Sign Up to Return to Campus and Proof of Negative COVID-19 Test Required
For the entire The University of Olivet community’s health and safety, residential students are required to sign up for their return to campus and show proof of a negative COVID-19 test result. If you haven’t already made your plans, now is the time! For details, check your email for an important message Joshua Van Wyhe, coordinator of housing operations, sent on Jan. 5 and OC CARES on Jan. 7 or click here.
How to Report Safety or Academic Concerns
We care about your well-being. To report any safety or academic concerns in relation to COVID-19, students should use the student complaint form located in the student tab on the MyOlivet portal. The form is designed to provide students with an online method to file a formal complaint or register a concern with The University of Olivet.
A complaint is a request for the resolution of a problem, conflict, concern or issue that negatively impacts students, the community and/or the College. Student complaints may include (but are not limited to) issues regarding instruction, college policies, procedures, services, offices and personnel.
Prior to completing this form, please review The University of Olivet’s student complaint policies in the student handbook, which may be found on the Student Engagement tab on MyOlivet. You are asked to complete the informal complaint resolution process listed in the student complaint policies prior to completing this form.
For concerns or actions that are experienced or observed which present a danger to an individual or the The University of Olivet community, please contact Campus Safety immediately at 269-749-7911 or dial 911.

To view the Town Hall, check your OC CARES Jan. 15 email for the Zoom link.
