COVID-19 Update: Many classes moving to remote format Jan. 18 - 28

In light of the ongoing pandemic challenges, many in-person and hybrid courses will move to a fully remote format (Online Live, synchronous) for the first two weeks of the spring semester Jan. 18 - 28). Some classes (e.g., classes with lab components) will meet in person, as scheduled. The college plans to resume offering most classes in their originally scheduled format during the week of Jan. 31.

Currently enrolled students will receive confirmation of each of their classes’ formats for the first two weeks of the semester via email, as well as instructions on how to access courses.

Please note: College offices are closed Jan. 15, 16, and 17, 2022.  If there are additional questions regarding course formats, students should email
