All visitors to the university will be expected to:

  • Perform a self-assessment of any symptoms of COVID-19 including fever, cough, shortness of breath, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat or new loss of takes/smell. If you are experiencing any of these, please call 502-852-6531 to reschedule your visit.
  • Maintain distance of six feet and reduced seating in meeting places and seating areas
  • Each visiting student may only bring a maximum of 2 guests on their visit. 
  • In response to increasing Covid-19 cases, we are strongly encouraging our visitors to wear masks during any indoor portions of the tour.

Transfer Courses

  • If you are transferring course work to UofL from Spring 2020, the University will accept P grades to meet all general education requirements, and to meet prerequisites. In most cases, P grades earned in other courses will also meet degree requirements, but we recommend checking during your advising appointment.

 

Important Notice for GI Bill Recipients

  • A new emergency bill has granted the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) the authority to continue GI Bill payments uninterrupted in the event of national emergencies (such as COVID-19).
  • The new law allows the VA to continue to pay benefits even if your program delivery method has changed from resident training to online training. You will also continue to receive the same monthly housing allowance payments that you received for resident training until January 1, 2021, or until UofL resumes normal operations.
