Quick Facts

  • Several offices are accepting in-person visits. All offices and departments are offering services remotely and you are encouraged to take advantage them when possible.
    • Appointments for in-person visits are preferred; however, a limit number of walk-in visits will be accepted. 
    • Use the office directory to contact the office you are interested in meeting with to see if an appointment is available or for help accessing remote services.
  • All individuals must complete the health screening process prior to being admitted to campus each day.
    • Employees are using a digital visitor log to assist with contact tracing in the event of a COVID-19 exposure.
  • The campus is maintaining a density of 50% or less and most Fall 2020 classes will switch to a remote/online format for the remainder of the fall semester following Thanksgiving break.
  • The college is conducting pooled surveillance testing with mandatory weekly testing for all on-campus students required for the remainder of the Fall 2020 semester.
  • Face masks/coverings that cover the nose and mouth must be worn in shared spaces, including classrooms and labs, and while in the presence of others - see Face Mask and Glove Protocols (PDF).
