Winter Quarter Information

High School Programs services will continue via online

The College been closely monitoring the spread of the Omicron variant across the nation, as well as the rapid rise in COVID-19 cases here in King County. To ensure the safety, success, and health of our community, we have made the decision to start Bellevue College’s Winter Quarter remotely and continue in this modality through the first four weeks of January (Jan. 3 – 28).

What does this mean for you?

For Students: Plan to attend your classes remotely using the course Canvas site on the first scheduled day of class (Jan. 3 for asynchronous classes), even if your class was scheduled to meet in-person. Most classes will remain remote through Jan. 28 at their scheduled meeting times, although some classes, such as those in some health science fields, may return to campus sooner. Your instructor will inform you if your class will be scheduled to meet on campus before Jan. 28. In addition, many campus services will only be available remotely. Limited on ground services, such as access to computer labs, may be available after the first week. Be sure to watch your email for updates and check the college website for more information. Student housing will remain open.

At this time No Campus High School Programs Services
