Returning to Campus

We are working to offer more in-person classes and student services.

  • Fall 2021: Many classes are fully online, but classes that focus on hands-on skills and learning experiences meet on campus.
  • Winter Session: All winter classes will be fully online. Register now.
  • Spring 2022: Classes will be offered on campus and online. Register now.
Students must submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination by January 7, 2022 (or have an approved exception from the College) to access on-campus classes and services. Learn more.
