Return to Campus

Oakton is implementing a phased-in return-to-campus approach that prioritizes the health and safety of our students and employees. The procedures align with state and local regulations and are subject to change.

Overview

During the fall 2020 semester, Campus access is limited to those with scheduled classes or appointments, and employees approved to be on campus.

Employees, students and visitors must complete a daily electronic screening form before entering campus. Registered students and employees should use this form, located in the myOakton portal. Visitors and non-registered students will receive a form by email after scheduling an on-campus appointment.

DO NOT COME TO CAMPUS IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY COVID-19 SYMPTOMS (Full symptom list at CDC.gov), OR IF YOU HAVE HAD CLOSE CONTACT WITH A PERSON DIAGNOSED WITH COVID-19 WITHIN THE PAST 14 DAYS.

Students and employees are encouraged to wear their Oakton ID. Employees may also wear their Oakton employee name badge.

Most fall 2020 credit courses will take place online. A limited number of lab and studio classes will take place on campus, including career technical education and health career courses, with increased safety precautions. Some classes have both classroom and online components.

All fall 2020 noncredit Continuing Education, Training, and Workforce Development classes (adult education, Emeritus, English as a Second Language, GED, Continuing Education for Health Professionals) will be online.

Limited in-person student services are available, by appointment. Appointments must be scheduled in advance. Remote student services are also available.

Face masks, frequent hand washing and physical distancing are required on campus. Observe all posted capacity limits in rooms, elevators, and any other spaces.

Increased daily campus cleaning will be implemented by college facilities personnel. 

Early Childhood Center (daycare), campus rentals, the Performance Arts Center and Koehnline Museum exhibits are suspended through the fall 2020 semester. No student activities, clubs or athletic events will take place on campus until further notice. 

Employees in need of COVID-19 accommodations (sick leave, childcare, vulnerable populations) should work with their supervisors in consultation with Human Resources.
