What's Next?

Your guide to 2020 Summer and Fall quarters at #SCC

With your health and safety in mind, let's see what college looks like next quarter.

High-quality instruction in a safe and supporting environment

In-person and online -- you choose

At Spokane Community College, we know you expect and rely on access to world-class facilities and face-to-face instruction taught by outstanding faculty. Which is why both Summer Quarter and Fall Quarter will be highlighted by a large number of in-person programs and courses returning to campus. Each quarter will also include a strong offering of online and hybrid courses for students who prefer that modality of delivery. 

Courses are currently scheduled and designed to both provide students the opportunity to engage in learning while following safety protocols.If a course is scheduled as an online course the student will retain the right to stay online throughout the quarter and not attend in person if they choose.

Student services will be offered primarily online until Phase 3, at which point face-to-face operations will resume with social distancing and occupancy restrictions.

Steps we're taking to help keep you healthy

At SCC we will continue to meet all health and safety guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including the wearing of face coverings by all, safe distancing between people, regular cleaning of the room and equipment, and hand sanitizer or hand washing.

  • Complete thorough and detailed cleaning of entire facility, with focus on high contact areas that would be touched by both students and personnel.
  • Maintaining physical distancing of 6 feet for extended periods of >15 minutes.
  • Adhering to state and federal law for health and safety during COVID 19 including WA State's "Safe Start" guidelines.
