Your Safety

We can't wait to safely welcome you on campus. Learn more about how we're preparing for you and what guidelines we'll be following to keep our campus and community healthy.

General On-campus

  • Social Distancing. At least 6 feet is required, which isn't hard on our spacious campus. Adjustments are being made for dorms and other shared spaces.
  • Face Coverings. When distancing can't be guaranteed, face coverings will be required.
  • Daily Health Checks. Temperature checks and a quick health survey every day will help ensure a healthy campus.

Dining Commons

We've made some positive changes for your safety, including:

  • Removing tables and chairs to prevent people from congregating in the dining areas
  • Adding floor decals to take the guessing out of social distancing
  • Enforcing handwashing and station disinfecting protocols every 30 minutes
  • Eliminating any self-serving station...let us take care of it for you!
  • Adding more sneeze guards to keep you (and us) safe
  • Taking temperatures of our staff at the beginning of each shift
  • Making sure all of our associates are wearing face coverings
  • Switching over to disposable plates, bowls, and individually wrapped utensils
  • Offering utensils to each guest individually
  • Placing hand-sanitizer dispensers throughout the café
  • Going cashless to limit contact between you and our cashiers
  • Individually packaging additional grab & go items such as desserts, whole fruit, baked goods, etc.
  • Offering individual portions of condiments

Your Academic Experience

While some things will be different this fall, what won't change is our focus on providing you an excellent education. Learn more about what changes you can expect.

  • Updated Academic Calendar. On-campus classes now start on September 14 and winter break begins at Thanksgiving. See full calendar.
  • Prepared Faculty. Faculty will be trained to deliver courses using higher education best practices during COVID restrictions. 
  • Classroom Preparation. Adjustments are being made to classroom capacity, physical spacing, and cleaning schedules to make sure you stay safe while you learn.
  • Technology Solutions. Online instruction and other solutions will help bridge the gap for those who can't be in the classroom.

International Students Fall 2020

Pacific Union College is dedicated to our international students and to the protection of their student visa legal status. We will meet all Homeland Security requirements to operate as an approved hybrid on-site campus for Fall 2020. 

International students can feel secure that continuous adjustments will be made as government policy changes throughout the upcoming year. Based on new government policy, all returning and new international students attending Pacific Union College this fall will receive a new, approved I-20 from the International Student office.
