COVID-19 Educational Training Module

All USF students who have an on-campus class component are required to complete the USF COVID-19 training module through EVERFI. Those students that will be fully remote will not need to complete this training module. This course is designed to provide students with information to protect their physical health and maintain their mental well-being. Additional information specific to policies and guidelines set forth by the San Francisco Department of Public Health and the University of San Francisco is also included in this module.

Employees of the University of San Francisco are highly encouraged to complete the training as well.

  • Students will self-monitor and report the presence or absence of symptoms of COVID-19 every day, beginning on the first day of return to campus.
  • All students must remain at home or in a designated isolation space if they are ill with COVID-19.
