COVID-19 Prevention & Response Plan

Resources for Students and Family Members

Parent and Family Information Sessions

Reed hosted spring term information sessions for students and their families. The sessions addressed academics (e.g., registering for spring classes, course formats, finals, thesis, and senior celebrations); COVID-19 guidelines for returning to campus in the spring; student engagement programming; how to plan for summer; and more. The recorded sessions are available below. 

Support Resources

The full spectrum of student support services—including tutoring, counseling services, peer advising, and disability accommodations—will be available during the spring semester, though many will continue to operate in modified ways in accordance with health and safety guidelines. Support for community members disproportionately affected by COVID-19 will be a key priority.

COVID-19 Financial Support 

Reed is committed to supporting students and families who are experiencing financial difficulty or incurring additional expenses as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. Students seeking financial support should contact the financial aid office.

Staff will work with students to determine whether their needs can be addressed through the financial aid process and may refer them to another campus resource.

Reed College Emergency Fund

This fund may be available for students who have urgent short-term or one-time financial needs. Students can apply online or contact Kat Buckspan in admission for more information.

Emergency Loans

Contact Sara Rosenberger in the business office for more information about loans for students who are experiencing financial hardship.

Student Work

Please see the student work office website for information about student work. Students and supervisors with questions may contact Kate Walford.

Office of Financial Aid

For general queries regarding financial aid, students may call or email the financial aid office. Students and parents may also book a virtual meeting with a financial aid staff member.

Room & Board Fees

Should the college be forced to ask students to leave campus during the spring semester due to pandemic conditions, the college will prorate room and board charges and refund unused board points.
