Welcome back to campus! We hope your fall term is starting off well!
All of our ground Campuses executed their Campus Re-opening Plans this week under a hybrid shift with limited on campus and online schedules and reduced class sizes. Our campus re-opening plans included feedback from you (our students) and our faculty and staff regarding the measures implemented to ensure your success and safety.
All students attending on campus are required to complete a COVID-19 Pandemic Social Contract. Your actions play an integral role in your health and safety, as well as others while on campus. We appreciate you doing your part in ensuring the following are adhered to while on campus to help prevent the spread of the virus:
- Wear a facemask as required;
- Respect personal space and practice social distancing;
- Upon arriving at the campus, have my temperature taken and I understand if my temperature is above 100.3, I will not be admitted to campus and will need to contact my Dean/Campus Vice President;
- Practice good hygiene that includes frequent handwashing;
- Be aware of mitigating surface contact with doors, railings, and other high contact areas;
- Complete a self-assessment each day before I come to campus;
- Self-monitor daily. If I exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, stay home and inform the University.
In closing this has been a historical year filled with many challenges for each and every one of you, and despite all of this you are still moving forward towards achieving your academic goal of graduating! This is commendable and our EU team remains committed to supporting you should you need assistance!
Have an outstanding term and we are happy to have you back on our campuses. Stay safe and be successful!
All the best,

We hope your July term is starting off well!
We wanted to thank all of you who participated in our return to campus survey. We appreciated your feedback. For the past several months our team has been diligently working on our plan to re-open ground campuses for the fall schedule. We have been preparing the EU campus facilities for reopening and taking the appropriate measures to ensure social distancing guidelines per the CDC requirements as well as state and local requirements are in place prior to your returning to campus.
We are planning for adjusted on-site schedules which will include hybrid and limited class sizes for the fall, August 31, 2020 term. Students should contact their academic advisors for more information. Ground campus students who wish to remain online will also have that option.
Anyone on campus must observe social distancing and wear a face mask. All individuals permitted on campus are required to have a daily temperature check and those exceeding CDC guidelines will need to seek appropriate health care support. Additionally per CDC guidelines frequent thorough hand washing and or the use of hand sanitizer are recommended. These measures are crucial to help prevent the spread of the virus.
In closing should you need additional assistance or if you or your family have been impacted by COVID 19 please contact your campus. Our team is here to support you as we navigate this situation.
Have an excellent July term!
All the best,

We hope your June term is off to a great start!
As the state of Florida continues its phases to re-open we continue to monitor the situation. Our Academic team is currently working diligently on a plan for each campus to prepare for fall classes resuming on site that we hope will be able to be executed. We are monitoring the Governor’s orders daily.
We have been preparing the EU campus facilities for reopening classes and are taking the appropriate measures to ensure social distancing guidelines per the CDC requirements are in place prior to your returning to campus. We look forward to seeing our on campus students soon!
We realize this situation has been stressful for ALL of our students both on campus and virtual and we applaud you for hanging in there and not giving up during this difficult time. Additionally we were happy to be able to award over 622 CARES Act (COVID-19) Student Aid Grants to our on campus students who were impacted by COVID 19, we hope this extra support helped you.
In closing please let us know if you need our support. Our academic advisors, librarians, faculty, students services, admissions and financial aid departments are all open and available to provide assistance to you.
Have a great term!
