Returning to Campus

As the campus reopens, we will count on every Trojan to fulfill their responsibilities to keep themselves and the rest of their Trojan family safe and healthy. Read the Trojan Commitment to better understand our expectations. For health-related information, view the Health and Safety FAQs

Read the June 16, 2021 Workforce Planning Update.

✔ Confirm You Are Supposed to Return

Employees: If you have not received a notification from your supervisor that you are expected to return to campus, please continue to work from home. If you have any questions, please contact your supervisor. Employees working from home should view the Remote Work Guidelines.

Employees and supervisors returning to work on campus should view the Return to Work Guidelines. Note that there are two different versions for employees and supervisors.

✔ Make Sure You’re Not Sick

If you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. You have a responsibility to stay away from campus until you feel better.

✔ Complete Your Training

To return to campus, you must take the mandatory ‘Health, Hygiene and Safety Training’ module in TrojanLearn. This will help you better understand the health and hygiene requirements for returning to campus, and why it’s important for you to be aware of how the virus spreads. You will not be able to complete the Trojan Check and reservation without completing this first.

Faculty: The faculty training course has not yet launched. It is an enhanced version of the employee training module that is currently in development and will address unique needs in the academic setting. Faculty returning to campus in the coming days should complete Health, Hygiene and Safety for Employees. Only one module must be completed to fulfill the training requirement.

Volunteer faculty, contract workers, and other university affiliates: If you have an iVIP account and have access to TrojanLearn, please log in to TrojanLearn. If not, please contact your school or department’s iVIP administrator to set up your USC Net ID and activate your access to TrojanLearn. You will be able to login to TrojanLearn within 24 hours of your iVIP account being activated.

✔ Confirm You Are Well and Make a Reservation

Before coming to campus, you will need to complete a daily wellness assessment (Trojan Check) affirming that you have not recently been exposed to or diagnosed with COVID-19, and that you are not currently experiencing any symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Within one hour of completing the training module, you will have access to Trojan Check. Once you have completed Trojan Check, you will be allowed to make a reservation to come to campus. At the end of the process, you will receive an access pass with a QR code to enter the campus or your specific building.

✔ Use What You Learned

When you arrive on-campus, you will need to adhere to the requirements that are covered in the training. Use face masks, maintain physical distancing, practice good hand hygiene (wash your hands) and don’t share equipment.
