Campus life is different this semester

We continue to develop inviting opportunities for you to achieve your educational and career goals.

We have established protocols based on the most current scientific and public health guidelines. As the situation evolves, we are committed to proactively communicating any changes to your classes or required procedures.

Anyone on campus is required to:

  • Wear a face covering or mask
  • Display a college ID badge or have a photo ID available
  • Maintain recommended physical distancing of 6 feet or more where possible
  • Monitor their health routinely before coming to campus
  • Notify their instructor or campus contact if they are not feeling well, and stay home
  • Not touch their nose or mouth, and if they do, wash their hands or use hand sanitizer right away
