Working With Campus Passes

Academic Affairs has shared the following guidance on how employees can use the campus pass system:

  1. Communicate your intentions to use the campus pass via your syllabus. See sample information from the Center for Teaching and Learning.
  2. Post campus pass signage near the entryway of your learning environment or shared space. Download floor and wall signage from UGS or a daily campus access sign.
  3. Learn more on addressing student conduct issues. Please look for additional information from the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.
