CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATES

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Updates

Updated Januay 15, 2021

SEMINARY CAMPUS CLOSED

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Seminary's campus is currently closed. We will continue to study various data-points and information at local, state, and national levels, while still basing our decision-making to reopen the campus on our three guiding principles: care for whole persons and the community, quality and equitable education, and responsible stewardship of our resources.

The Leadership Team will continue to assess the current situation and you can anticipate updates on the Garrett COVID-19 webpage. In an effort to centralize communication at this time, all questions related to the campus closing and the seminary’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) should be directed to CampusSafety@Garrett.edu.

We urge our beloved seminary community to care for their whole selves during this time and to follow the guidelines provided by the CDC. Finally, we join with so many around the world in prayer for those who have already been diagnosed with COVID-19, for our healthcare workers, and others at a high-risk.

Health Tips and COVID-19 Resources

Health Tips, Information, and Ways to Care for Yourself

Social Distancing
The CDC defines social distancing as “remaining out of congregate settings, avoiding mass gatherings and maintaining distance (approximately 6 feet) from others when possible.” In general, it means limiting the number of people in close proximity to each other at any given time. All members of the Seminary community are strongly encouraged to practice social distancing.

Counseling Services for Students
Six free counseling sessions: If you are a current student and feeling the need for professional counseling, the seminary will provide up to six free counseling sessions. The first step in the process is for the student to download the Counseling Center Verification Form (available on myGETS). The next step in the referral process is to contact Dean Reynolds, (312) 780-9228, to procure a digital signature on the Counseling Center Verification Form. A list of professional counselors is available on myGETS, along with a picture and short introduction of the scope of the work and practices of the provider. Choose a provider from the list of Pastoral Counselors in the Chicago Area and set up an appointment. Take the Counseling Center Verification Form (with the requisite signature from Dean Reynolds) with you to your first session. If the student encounters problems, they should notify Dean Reynolds as soon as possible. An additional option is for students to contact outside counselors at their own expense.

Student Chaplain
During this time, Chaplain Karen Mosby will remain available via her Garrett email (karen.mosby@garrett.edu) and will be checking her email throughout the day. Students may continue to contact Chaplain Mosby by email to schedule a time to talk by phone or in person. If immediate assistance is needed by phone, she can be reached at (224) 656-4608. 

Employee Assistance Program for Faculty and Staff
Garrett faculty, staff, adjunct faculty, student workers and their spouses and children have access to our Employee Assistance Program provided by Perspectives. This service provides six free in-person or now telehealth counseling services. To find out how to access this benefit, visit the Employee Assistance Program page on myGETS.

If You Have Been Diagnosed With COVID-19

If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, please complete this form. Your form will only be accessible by Erin Moore, assistant vice president for human resources. Once she receives your form, she will be in touch with you to gather additional information, if needed. If a faculty, staff, or student member of the community has been on campus in the last 14 days prior to their diagnosis then Erin will send notice to the community about the person’s whereabout on campus. Unless the person diagnosed with COVID-19 gives their permission to share their name, any communication to the community about the case will not include the person’s name.

Self-Isolation Policy

General Self-Isolation Policy

Garrett expects that all students, faculty, and staff returning to the Seminary or coming for the first time who have traveled (domestically or internationally), attended gatherings where social distancing practices were not followed, or who have been exposed to the Coronavirus—will self-isolate for 14 days prior to coming to campus. At this time, the Seminary will not allow visitors to campus (non-employee, non-student).

Information for Prospective and Current Students, Faculty, and Staff

Courses: J-Term and Spring 2021 Semesters

All classes for the Spring 2021 semester will meet in alternative formats to face-to-face meetings. The Dean’s Office, in coordination with IT and faculty leadership, will offer guidance to instructors (residential, affiliates/adjuncts, teaching assistants) on how to convert their courses to alternative formats—from synchronous/asynchronous online engagement to “low-tech” modalities to ensure maximal accessibility for all.

Instructors are encouraged to design alternative formats that serve the purposes of their courses. Please submit a request to the IT Help Desk should you desire assistance: technology.support@garrett.edu or (847) 866-3928. Online courses currently being offered should continue as is.

Faculty and key administrators, please see the Academic Contingency Plan - COVID-19 document housed on myGETS for additional information. You can also find faculty resources for online pedagogy and facilitating learning without face-to-face meetings on the myGETS webpage. PLEASE NOTE: You must be logged into myGETS to access this information.

J-TERM SEMESTER (JANUARY 2021)

The Leadership Team, in consultation with the Academic Affairs Work Group and the Financial Operations Work Group of the Campus Safety Committee, has determined that we will need to continue academic programming during the J-Term semester in alternative, remote formats. The seminary’s campus will remain closed. There are roughly 10 courses being offered in the J-Term that will be impacted by this decision.

