COVID-19 Update—April 1, 2020

In light of the continuing Covid-19 outbreak, the Doral College administrative office will remain closed and F2F and Hybrid courses will continue online until further notice. We will keep you updated as things develop through posts on our website, social media outlets, and within Schoology.

In the meantime, students should continue regularly logging into the Schoology platform at https://schoology.doral.edu/ to stay up to date on course activities and assignments. In an effort to maintain contact and student engagement, many F2F and Hybrid instructors have chosen to require synchronous sessions, and all students should make it a point to attend. If you have any questions, please contact your instructor.

Students in need of technical support are encouraged to contact support@doral.edu. For admissions or student services-related inquiries, please contact studentaffairs@doral.edu. Course-specific questions should be directed to the instructor. All Doral College personnel are available remotely and can be reached via email. Student services, including advising and transcript fulfillment remain available. Students, faculty and staff should also monitor their doral.edu emails for further guidance and future updates.

On a different note, earlier this week, we welcomed our students back from spring break, knowing too well what an odd break it must have been, given current circumstances. As students, faculty, and community partners join us online from their homes, dotted across the state, we are filled with pride for what each and every one of you is accomplishing given the our current reality. You should all be proud of your hard work. We know we are.

We also know that in times like these, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the things you can’t control. Combat the feeling by controlling what you can:

  • Be consistent. Maintain an active routine. Get enough sleep and eat healthy meals.
  • Be proactive. Stay on top of your assignments. Read ahead. Check your email regularly.
  • Be kind to yourself. Ask for help when you need it. Banish negative thoughts. Forgive your less than perfect attempts.
  • Be positive. Support a classmate. Facetime with a friend. Share a happy memory.

As this crisis continues, we remind you all to heed the guidance of your local governments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization. Stay home if you can and practice social distancing. Our highest priority is the health and safety of each and every one of you.
