Academic Plan for Summer I and Summer II

Dear students,

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, the colleges are committed to continue our work as a vibrant centre of intellectual life while ensuring the safety of our students, faculty, staff and community.

We are following the government’s guidelines for post-secondary institutions and have made the following decisions for the Summer I and Summer II terms:

1. All classes will continue to be delivered through remote methods.
This will allow access to learning for all students regardless of their health risks or physical access to campus. There will be no requirement for students to physically visit campus during the Summer I and Summer II terms. We anticipate it may be possible to reintroduce in-person offerings, in a measured way, in the Summer II term. Any news of in-person offerings will be communicated as soon as these decisions are made.

2. Due to health and safety concerns and in order to avoid the spread of the virus, extracurricular activities and events will not take place in-person and will occur virtually.

3. Our campuses are closed. Please do not come to campus, as both campuses are closed due to COVID-19 and ongoing construction.

4. We will continue to ensure our remote learning and teaching provides a high-quality experience.

5. We will continue to deliver student supports, academic resources and services remotely. Please visit our website to access student services.

Going forward, we will continue to follow the recommendations of the BC Public Health Officer and the BC Centre for Disease Control.

Although a lot is still uncertain regarding COVID-19 and vaccine distributions, please be assured we will communicate any decisions as soon as we can and welcome you back to campus as soon as it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this challenging time as a community. Although we’re not physically together, please know our staff and faculty are available to you digitally. We are here to help. If you have any questions at any time, please email [email protected] and they will connect you with the best office to address your concern.
