Frequently asked questions for students

What steps do I need to take if I decide to stay home or return home for remote learning during the spring 2021 semester?

Here is a checklist to help you with the process.

  • Verify that all of your classes are “remote friendly.” Please make sure to let each of your faculty know of your intentions to study remotely. Keep in mind faculty are not expected to accommodate students for courses not designated as remote friendly, though some may be willing to do so.     
  • If any of your courses are not remote friendly, contact your academic unit to explore your options. Academic unit information is as follows:

College of Arts and Sciences dean's office: casdean@udayton.edu

School of Business Administration dean's office: sbadean@udayton.edu

School of Education and Health Sciences: sehs_deansoffice@udayton.edu

School of Engineering: SoEAdvisingOffice@udayton

School of Law: Lee Ann Ross, lross1@udayton.edu

During your discussion, you and an advisor will decide the best options for you.

You will be asked to sign into the site. Click the link at the upper left hand corner to complete “Spring 2021 Learning Survey.” This will update your status in your class rosters and inform Housing and Residence Life and Dining Services of your intent to learn remotely off campus for the spring semester. A representative from Housing and Residence Life will be in touch to assist you with the process to vacate your residence and process your refund or credit.

  • If you intend to return to on-campus living for the fall 2021 semester, watch your email for information during the spring 2021 semester about applying for housing and registering for housing.

Will‌ ‌I‌ ‌receive‌ ‌a‌ ‌tuition‌ ‌refund?‌ 

If you decide to study remotely or if the University makes the difficult decision or is required to go completely online

Because‌ ‌UD's‌ ‌fixed‌ ‌costs‌ ‌—‌ ‌first‌ ‌and‌ ‌foremost‌ ‌faculty‌ ‌and‌ ‌staff‌ ‌salaries‌ ‌—‌ ‌do‌ ‌not‌ ‌change‌ ‌based‌ ‌on‌ ‌whether‌ ‌the‌ ‌course‌ ‌is‌ ‌offered‌ ‌online,‌ ‌in-person‌ ‌or‌ ‌blended,‌ ‌tuition‌ ‌costs‌ ‌will‌ ‌not‌ ‌be‌ ‌discounted‌ ‌based‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌modality,‌ including ‌‌if‌ ‌we‌ ‌make the difficult decision or public health authorities mandate the university to‌ ‌go‌ ‌completely‌ ‌online.‌ ‌ ‌

If you withdraw before the start of the spring 2021 semester

Any spring term registration changes prior to the start of the spring semester on Jan. 19 can be made without students incurring any expense.

If you withdraw during the semester

The University’s refund schedule for spring 2021 is available online and any adjustments will be announced and updated on the website. If a student withdraws completely from UD after the full tuition refund deadline, tuition will be adjusted according to the University’s refund schedule. Financial aid eligibility will be adjusted based on the number of days the student is enrolled during the spring semester.  

If‌ ‌I‌ ‌voluntarily‌ ‌leave‌ ‌campus‌ ‌to‌ ‌study‌ ‌remotely,‌ or if‌ ‌the‌ ‌University‌ makes an unscheduled decision to ‌send ‌all‌ ‌students‌ ‌home‌ ‌to‌ ‌study‌ ‌remotely‌ ‌due‌ ‌to‌ ‌the‌ ‌pandemic,‌ ‌how‌ ‌will‌ ‌I‌ ‌be‌ ‌charged‌ ‌for‌ ‌housing‌, ‌dining and parking?‌

