COVID-19 Resources for Undergraduate Students
Physically distant. Socially and globally connected.
This year UConn CLAS students face new challenges, like online learning and following COVID-19 safety guidelines. The resources below are available to help you adapt to these changes and make the most of this unprecedented learning experience.
Academic advising in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is coordinated by the CLAS Academic Services Center. For questions related to your major, your degree requirements, or registering for courses, please make an appointment with the Center or meet with your assigned advisor. A representative in the Center can also provide you with a dean's signature for academic forms.
Starting in the fall of 2020, most students will take classes in different modes. Some will be in person, some will be virtual at set times, and others will be entirely online. UConn's Online Students website offers resouces for online learning, which can help you set up your learning environment and communicate with your course instructors.
This site also lists academic support resources, including information about online tutoring in writing and mathematics.
The Academic Achievement Center helps students adjust to the university setting and reach their personal and academic goals. Visit the Academic Achievement Center's website for online resources and tips for how to manage your time, take notes, prepare for exams, and develop strategies for deeper learning.
Connect with Students
U-Kindness is a University-wide initiative that aims to inform, engage, and connect UConn students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its website offers information about in-person and virtual programming, including clubs and organizations; tips for quarantine and staying healthy; and opportunities to chat with other students about how to get involved on campus.

Health and Wellness

Students with Disabilities
The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) engages in an interactive process with each student and determine appropriate accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case, class-by-class basis. The Center's website provides guidance on how to request new accommodations through the CSD and how to work with your instructors to coordinate approved accommodations in the online environment.
Learning through Husky CT
HuskyCT, UConn's learning management system, is where your professors will teach most of your courses and keep most of your course materials.
