UB provided an update on preparations for the upcoming spring semester in a memo to students today.
In addition, Student Life has revised the Student Guide in preparation for a return to campus this spring. The Student Guide is a resource to provide students and parents with the most up-to-date information, as it becomes available.
Please note: This information does not apply to PharmD students on rotations through Feb. 1, 2021. PharmD students on rotations should reference SPPS Student Guidelines and Updates dated 12/30/20 (yellow box).
A three step process (below) is required for all PharmD students before beginning rotations or returning to campus for the start of the spring semester. Guidelines are based on your geographic residence.
Students on rotation must comply with UB SPPS as well as all rotation site-specific directives.
These directives only impact spring rotations beginning 1/4/21 through 2/1/2 along with return to campus dates 1/4/21 through 2/1/21.