  • Housing -  The amount of any housing credits will be determined by the University and will typically be processed within 14 business days after a student completes the checkout process with Housing and Residence Life. A credit is issued on the student account and viewable on the monthly billing statement. The‌ ‌penalty ‌of‌ ‌75%‌ ‌stated in the housing contract will‌ ‌be‌ ‌waived.‌ ‌
  • Dining - The administrative fee of $925 from the flex meal plan will be prorated based on the number of days you occupied your residence. The standard plan will be prorated for the daily meal equivalency ($22.75) of the remaining unused days in the semester. Neighborhood meal plan balances will roll forward to the next semester and will be available to use when students return to campus. The credit is issued on the student account and viewable on the monthly billing statement. To check the student balance for meal plans the student can go through their GET app or through the web at get.cbord.com. More information on dining refunds can be found here.
  • Students‌ ‌and‌ ‌families‌ who qualify for a credit also ‌have‌ ‌the‌ ‌option‌ ‌of‌ ‌receiving‌ ‌a‌ ‌refund‌ ‌for housing and dining. If you wish to have a refund, rather than a credit to your account, please contact studentaccounts@udayton.edu.
  • Parking - As parking costs are fixed for necessary maintenance and repair, parking fees will not be refunded.
  • Tuition - Because‌ ‌UD's‌ ‌fixed‌ ‌costs‌ ‌—‌ ‌first‌ ‌and‌ ‌foremost‌ ‌faculty‌ ‌and‌ ‌staff‌ ‌salaries‌ ‌—‌ ‌do‌ ‌not‌ ‌change‌ ‌based‌ ‌on‌ ‌whether‌ ‌the‌ ‌course‌ ‌is‌ ‌offered‌ ‌online,‌ ‌in-person‌ ‌or‌ ‌blended,‌ ‌tuition‌ ‌costs‌ ‌will‌ ‌not‌ ‌be‌ ‌discounted‌ ‌based‌ ‌on‌ ‌the‌ ‌modality,‌ including ‌‌if‌ ‌we‌ ‌make the difficult decision to‌ ‌go‌ ‌completely‌ ‌online.‌ 

If I do withdraw for the spring 2021 semester, do I have the option to return for the following semester?

If you intend to return for summer 2021 term or fall 2021 semester, please specify your return plans in the non-returning student form in Porches. A representative from Housing and Residence Life will be in touch to assist you with the process to vacate your residence and process your refund or credit. Contact housing and your dean's office when you are ready to register for the next semester.

Unit contacts are:

School of Education and Health Sciences: sehs_deansoffice@udayton.edu

School of Engineering: ​SoEAdvisingOffice@udayton.edu

School of Law: Lee Ann Ross 

Will‌ ‌refunds‌ ‌or‌ ‌credits‌ ‌for‌ ‌housing‌ ‌and‌ ‌dining ‌be‌ ‌given‌ ‌if‌ ‌students‌ ‌have‌ ‌to‌ ‌leave‌ ‌campus‌ ‌for‌ ‌behavioral‌ ‌reasons?‌

If‌ ‌a‌ ‌student‌ ‌is‌ ‌forced‌ ‌to‌ ‌leave‌ ‌campus‌ ‌for‌ ‌behavioral‌ ‌reasons,‌ ‌including‌ ‌failing‌ ‌to‌ ‌cooperate‌ ‌fully‌ ‌with‌ ‌the‌ ‌University’s‌ ‌safety‌ ‌protocols‌, contact tracers, ‌or‌ ‌orders‌ ‌of‌ ‌health‌ ‌officials,‌ ‌there will be ‌no‌ ‌refunds‌ ‌or‌ ‌credits‌ ‌for‌ ‌housing‌ ‌or‌ ‌dining.‌ ‌ ‌

I'm not moving into my University residence until the end of the spring semester arrival window. Will I receive a credit or refund for the two weeks I was not on campus?

According to the student housing contract, the housing fee is set on the academic year rather than days of occupancy. Conversely, if students occupy University housing longer than the usual term of the semester for any reason, they will not incur additional charges.

