HealthCheck 360 (HC 360)

What is HealthCheck 360 and how do we get it?

ICC is utilizing HealthCheck 360, a self-screening tool, to promote the health and wellness of those returning to campus. Students and employees scheduled to be on campus will receive registration information for HC 360 via email. Individuals then register for a daily text or email that will include a link to complete the Daily Symptom Tracker. Individuals will receive a “green light” to come to campus or a “red light” to not come on campus, based upon the screening questions.

How will faculty know students have completed the HealthCheck 360 screening, as required?

Students should show the “green light” given to them by HC 360 upon entrance to the classroom. If students are given a “red light,” they are instructed to stay home. Both the ICC HR Benefits Office and the Dean of Students Office will receive notifications of “red lights” from the system.

For students taking lab courses, will temperatures be taken on campus?

No, temperatures will not be taken onsite. It is the expectation that employees and students will self-monitor and report daily using HC 360.

Academics

What are the Spring 2021 class formats?

Online Anytime is a traditional online course, providing a convenient, flexible, and student-centered way of learning. Students log in and complete their course assignments day or night, without coming to campus.Online Scheduled is an online class at a scheduled time. Students log in to their class at the scheduled times and participate in live, video-supported classes with their instructor and classmates. This online course format is the most comparable to the face-to-face, on-campus experience.

Hybrid courses will include online lectures and on-campus attendance to complete labs or hands-on experiences. For fall, this will be reserved for courses requiring face-to-face instruction for hands-on learning. The on-campus experience will include social distancing, specific entry and exit points, and personal protective equipment for students and faculty.

Clinical and Internship experiences will continue at the off-campus locations as long as the hosting partner is able.
