As PNW prepares for a Safe Return to Campus in Fall 2020, see the steps you can take for a smooth, safe start with our return to campus checklist for students.

Steps to Take

  • Have you checked your schedule and know the instructional method (course format) for each of your courses? If you have any questions please reach out to your advisor. You can learn more about the four types of course formats and preparing for fall semester in the recent message from Provost Holford.
  • Have you logged into Brightspace to read through your syllabus and any additional communication from your instructors?
  • Do you have your face coverings? PNW will provide two face coverings for every student that can be picked up during Welcome Week. If you miss the Pride Pick-up events and do not receive your PNW face coverings by the end of the first week of classes, please contact
  • Have you completed the COVID-19 Training located in Brightspace? Please log in and complete before the first day of classes on August 24.
  • Have you downloaded the PNW mobile app?
  • Have you completed the PNW Daily Self Screen located in the PNW Mobile App or directly at this link?