Are‌ ‌students‌ ‌and‌ ‌families‌ ‌incurring‌ ‌the‌ ‌costs‌ ‌of‌ ‌pandemic-related‌ ‌health‌ ‌and‌ ‌safety‌ ‌measures‌ ‌at‌ ‌UD?‌

These‌ ‌additional‌ ‌costs‌ ‌are‌ ‌NOT‌ ‌being‌ ‌passed‌ on ‌to‌ ‌students‌ ‌and‌ ‌families.‌ ‌The‌ ‌University‌ ‌is‌ ‌experiencing‌ ‌significant‌ ‌additional‌ ‌costs‌ ‌in‌ ‌modifying‌ ‌and‌ ‌equipping‌ ‌rooms‌ ‌and‌ ‌buildings‌ ‌for‌ ‌physical‌ ‌distancing,‌ ‌purchasing‌ ‌equipment‌ ‌and‌ ‌supplies‌ ‌to‌ ‌clean‌ ‌and‌ ‌disinfect‌ ‌University‌ ‌facilities,‌ ‌making‌ ‌technology‌ ‌modifications‌ ‌and‌ ‌enhancements‌ ‌for‌ ‌varied‌ ‌teaching modalities,‌ ‌and‌ ‌addressing‌ ‌increased‌ ‌demand‌s ‌for‌ ‌medical‌ ‌services.‌ The‌ ‌pandemic‌ ‌has‌ ‌adversely‌ ‌affected‌ ‌some‌ ‌families'‌ ‌financial‌ ‌situations‌, ‌and‌ ‌UD‌ ‌is‌ ‌responding‌ ‌by‌ ‌providing‌ ‌record‌ ‌levels‌ ‌of‌ ‌need-based‌ ‌financial‌ ‌aid,‌ ‌significantly‌ ‌beyond‌ ‌what‌ ‌was ‌originally‌ ‌budgeted.‌ ‌We‌ ‌are‌ ‌continuing‌ ‌to‌ ‌work‌ ‌with‌ ‌families‌ ‌with‌ ‌financial‌ ‌need‌ ‌or‌ ‌other‌ ‌special‌ ‌circumstances.‌ 


How will my courses be delivered?

FAQs on course modality are available online.

All undergraduate classes for the spring 2021 semester began online Jan. 19-31, with in-person components of all relevant courses, as communicated in the spring term composite, beginning Feb. 1 (if conditions permit). As arrival to campus will be phased, most students will study online away from campus for the first part of these two weeks and on campus for the remainder.

How can I access library resources?

The Libraries' website and research guides provide online access to materials, including e-books, journal articles, primary sources and more for all members of the UD community. Students can contact the library for remote guidance via email, text, chat or Zoom meeting. Click here for contact information. More information is available on the Libraries’ website.

Will tutoring, supplemental instruction, and other systems of learning support continue to be offered?

Tutoring, supplemental instruction, writing support through the Write Place, Global Learning Support, and academic coaching will continue to be offered through the Office of Learning Resources (OLR), though with some variation due to the remote environment. Students should be able to schedule most services through the Student Success Network (SSN). OLR will keep its website updated with the most current information. Please email questions to learningresources@udayton.edu, and OLR staff will respond as soon as possible within normal business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. ET).

Will remote education impact academic integrity?

UD has long experience with online learning. We have not seen evidence that online environments are less effective than traditional classrooms in advancing student learning. That finding is also supported by a great deal of research that has been conducted nationwide over the past decade. 

How can I get drop/add forms signed?

From your UD email account, email your add/drop request to your dean’s office. Copy your instructor(s) and advisor on your email. In the subject line, please enter your student ID # and your academic major. In the body of your message please be sure to indicate specific course details: class name, subject, course number, section number. Your dean’s office will review the request and, once approved, will forward it to Flyer Student Services for processing.

What is the deadline for withdrawing from a class for spring semester 2021?

The deadlines to drop classes for the semester are as follows:

  • Tuesday, Feb. 9: Last day to drop classes without record
  • Tuesday, April 13: Last day to drop classes with record of W 

Decisions about course withdrawal should be made in consultation with your academic advisors and professors. It is a requirement you consult with your advisor and professor if you are considering withdrawing from a course. Course withdrawals can affect your progress to your degree, including the courses you are able to take in spring term.

What is the deadline for deciding to take a class pass/fail in spring semester 2021?

