distancing. The result that lessons will have fewer students in them to allow for appropriate physical spacing. Faculty and students will also be required to use face coverings at all times while in classrooms.


What should I do if one of my students seems ill and is still attending class?

Privately check in with the student and suggest that they contact their respective RHU Health Service if they haven’t done so already.

What are the grading options for students unable to finish a class due to isolation/quarantine?

The options will depend on when the student becomes unable to participate, how much class time and coursework have been missed, and the nature of the course. At this time, we recommend proceeding as you usually would in similar situations, but faculty should consult with departmental and school-level leadership, as needed.

What precautions should I take when using shared office equipment, like a copier, fax machine, or paper shredder?

The likelihood of contracting a coronavirus from touching a surface is unlikely, and the risk of contracting it from shared office machines is no greater than any other surface you encounter outside of your home. 

Washing your hands after using shared office equipment or any other surface outside of your private office is a good practice, in general, to further reduce any risk.  Additionally, machines should be turned off and wiped down daily following the manufacturer’s guidance.


Will everyone be required to wear a face-covering while on campus?

All members of the CTU Danao Campus community are expected to provide their face coverings and will be required to wear face coverings that cover the mouth and nose at all times while on campus except for inside residence rooms, alone in their private offices, or outdoors in settings where they can maintain physical distance. In addition to wearing face coverings, all CTU Danao Campus community members are expected to exercise personal health precautions through frequent handwashing, maintaining a distance of six feet between others, monitoring their health daily, and seeking medical care if symptoms warrant.

What is the policy on physical distancing while on campus?

All CTU-Danao community members and any authorized contractors or visitors are expected to maintain a distance of 6 feet while on campus. The University has taken active steps to proactively establish conditions, wherever possible, in the residential, dining, and academic settings, to facilitate maintaining a distance of 6 feet.

How will policies on face coverings and physical distancing be enforced? Will there be consequences for students/staff/faculty who do not follow the protocol?

Our plan relies on the full understanding, support, and cooperation of every member of this academic community. We must view personal and social responsibility through the same prism and respect that one’s adherence to these guidelines will enhance the entire community’s safety and create an environment of community care. With this in mind, we have developed several mechanisms and educational training to remind people of the health and safety requirements and their role in ensuring our community stays safe. Anyone who disregards our guidelines and training efforts, thus putting others at risk, will be subject to University Code/Student Handbook provisions outlined for faculty, staff, and students.
