Thanks to the many parents and students who participated in our Return to Campus conversation last night.

If you were not able to attend this virtual session. you can still view a recording or read a transcript of it.

There were a number of questions and answers about move-in, online classes, schedules and COVID-19 testing.


What technology do you need for fall?

Having the technology you need for your coursework is critical for your success. 

Physical distancing in classroom spaces might mean that your instructors will request that you participate remotely during some class sessions. 

Please complete this survey so we can make sure you have the tech you'll need.

Note: If you have informed the college that you will participate in fall semester as a distance learner, you do need not to complete this survey. You have already shared your needs with us.