The deadline for students to change their courses to grading Option 2 (pass/fail) was Friday, Jan. 29. However, the deadline for course registration and other schedule changes has not changed. That deadline was Monday, Jan. 25. Regarding grading Option 2 (pass/fail), please remember that CAP courses cannot be taken under Option 2; a letter grade is required. Additionally, individual academic programs will also have restrictions regarding which classes can be taken under Option 2. Information regarding grading options can be found in the student handbook. If you are considering Option 2, you must speak with your academic advisor or assistant dean as soon as possible and prior to the Jan. 29 deadline so that you can make a well informed decision.

Can research continue?

Research activities that cannot be delayed, cannot be conducted remotely, and that abide strictly by public health protocols for social distancing may continue. There should be no direct contact with human subjects in research; all contact with human subjects should be remote. Click here for additional information about conducting research during the COVID-19 pandemic. Questions about appropriate student research activities during this time should be directed to your professor or adviser.

How do I contact my professors?

Email is the first choice. Watch your class Isidore site for updates and announcements. Your professor is very likely to be using your UD email address when contacting you.

Do I have to "go to class" at the scheduled time?

Each professor will decide how their class time will work. It is critical that you watch your class Isidore site and your email for updates and announcements. Contact your professors individually with any questions.

I’m in a different time zone than UD. How can I make that work?

Make sure you let the people you're communicating with know what time zone you’re in so they can make adjustments when possible. It will not normally be possible to deliver the same course section at multiple times, however.

What if I have a question not addressed here?

Please contact your professors and academic advisors for guidance. 


Does this decision affect degree programs that already are offered online?

Online degree programs, such as MBA@Dayton, Law@Dayton, the Doctor of Education (EdD) in Leadership for Organizations, and others offered in partnership with 2U or developed in-house will continue uninterrupted on their standard academic schedules.

Can research continue?

Research activities that cannot be delayed, cannot be conducted remotely, and that abide strictly by public health protocols for social distancing may continue. There should be no direct contact with human subjects in research; all contact with human subjects should be remote.

Should graduate assistants continue their work?

Yes. Graduate assistants (GAs) are employees, as well as students, and should continue to carry out their responsibilities, where they can do so safely. In most cases, GAs will be working remotely. If they have questions about the safety of their work areas or their work assignments, they should raise these with their supervisors. Supervisors should be sensitive to and understanding of concerns or anxieties that GAs have in current circumstances. While GAs should expect to continue their normal weekly work schedule, they should understand that emerging circumstances might alter their work assignments.

Where GAs have responsibilities to teach classes or labs or to assist in other instructional functions, they should carry out those activities remotely, in accordance with the guidance of their supervisors. Where GAs have research responsibilities, they should continue to carry them out, where they can do so safely. Where GAs are assigned responsibilities in offices outside of academic units (e.g., in Student Development or Campus Ministry), they should continue to carry out their work assignments, where feasible. If their normal work cannot be done under current campus conditions, they should be assigned other responsibilities by the offices that employ them, so long as those other responsibilities can be performed safely.

Can I still submit my thesis/dissertation for formatting review?

Yes. Theses and dissertations ready to be submitted to Graduate Academic Affairs (GAA) for formatting review must be submitted electronically as usual. GAA staff who are working remotely will continue to review theses and dissertations in a timely fashion. See the GAA Porches page for details and deadlines. 

Will I still be able to receive bound copies of my thesis or dissertation? 

Yes. St. Mary's Hall is currently closed to all parties who do not work in the building. When full access to campus returns, we will be able to accept hard copies of theses/dissertations for binding. It is likely that there will be a delay in submitting documents for binding, but bound thesis/dissertation copies will be available to all who wish to obtain them.

Can I still defend my thesis this semester?

Thesis/dissertation defenses can and should continue to take place either in-person following social distancing procedures (at least 6 feet separation between individuals) or via Zoom. Contact your advisor to make the appropriate arrangements. UDit can help with arrangements, especially document sharing; e.g., PowerPoint slides.

Will the University be renewing or hiring graduate assistants for the coming year? 

GAs with questions about their individual situations should discuss those with their supervisors and program directors. 

What if I have a question not addressed here?

Please contact your professors, program director and academic advisors for guidance.


Information on study spaces on campus

Now that the University is beginning to hold some classes in person, students have requested we provide spaces other than their residences to study and participate in online class sessions.


