St. Charles Community College Announces Changes to the Start of Spring Semester 2022

To respond to safety concerns and to mitigate the viral spread associated with the recent COVID-19 spike in our service area, St. Charles Community College is adjusting our classroom instruction plans for the start of spring semester 2022.

From January 24 through February 6, lecture-based courses that were previously scheduled as in-person or hybrid for spring are now being moved temporarily to remote (synchronous) learning.

Workforce, healthcare, career and technical education lab, clinical and fieldwork courses, performance/studio-based courses in art, music, and theater; and some science courses containing a lab (including lecture portions of classes attached to a lab) will continue to operate in-person.

Faculty will post information regarding course status as remote or in-person in the specific CANVAS section for each course by Wednesday, January 19.

Students MUST check the CANVAS section for each of their courses to determine if the course is being taught in-person or in a remote fashion.  ZOOM login for courses will be found in CANVAS.

Students who need access to technology should contact the IT Service Desk, (636-922-8555) in the Learning Resources Center (Library). Students will be able to "check out" laptop computers for use. 

All services to students will be available in-person. Students who are seeking assistance with or from personal wellness counseling, ACE Tutoring Center, Advising/Registration/Financial Aid, Career Services, the Student Accounts Office, the College Store, the Learning Resources Center (Library) etc. will still be able to come to campus to receive services.

Campus space to study and access to Wi-Fi will be available to students. 

Masks are required for all students, faculty, staff and the community in all public indoor spaces on campus, regardless of vaccination status.
