Community Education and COVID-19

 

We will continue to remain online through Summer quarter. Please check with your instructor for updates.

Thank you for your patience and support as we continue to adjust to federal and state guidance on COVID-19 preventative measures. 

Based on recent announcements, we’re continuing a number of changes enacted in Spring Quarter to our daily operations through Summer Quarter. They are as follows: 

  • Classes will continue to be delivered remotely for the summer quarter. Like many other colleges, we have made the decision to extend remote learning (e.g., online, synchronous, etc.) through the entire summer quarter, so that faculty and students can plan accordingly. Instructor-led and self-paced courses are available.
  • There will be no on-campus class meetings allowed through at least April 26. The campus will reassess the situation in late April and we will determine if some on-campus activity with social distancing will be allowed.

  • While we have closed all in-person access to North Campus (including our Test Center), the College is NOT closed as of the date of this message.

  • Instructors: Be sure to check our eResources page to review options for online instruction software.
  • Students: Please check with your instructor on the status of your course. If your course has been moved to an online format, your instructor will reach out to you with information on the software you’ll use for the course. For issues with Canvas, please email contedlms@bellevuecollege.edu
  • Just Announced: Microsoft Teams training for both students and instructors.
    • BC employees can register for Teams training at the ITS website: ITS Training for Employees.

    • Students can register for Teams training through this ITS Knowledge Base article: Microsoft Teams Training for Students. If you’re aware of courses that will use Teams either Programs or the instructor can notify students that this training is available, ideally before the course start date.

Please remember to check your Bellevue College email as that’s where you’ll receive the most up-to-date information in real time. To contact our customer service team, please email conted@bellevuecollege.edu.
