    READ MORE

    Hello all!  As you know we are legally required to provide reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities. Doing so allows our students the best opportunity for success.  Electronic device notetaking is an often requested reasonable accommodation. As such, we have provided several electronic options below that have proven to be effective at other Universities.  These are just suggestions for the instructor, student, and the notetaker to consider. The goal is to provide the student with a disability a copy of notes that are legible, easily accessible, and timely. In the event written notes are requested by the student with a disability, instructors may continue to pick up carbon copy paper from our office to provide to notetakers.

    Suggestions for note taker include Drop Box, OneNote, Email, Google Docs, Microsoft Word, and EverNote.

    There will be no change in the procedures for students that have extra textbooks for class.

    Thank you ~ Student Disability Services

  • STUDENT INSURANCE WAIVERS

    READ MORE

    Student Insurance provides the student worldwide protection, 24 hours a day. The Plan has a $100 deductible per diagnosis and pays up to 70% of eligible expenses for physician and hospital expenses, lab and x-ray, surgery, ambulance transport, physical therapy, maternity expenses, mental health and substance abuse issues. The Student Insurance plan also covers prescriptions at the Health Service Pharmacy on campus.                              

    Unlike an HMO or PPO, the Plan does not have a network, giving students a choice in their care and provides coverage for treatment the student receives while they are at home, at school, and wherever they may travel. When you have other insurance, the Plan coordinates with the primary carrier. Student Insurance is an economical way to reduce or eliminate out-of-pocket expenses when family health plans do not cover 100% of medical costs because of deductibles, co-payment amounts, limitations on specific benefits, and out-of-network penalties. The Student Insurance Plan complements the family health plan. Most students find it beneficial to carry both, particularly if the family plan has a deductible and/or coinsurance. 

    The Fall 2019 Student Insurance fee will be automatically assessed to students enrolled in 9 or more on-campus hours; Graduate Assistants under contract to the University; and International Students who are enrolled in a minimum of 3 on-campus hours. Students with other insurance coverage may request a waiver of the Student Insurance fee if their other coverage is a PPACA (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act) compliant plan.  Students will be required to complete a Waiver Form and provide a copy of their insurance card. The Waiver Form is available in the Student Insurance Office and on the Student Insurance website at: https://www.eiu.edu/studentinsurance/Fall%202019%20Waiver%20Form.pdf. 

    August 30, 2019 is the last date these forms will be accepted for Fall 2019 term. For more information, call (217) 581-5290.

  • 2019 CONSUMER CONFIDENCE REPORT (IL0295500, EIU): DRINKING WATER

    READ MORE

    In July of each year, EIU posts a public notice called the Consumer Confidence Report. It is a report concerning the quality of drinking water used on campus during the previous year (for the period of Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2018), and is required by the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1996. One way to serve notice is posting the information on the Web. There are two reports to view and/or print -- the EIU Consumer Confidence Report and the City of Charleston Consumer Report. Access to both printable reports can be found here:

    EIU is emailing all building coordinators with the link, as well, to ensure that all buildings connected to the campus water distribution system have a paper copy of both reports available for the building occupants to review. Paper copies will not be distributed via mail. The notice will be posted for public viewing in the same manner that other announcements are posted within EIU buildings. Also, a copy will be made available to any occupants who may request one.

    Thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, contact Aaron Kemper, Plumbing Shop, (217) 581-7212.
