If you have not already, download the FAMU Mobile App (available in App Store or Google Play). Click the hamburger menu. Then click on self-assessment. You will have to log in with your iRattler credentials. Take the assessment and your answers will determine if you are able to proceed to class or campus.

    Gatherings of more than 10 people are prohibited. Maintain 6 foot distance wherever possible.

    You must wear a face covering that protects your nose and mouth when in classrooms, buildings and in public spaces. This includes the dining halls (when you are not actively eating) and the libraries.
