Monday, January 18, 2021: Start of Spring Semester


I hope you enjoyed a well-earned holiday break! The spring semester officially kicks off tomorrow, Tuesday, January 19, and I want to share a few reminders and resources with you as we are committed to providing you quality education in a healthy and safe environment.

Classes will be delivered in a variety of formats.

  • The Spring 2021 List of Zoom Classes Google Sheet lists face-to-face classes that will meet via Zoom at their scheduled days and times through the first half of the semester. All other classes will run as scheduled at their designated days, times, and locations. Web courses will run as scheduled with no changes.

  • Check your Canvas Class Announcements, as instructors have posted any additional class information needed. If you have questions about your classes, contact your instructor.

  • Check your Hawkeye Email for updates and other important information.

Maintaining a healthy campus community is key to student success. Please do your part to help keep our campus safe by practicing these simple measures:

  • Mask up when you are on campus. Face masks are required at all times.

  • Watch your distance and keep at least six feet between yourself and others.

  • Stay at home if you are sick and are experiencing any of these symptoms: fever, chills, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, congestion, runny nose, headache, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea.

  • Complete the COVID-19 Reporting Form if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or are a direct contact with someone who has COVID-19. Our Student Health Clinic will follow up with you and answer any questions.

  • Contact your instructor if you are sick or unable to attend class. Your instructor will work with you to make up any coursework or missed assignments.

We understand you may encounter some challenges during the semester, and we want you to know we’re here to help. Your Academic/College Success Advisor can help you work through financial difficulties, personal challenges, scheduling issues, career planning, and more. They can also connect you to other resources on campus and in the community.

We hope you have a great semester!
