Student Frequently Asked Questions

Culver-Stockton has implemented a face covering guideline, 6 feet physical distancing, along with temperature checks for certain buildings and athletic facilities. We have also increased the cleaning, specifically of high touch areas. For a minimum of the first 30 days of students back on campus, there will be no guests allowed on campus, restricted dining hall practices and no college-sponsored travel unless it is approved by the President.

Yes. Two people can help you move in. Both will need to wear a face covering. Once the move-in process is complete, your helpers must leave campus. Wildcat Welcome leaders and Resident Assistants welcoming you to campus are available within the buildings. However, they will not be touching or carrying your items as you move in.

The residence halls have been unoccupied for several months, and have been thoroughly cleaned and will be re-cleaned a week prior to students coming back. Extra hand sanitizer units have been installed by main entrances in each hall. We have a protocol in place for health screening before students get their room keys, and also if isolation is needed. We are asking students to be a part of keeping everyone safe and communicate with us about symptoms, not taking undue risks, and disinfecting their personal space every day.

No. However, we are asking all students to quarantine at home for 10 to 14 days before they leave to come to campus. Limiting your exposure to others before you arrive will help reduce risk on campus and provide a safer environment for the campus to finish the semester.

Yes. You may go into downtown Canton, drive to Quincy or wherever you need when the campus is in Phase 1, 2 or 3. We ask that you wear a face covering and maintain 6-foot physical distancing while in public. You also may return home on the weekends. We ask that you make smart choices when you do so.

You will need to notify Student Life or Athletic Training if you get a positive test. You may need to relocate to another room for isolation while you recover, which could be up to 14 days. Student Life will assist you in getting your meals.

We will take direction from the Lewis Co. Health Department with any positive case. Your roommate will be moved to quarantine in a separate room.

If you feel sick, stay in your residence hall room and immediately contact Susan Moon ( in Student Life or Jay Hoffman ( in Athletic Training.

No, you will not be penalized. You will need to contact your instructors to let them know that you missed class due to illness, and they will help you make up your missed work. Instructors are prepared to help students stay up to date in their courses through distance learning if the student is isolated or quarantined.

The first step to exploring online options is to contact your advisor, the registrar’s office, and financial aid to see how we can help you continue to make progress toward your degree this fall as an online-only student.

If a student needs to be hospitalized, Blessing Hospital in Quincy, Ill. is approximately a 25-minute drive from Canton, Mo., and both Hannibal Regional Hospital in Hannibal, Mo., and UnityPoint Health in Keokuk, Iowa, are approximately a 40-minute drive from Canton. Blessing Hospital also has its Blessing Convenient Care clinic inside the County Market grocery store in Canton, and Quincy Medical Group has an affiliate in Canton as well.

The names of anyone on the Culver-Stockton campus who tests positive for COVID-19 will not be made public to maintain their privacy. We also will be following the Lewis County Department of Health guidelines for contact tracing. You will be notified if you were exposed to a COVID-19 positive person.

The College is exploring options for virtual events but plans to have enough options for students to get at least three ACE credits during the semester. Each student is required to attend 24 ACE events during their enrollment at C-SC.

Yes, all members of our Wildcat family are required to sign the same pledge that students signed.

No. When the College is in Phase 1, the only options for food from the dining hall must be taken in to-go containers. However, you are not limited to one container. A variety of hot items will be available daily, as well as the salad bar and the sandwich bar. Choose what you want from each. The biggest change will be that the food is served to you by our staff instead of you serving yourself.

Groups of 50 or less can still have meetings indoors as long as physical distancing can be maintained. If the group is outdoors you can meet in a larger group, however you will still need to maintain physical distancing.