General Bookstore Info; Info about books can be found below

The Bookstore is open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays; no appointment is required.  Customers can enter through the main entrance. Please follow public health guidelines, especially with face coverings and physical distancing. Access is restricted to the restrooms and the rest of Marianist Hall. 

Flyer Spirit is open weekends from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (appointment preferred). Make an appointment here.

Hours may vary at all locations during breaks and holidays.

Stores will not accept cash. Customers may purchase items with credit card, Flyer Express, textbook scholarship or student account, or shop online anytime at https://shop.udayton.edu/. 

For more detailed information, visit the blog on the bookstore website or email bookstore@udayton.edu.  

Can I sell back books?

See FAQs about the bookstore buyback program here.

Will we be able to rent books this year?

Because of the challenges of returning books, the Bookstore moved to a new model, pausing the rental program for the 2020-21 academic year. This decision was reviewed and approved by the Provost's Council. Digital materials have been selected for many courses to alleviate this situation. There are 70 Complete Digital Access (CDA) courses, with an additional 650 courses having an available digital option.

For the 2020-21 academic year, students using the textbook scholarship will be encouraged to purchase access to the digital textbooks and materials for their courses whenever possible.

In most cases, the digital pricing is comparable to the rental fee for a textbook. Students who prefer to work from a hard copy of materials are able to purchase a low-cost, loose-leaf version of the text to accompany the digital content. Print versions, both used and new, also will be available. During this pause in the rental program, the textbook scholarship may be used for digital and print options. Students who purchase the digital text and materials will be given an access code and URL where they can access their materials.

If you have questions, please contact Julie Banks, director of retail operations, at jbanks1@udayton.edu or the bookstore at bookstore@udayton.edu.


Recognizing that travel can contribute to the University's teaching, learning, research and reputation efforts, new guidelines for travel during the pandemic will apply for the fall semester to help guide faculty, staff and students as they plan activities involving travel.

The UD integrated travel system for university travel, individual or group, can be found here. All travel should be approved in the system prior to making travel plans. Since travel is limited to essential only due to Covid 19 and budget restrictions, travelers are encouraged to contact travel@udayton.edu with any questions. When normal travel resumes, trainings and additional information for campus will be made available. 


Students may leave campus for off-campus jobs and -- in accordance with UD experiential learning guidelines -- for paid employment positions sought out by students independently including practicums, co-ops and internshipsWe expect students to follow their employers' COVID-19 protocols and be especially vigilant in observing UD's safety protocols -- physical distancing, avoid large gatherings, face coverings, hand washing -- both on and off campus. Students working off-campus also are encouraged to communicate with roommates in their community living agreement so their roommates are aware of and have an understanding about their off-campus jobs. Following these practices not only helps reduce the risk of spreading the virus to campus, but also helps protect colleagues, co-workers and customers at your job site. 


Visit the career services page here.

For quick responses about job offers and salary negotiations, email careerservices@udayton.edu


How do I cancel my room and board/does it happen automatically after I fill out the survey about how I plan to study? 

Students can email the housing inbox at housing@udayton.edu or complete the housing cancellation form found at the following link.   

If I want to return to campus next semester, will I be able to live on campus?

Students who return to campus in the spring can live in university housing, provided there is space available. 

Will I be able to have my same roommate next semester?

Housing and Residence life cannot hold a space for any student who has been released from their housing contract, as those spaces will be needed for other students. 

Is there a cancellation charge if I decide to study remotely?

There is no cancellation fee if the student has not moved into their assignment. Should a student move into their assignment and decide to study remotely, they will pay the cancellation fee according to the cancellation fee schedule in the 2020-2021 housing contract.  

Is my financial aid impacted if I complete my study remotely from home?

Financial aid could be impacted because living off campus affects the “cost of attendance” on which some aid is based. For specific questions, you can contact financial aid by email at finaid@udayton.edu.


Undergraduate summer 2021 tuition will be $875 per credit hour, a 46% reduction from the original published rate for undergraduate courses.