SPRING 2021 SEMESTER (FEBRUARY - MAY 2021)

All courses in the Spring 2021 semester will begin online with the intention of remaining in this format for the entire semester. With over 40 courses being projected for the Spring 2021 semester, the complexities of how best to deliver a robust theological education amid this pandemic are even greater. Based on the scenario-planning done to date with faculty, the Academic Affairs Work Group, and the Financial Operations Work Group of the Campus Safety Committee, we will be prepared to deliver courses in hybrid formats (with continuous exploration of “hyflex” models) in Spring 2021 if needed.

The faculty have been made aware of the need to design spring courses with flexibility and they stand ready to pivot selected courses from online/remote formats to in-person instruction if:

  1. New policies from the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP), a division of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency (ICE), prevent students on F-1/M-1 visas from taking courses online.
  2. Any of the seminary’s three accrediting bodies enact policies that impact the number of online courses a student can take within their degree program.

We will continue to track carefully federal, denominational, and accreditation guidelines and regulations to ensure that students will have the courses that they need in the requisite modalities for continuous advancement in our degree programs.

Campus Visits

As Garrett continues to watch and be responsive to what is happening at Northwestern University, the cities of Evanston and Chicago, and within the U.S. and globally, our top priority remains keeping our students, staff, and faculty safe. This is an evolving situation, and, as such, our Leadership Team continues to assess our current reality and to determine the best ways to safeguard our seminary community and the campus moving forward. In the immediate days ahead, we will be working towards maintaining the daily operations of the seminary remotely.

While this means we will not be having any prospective student visits to campus, we encourage you to visit our Virtual Campus Visit webpage and see below for the variety of ways you can connect with the Admissions team.

Financial Aid, Student Loan FAQs for COVID-19, and CARES Act

How will distance learning in the Spring 2021 semester impact financial aid?
During the J-Term and Spring 2021 semesters financial aid will not be impacted. Students can expect their regular institutional scholarships and access to federal student aid programs. As usual, financial aid will be disbursed to student accounts on the first day of classes. To help accommodate students in this stressful time, the 3.0 cumulative GPA scholarship requirement will not be enforced for the Spring semester though registration requirements will. If you are considering federal loan aid please complete the 2020-21 FAFSA at StudentAid.gov. A week after submission, students will receive a Federal Award Letter detailing their cost of attendance and eligibility.

Do I need to keep making payments on my federally held student loans?
No. Keep in mind that if you are enrolled at least part-time, you are probably already in an in-school deferment status, which does not require payments. Therefore, no action is required.
If you have graduated, discontinued attendance, or are less than part-time and your loans are in repayment, you may be eligible for an administrative forbearance which would allow you to temporarily stop making your monthly loan payment. The time under the administrative forbearance may count toward Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF). Please keep in mind that this is not an automatic process. You must request the forbearance. For more information on this option and how to apply, please contact your loan servicer.

Great, so how about private student loans, do I still need to keep paying them?
It depends. The Department of Education cannot compel private loan servicers to suspend payments. However, some private loan servicers are trying to make special accommodations for those in repayment. Contact your private loan servicer directly to learn about your options.

What about GBEHM private student loans?
If you are in repayment of a GBHEM loan you may be eligible for a 3-month forbearance (with interest accrual). To learn more email umloans@gbhem.org.  

I heard all student loan interest has been suspended. How does that work?
All federally held loans (Direct Stafford and PLUS Loans, and some Perkins Loans) have suspended interest for at least the next 60 days, beginning March 13, 2020. During this time, your federal loans will automatically be adjusted so that interest does not accrue. This adjustment will not change your monthly payments, rather any payments made during the 0% interest rate period will be applied in full to your outstanding principal balance or already accrued interest.

FEEL loans, school-serviced Perkins loans, and private student loans are not part of this interest suspension.

If I have more questions, what should I do?
If you have questions about your institutional scholarship, outside scholarships, or loan aid for the semester please consult the Financial Aid Handbook, which can be downloaded from myGETS, or contact our director of financial aid, Jason Gill, at 847-866-3987 or jason.gill@garrett.edu.

If you are in repayment and have questions about your loan status, contact your loan servicer directly. If you are considering federal loan aid please complete the 2020-21 FAFSA at StudentAid.gov. Federal Award Letters for those that have completed the FAFSA will be sent out at the end of May. 

If you have questions about federal student aid, go to studentaid.gov.

Resources and Information for Employees and Student Workers

Please visit Garrett’s Reopening webpage (to read Garrett’s phased in plan for reopening in light of the Five-Phase Restore Illinois Plan. In short, Garrett will continue in remote operations while Illinois is in Phase 3 of its plan. Only essential employees who have been coming to the office during Illinois’ Phase 2 will continue to come to campus in Illinois’ Phase 3. When Illinois moves to its Phase 4, we will start to consider a slow very controlled process of returning employees to work. Student workers will not return to campus until we determine it is safe to start having campus open to students. The reopening webpage includes much more detail.

This plan is based on what we know today and, on our guiding principle to prioritize the health and safety of all employees. We will continue to post updates as we receive new information from the CDC, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and local, state, and federal governments. Take heart in knowing we are dedicated to being flexible in helping our students, faculty, and staff attend to their personal and family health and home situations.
