Student and Academic Support
Academics During Quarantine or Isolation
All students should continue to do work in their classes during the quarantine or isolation period, unless they are too sick to do so. For any classes that are in-person, students should notify their instructors that they have been asked to isolate or quarantine. Any absence from in-person class activity due to illness, any symptoms of illness, or precautionary self-quarantine will be excused. This means that students will not face academic penalty for such absences, and instead, faculty will provide students with alternative work or ways to engage with the class while they are out.
The full attendance policy is included in the Student Handbook and SAIC Bulletin and covered during New Student Orientation events.
Support During Quarantine or Isolation
If you are asked to isolate or quarantine, and you live in a residence hall, an SAIC staff member will provide you with their contact information should you need additional assistance.
During a quarantine or isolation period, we recommend utilizing a grocery delivery service such as Amazon Fresh, Shipt, or Instacart. Many grocery stores or pharmacies will let you order directly from them for delivery as well.
