Information on COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
The spring semester begins on Tuesday January 19th in a hybrid format. This is the same format that we conducted most of the fall semester in, with a mix of face-to-face and on-line classes. All Covid-19 policies and procedures remain in effect, and temperature checks will be added to the health screening process for students during the first week of classes. The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is the College’s paramount concern. Enhanced safety measures and cleaning standards have been put in place to help keep everyone as safe as possible. The College will continue to monitor the evolving COVID-19 situation and will continue to take any action necessary to help keep the College community healthy.
