Message to Students: April 3

We hope you are getting some rest and relaxation while following the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy recommendations during your longer-than-usual Spring Break. Please know that everyone at SCC and SFCC is working together to be ready for the first day of Spring Quarter on April 13.

If you have not registered for Spring Quarter, we hope that you will join us! If you have any questions about programs or courses, please contact our registration offices to assist you.

The Governor extended Stay Home, Stay Healthy until May 4 but that will not change the start date for Spring Quarter. Just a reminder, that the online and alternative instruction approach that began at the end of Winter Quarter will continue throughout Spring Quarter.

In some special circumstances – after May 4 – some programs such as allied health, labs and career technical, students will still meet in person, strictly following social distancing measures and sanitization measures following all health directives from state and federal officials. We will continue to provide high quality instruction and training in these alternative ways. Instructors will contact their students and provide guidance as needed. We are dedicated to doing our part to protect the health of our community.

We hope you are getting ready for online classes, especially if online is new to you. Now is the time to plan how you will access your online classes, where you will study, what tools you might need and what help we can provide to you.  Check here for online support services – SCC Online Learning and SFCC Online Learning. If you have never taken an online class before, we know it might feel stressful and we are putting together tutorials and other ways to help you succeed.

The extension of Stay Home, Stay Healthy also means we will continue to provide you with your student services through phone calls, emails and other technologies.  SCC Campus Resources  and SFCC Campus Resources.

Please do not come to our campuses until after the Stay Home, Stay Healthy orders are lifted, sometime after May 4. Continue to call us and email us and we will respond to you.

Spring Quarter may be different than what you are used to, but we promise to continue to support you and your education. We will miss seeing you on campus! Thank you for trusting us.



In compliance with Gov. Jay Inslee's directive, Community College of Spokane will be moving the majority of classes to online instruction beginning Tuesday, March 17. Spring Quarter will also begin a week later on April 13. Instruction will then be online for at least the first two weeks of the quarter.

The new student application deadline for Spring Quarter has been extended to March 27, and 100% refund date extended to April 17.

Some lab, career tech and health education classes can’t move entirely online, so we will be seeing if portions of the courses can be online and whether we can make changes to the teaching area to increase the social distancing (distance between people), increase cleaning of shared surfaces and other steps we can take to reduce the spread of coronavirus and other viruses.

The Spokane Regional Health District reported on Saturday, March 14 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Spokane County. CCS has prepared emergency management plans should there be an outbreak in our college community.
