Greetings BC Students,
As we near the end of the Spring quarter, we wanted to provide an update on COVID-19 along with information on the status of Fall Quarter. While Spring Quarter has been a challenge, the College worked hard to ensure you were able to continue your education, even in the midst of a global health crisis.
The Governor’s “Stay Home Stay Safe” order expired June 1, so we are now following his “Safe Start” phase-in plan. As of today, King County is still in Phase 1 and could be so for the foreseeable future. That means most of the College will continue to provide instruction remotely, at least until King County enters Phases 2 and 3. Once we enter those phases, we expect a gradual return to campus, rather than happening all at once. We understand the uncertainty of the situation is stressful and appreciate your patience and understanding as the College navigates this crisis.
After much deliberation, we have decided that Fall Quarter instruction will be taught remotely. There is simply too much uncertainty with COVID-19 to commit, at least at this time, to bringing classes back to campus.
Most Student Affairs departments remain open and continue serving our students remotely during the quarter break and throughout the summer. Effective June 22, 2020, office hours will change to the summer operation hours until September 6. Check each department’s website for more details.
We look forward to welcoming you back in the fall, and for those graduating this quarter, congratulations! What a tremendous achievement, and inspiration, for students working on their degree. It’s not easy, but we will get through this, together.
Summer Quarter Information
- Classes began on Wednesday, July 1st.
- Classes are being 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 spring quarter, so that faculty and students can plan accordingly.
- There will be no on-campus class meetings allowed until further notice. The College may have a few on-campus classes, as approved by the state, but the large majority of labs, resources, and offices will continue to provide services on-line.
- Locations closed, services online. Computer labs, the library, and a host of other student-centered functions will close their physical location until further notice. Most services are being provided remotely. For example,
