Parents & Guardians Update

Dear PUC Families,

With so much going on during this unprecedented time, we know there is a lot of information for families to stay on top of. You will see an increase in communication from us to our PUC parents and guardians, but we are also working to simplify what you receive. The items included in this email are mostly COVID-19 related updates, but you can expect regular general updates, as well as other ways to stay in touch, going forward.

If you have any questions or need assistance with a request in the meantime, you can call the PUC hotline at (800) 862-7080. And you can always find the latest updates regarding campus operations related to COVID-19 on our dedicated site: puc.edu/coronavirus.

As you know, all on-campus classes have moved to remote and online learning for the rest of the school year. Along with this, our campus is closed to visitors until Shelter-at-Home Order restrictions have been lifted. Most faculty and staff are now working remotely, and the only people who should be on campus are employees who have been designated as essential and a small number of students who have been approved to stay in the Residence Halls. As much as we miss all of our PUC family, we are not able to welcome your students back until further notice, even for visits or to retrieve personal belongings.

An email went out last week for Residence Hall students that covered a lot of questions about retrieving or storing students' items from Residence HalI rooms, and is available on our COVID-19 page here: Residence Hall Move-Out Survey and FAQs

Also for residential students who are now off campus, a message recently went out from our Financial Administration regarding credits for room and meal plan charges. Understandably, this is a topic that receives a lot of questions so you can access the letter here: Student Financial Letter April 10.

For those of you with graduating seniors, rest assured that PUC remains committed to an on-campus commencement ceremony for your student when we are able to welcome everyone back to campus. We are disappointed that we will not be able to celebrate with you all in person on June 14, but we are in close contact with county officials and health professionals regarding the current guidelines, shelter-in-place orders, and event size regulations. We will have a date for you as soon as possible.
