Question: For those with families outside of Spokane and wish to travel to spend the rest of the semester with them in this critical time, can they hope that if their courses do not require them to be here,, can they leave Spokane if they wish to?
When are we getting our IPPE/APPE rotations?
For those of us who are currently out of state, and at risk of flight cancellations as quarantine restrictions grow stricter…there is a potential that we may be impacted by flight restrictions to come back for block 1 rotations. Are there options for us?
Are there plans so for for PY1 community rotations this year?
What is the timeline for rotation site locations being released to PY3’s? What are the risks for rotations getting cancelled and/or delaying graduation?
So I saw that our labs are going to be moved to the fall to be completed, is this going to be going on at the same time as our other classes or are we getting allotted time for these?
Will our academic progress be impacted because of the video conferencing for classes?
For the PY1s, with the labs being distanced delivery for the semester, how are we going to fit the mandatory in-person requirements (i.e. compounding lab) into our schedule the following fall semester?

Is graduation still happening?
Just to confirm, is it safe to assume that all classes are now through distance learning and we don't have to come back to campus for the rest of this semester? Do we not have to worry about the recommendations changing and having to come back to campus?
Will these lab makeups affect electives?

Thank you for the update
For those of us who would like to come back to Spokane after spring break, can you speak to the situation in Spokane specifically? Here in LA there is chaos, is Spokane facing the same challenges
Will you be sharing this recording?
As an FYI...I was just at the North Spokane Costco over lunch. There was no lines and plenty of everything except cleaning supplies.
Is the food pantry still planning on being open while the campus is open?
Some stores are starting to limit certain items per customer, so people have a chance to obtain things like toilet paper.

Are there any updates about the upcoming IPE sessions?
Really appreciate yall working so hard to make this experience frustration free and being so creative and flexible! Thank you.
For remote Examsoft, will we be permitted to wear noise cancelling headphones? I don’t have a quiet testing environment available at home
For APC I, we were informed about a virtual final exam. Do you know how will we accomplish the final integrated assessment virtually?
We are looking forward to continuing our semester and helping each of you complete it successfully! We've had much fun and adventure getting workarounds in place for you now and in the upcoming weeks.
Also for remote Examsoft, will we be permitted to use scratch paper? I know the camera is meant to follow eye movement to watch for cheating, but don’t we need to look away from our screens to write notes onto our papers?
Sounds good! Thank you
I just want clarification, are we being watched while taking exams on examsoft?
For Examsoft, do we take our tests at the normal times or can we take it anytime during that day?
If we have our webcam cameras blocked is this something we will have to change prior to exams? I don’t have a sticker or anything blocking my webcam camera but I know a lot of other students do
Okay thank you!
I'm sorry if I missed this earlier - are summer rotations still on as of right now for 1st and 2nd year students?
For students with testing accommodations, are things still remain the same for them ?
Dr. Miller can you update the PY3’s on Crimson Presentation? Last I saw we were supposed to come back to campus on the day that we are presenting. Has this changed?
I heard rumors that the time limit for each test will be shortened, is that correct?
can you provide recommendations about getting a TB test for castle branch? I know multiple students are getting emails and calls every day but don’t feel comfortable going into a clinic to get tested right now.
The time and number of questions for Pharmacology II exams will remain the same as before.
TB available at Tieton Village and Gibbon's pharmacy for Yakima for our student pharmacists
Considering some of us are with our families who may not understand the importance of quiet concentration for exams no matter how often we remind them. will we get into trouble if during an exam our family member walks into the room and disrupt us?
Some clinics are closed to everyone except for emergencies and will no longer see patients in person. Do we need our TB test done by the due date or will the due date be extended?
Pharmaceutics -2 will also remain the same.
The Pharmacy Law exam on Tuesday will be the same amount of time. You can still use your book and notes, however as Dena MacLean mentioned, you took an oath and I expect professionalism surrounding academic integrity.
Will our registration date for classes in the fall still be the same? Will not getting things done like TB and uploading on castle branch put a hold on our accounts ?
With the increase in tuition will our loans increase as well?
Thank you ALL for everything you are doing
Thank you, stay healthy!
Thank you all!
Thank you for making everything clear as you can, this was enlightening.
Be well everyone!
