COVID-19 Remote Work Request

During the #AlamoTOGETHER Summit, it was announced that this fall will look very similar to what we have experienced this summer with most classes being held remotely with exceptions for CTE courses and some arts and sciences courses that may require face-to-face learning. Additionally, a limited number of student success employees will be returning to campus to provide appointment-based services to students needing support.

Only a limited number of employees will be on campus this fall. For those who may have to return to campus but who cannot do so due to certain conditions, may request authorization to work from home. If you feel you meet the eligibility requirements, please fill out the COVID-19 Remote Work Request.

This portal will remain open throughout the pandemic and employees will be able to submit requests as well as update or discontinue requests at any time. All requests will be processed by the Human Resources department and remain confidential.

It is not necessary to submit a request if you do not anticipate being assigned to work onsite in the foreseeable future
