Surviving COVID-19 in '21

Were you glad to see the end of 2020? Covid-19 forced us to change our way of life. No more handshakes, hugs, or standing next to another person. Those of you who play basketball or are a fan of the sport may be familiar with the 3 feet defensive stance. Who would have thought that everyone in the world would take up the defensive position? Keeping with the basketball analogy, during 2021, we want everyone to take a defensive and offensive position. Offensive as in taking a position to score and win against Covid-19. We encourage everyone to continue the guidance from the Center for Disease Control. Here is our game plan for 2021:



A: Contact Student Assistance in the Office of the Dean of Students at deanofstudents@gsu.edu for help with contacting and coordinating accommodations with your faculty and/or campus employer.
A: Contact the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS) at deanofstudents@gsu.edu to schedule a call/virtual meeting with the DOS within 48 hours (the sooner the better); you may not return to class until notified via email by the ODOS that you are cleared to return. The ODOS will have a conversation with you and if you agree to comply with the face covering requirement going forward, then you will be cleared to return to class.
A: Email deanofstudents@gsu.edu and you will receive further instructions.
A: Contact the person who assigned the requirement to discuss alternative methods for completion. If you are unsure who to contact, email deanofstudents@gsu.edu. Online options are available to satisfy all requirements.
A: Information about Student Assistance through the Office of the Dean of Students is available on the Student Assistance site and you can connect with our staff virtually to review your circumstances and discuss what resources may be available to assist.

Dean's Certification Request

A Dean’s Certification is a letter of clearance verifying your prior (if applicable) disciplinary conduct. These letters are usually required by graduate/professional schools, state bar associations, government agencies, etc. when applying for admission or employment. These institutions will provide you with a release form to sign and have the Dean of Students office to complete.
