FIU Student Health & Wellness
Dear Students,

We know these have been challenging times and that many of you are eager to return to campus – but we need to do so safely. Panthers Protecting Panthers is FIU’s repopulation plan for Fall 2020. It is meant to promote personal and shared responsibility to keep our community safe and healthy. Please take a moment to review our guidelines and requirements. If you have any questions, you can contact us at
fall semester updates
  • We are pleased to share with you the Student Guidelines for Campus Repopulation. These guidelines have been developed with the health and safety of our university community in mind, and after thoroughly reviewing all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines and federal and state health mandates. We strongly encourage you to review the document prior to the start of the semester.
  • The COVID-19 Training for Students is an important component of FIU's Panthers Protecting Panthers plan. In this course, you will gain the knowledge and information needed to keep yourself safe and protect our university community. This course is required for all students regardless of course modality, and must be completed no later than Sunday, August 23rd.
  • All students, faculty and staff will be required to fill out a screening questionnaire on the Panthers Protecting Panthers (P3) app each day prior to coming onto campus. The (P3) app will launch Monday, August 17.
  • Please remember to stay attentive to your FIU email account, FIU Coronavirus FAQ page, and university social media accounts for updates.
Safety guidelines
In adherence to CDC guidelines for safety/health and the FIU Student Conduct and Honor Code, the following protocols are to be followed by the entire FIU community:
  • Complete the Panthers Protecting Panthers Training Course by Sunday, August 23. 
  • Complete the Panthers Protecting Panthers (P3) app questionnaire each day that you plan to be on campus. 
  • Wear a face covering. The face covering is not a substitute for physical distancing and must be worn at all times while on campus.
  • Maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet. This includes refraining from physical contact with others such as handshakes.
  • Maintain classroom and work areas clean using products provided and/or recommended by the university. 
  • Refrain from using others’ work and personal equipment (e.g., phones, computers, pens).
Failure to comply with guidlines
Non-compliance issues should be shared with the Office of Student Conduct and Academic Integrity (SCAI) via the on-line reporting form. As with any report submitted to SCAI, it is helpful to include detailed information (e.g., photographs, names of others who may have witnessed the behavior) would be helpful.

Sanctions will escalate with each violation, and can include a required education session to suspension. Please review page 5 of the conduct process.
As part of the university’s efforts to minimize risk and efficiently bring our students, faculty, and staff back to campus, FIU will launch the Panthers Protecting Panthers (FIU P3) app on Monday, August 17. All students, faculty and staff are required to complete the safety screening questionnaire within the FIU P3 app questionnare before they come to campus. 
To access FIU P3: 
The app can be downloaded prior to Monday, August 17, but full sign-in capabilities will only be available on August 17. If you do not have access to a smartphone or cannot download the FIU P3 app, you can complete the screening questionnaire online.
Disability Resource Center
Students with pre-existing conditions should continue working with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) for their respective accommodations. The university is providing complimentary face coverings to all employees and students. However, the DRC is providing alternative clear face masks to students who are deaf / hard of hearing and taking courses on campus. These masks are also available to faculty members that are teaching on-campus and have students in their classes that may use lip reading as a communication tool. To request this alternative, please contact the Disability Resource Center directly via email at or via phone at 305-348-3532.
