COVID-19 Student Information

Due to Governor Newsom’s Stay at Home order and our commitment to protecting the health and safety of our faculty and staff, we are working remotely.  Please note all classes and lab courses will be delivered in an off-site format that will be identified by instructors.  Instructors will contact their students to inform them as to how to engage in their coursework and class time.  All student services are available remotely.



Students are being offered the option of meeting with a counselor  via Zoom (video-conference) or telephone. Please see the Appointments page to for information on how to meet with a counselor. For quick questions, schedule a 15 minute quick question appointment.

Drops for Spring 2020

Supporting documentation is needed to verify student circumstance.  The form is under the Records Office forms. If no documentation is included, Records will send back to the student asking for documentation and not forward until documentation is received to support petition.
