Class Schedules & Catalog

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are making changes to our summer and fall offerings. Please view the sections below for more information for the summer and fall quarters.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, courses will be offered online during the summer quarter. No face-to-face, in-person instruction will be delivered, with the possible exception for our allied health and career and technical programs. This is dependent on the guidance we receive from Gov. Jay Inslee regarding the duration of the current Stay Home, Stay Healthy directive.

As you view the class schedule, you’ll see classes are designated in one of three ways: virtual, hybrid/virtual, or online. The following definitions explain the how each type of course will be delivered:

  • Virtual: Class will meet online at the time listed in the class schedule. For example, if your class begins at 9 a.m. in the class schedule, then it will begin at 9 a.m. on Zoom. You will be attending the class at the same time as your classmates, just as you would on campus. 
  • Virtual Hybrid: Part of the class will be held online without a set time to attend. The other part will occur at the time listed in a virtual format (e.g.  Zoom).
  • Online: The entire class will be held online without a set time to attend. The class will still have assignment deadlines and due dates.

Note: If, due to the state's response to COVID 19, the teaching modality listed in the class schedule changes before the start of summer quarter, students will be notified by their instructor as soon as possible.

While we are hoping to return to our regular schedule of instruction for the fall quarter, we are also planning for all possible outcomes. Classes for fall quarter are designated in these five ways:

Modalities with a face-to-face component

  • Face-to-Face: Class times are listed in the schedule. Classes will meet in a face-to-face format on campus. Based on the state’s response to COVID-19, these courses may shift to virtual, online, or hybrid/virtual using Zoom. Your instructor will let you know prior to the start of fall quarter via your GRC email and Canvas dashboard.
  • Hybrid: Part of the class will occur in a face-to-face format on campus at the time listed in the class schedule. The other part will be held online without a set time to attend. *If on-campus instruction is not yet allowed by fall quarter, then the face-to-face part of the course will switch to online or virtual using Zoom or other virtual format. Your instructor will let you know prior to the start of fall quarter via your GRC email and Canvas dashboard.

Modalities with NO face to face component

  • Completely Virtual: Class will meet online at the time listed in the class schedule. For example, if your class begins at 9 a.m. in the class schedule, then it will begin at 9 a.m. on Zoom. You will be attending the class at the same time as your classmates, just as you would on campus. 
  • Virtual Hybrid: Part of the class will be held online without a set time to attend. The other part will occur at the time listed in a virtual format (e.g.  Zoom). 
  • Online: The entire class will be held online without a set time to attend. The class will still have assignment deadlines and due dates.

Note: If, due to the state's response to COVID 19, the teaching modality listed in the class schedule changes before the start of fall quarter, students will be notified by their instructor as soon as possible.
