Your Top 5

As we face these unprecedented challenges related to Covid-19 together, please know that the St. Edward’s University community is committed to giving you the support that you need. We curated this quick list (called Your Top 5) just for you. These are the key things you need to know (and do) this month to help you plan for the fall semester.

Register for the Academic Webinar

Your professors are excited to welcome you to the classroom this fall! Faculty excel at teaching, and they have spent the summer planning for personalized and engaging courses. Register for the Academic Experience webinar on Wednesday, July 29 at 5:30 p.m. CST to hear from processors about the fall academic experience. 

Watch Our Housing Webinar

We are looking forward to seeing students back on campus in a few short weeks. In the meantime, we encourage you to watch last week's webinar detailing everything you need to know about on-campus housing for 2020–2021. If you have questions, visit Healthy Hilltop to find more information on how campus is adapting to the new norm. 

Sign Up to Move In to On-Campus Housing

Sign-ups for a date and time to move-in to your residential community have now expired, if you have any questions please contact Residence Life where they will assign you a move-in time. Learn more about the move-in process.

3 Steps for a Safe Return to Campus

Students and employees are being asked to complete three steps before returning to campus in August. Learn more about online Covid-19 training, baseline Covid-19 testing and daily symptom checking. All of these things are critical to keeping you and our hilltop community safe and healthy.

Introducing our New Podcast

We’re bringing SEU to You, a new mini-podcast, in which professors give you a sneak peek into their thinking for their classes. Even if your exact courses aren’t highlighted, this should give you an idea of what remote and in-person instruction will be like in the fall. We encourage you to follow along.

BONUS: Tuition Insurance

Tuition insurance now covers claims for withdrawal due to Covid-19. If interested in purchasing protection, visit GradGuard. We recommend purchasing the Tuition Protection Plan, especially in light of Covid-19. This expands the scope of our refund policy by offering reimbursement for tuition and other required fees due to covered withdrawals. The deadline to purchase is Aug. 23.

Rise Up: A Vigil for Racial Justice and Call for Solidarity

St. Edward’s University embraces the Black Lives Matter movement and stands in solidarity with those seeking justice. The university recently held a vigil, Rise Up, to memorialize George Floyd and other members of the Black community who have been unjustly killed by police officers. If you were unable to attend, or you participated and wish to view again, see the recording.
