With the anticipation of changes to safety guidelines by the state, Humboldt State University plans to expand the number of face-to-face course offerings in Fall 2021 that were originally announced last month.
This planning will enable the campus to proactively maximize face-to-face courses in the safest way possible. University plans are based on a number of factors, including state and county guidelines, vaccination distribution, and risks related to several new COVID-19 variants. Depending on these factors, the University may need to provide in-person courses virtually instead. Any changes will be communicated as soon as possible.
The Fall schedule will go live on March 26 so students can begin planning for the Fall semester and consult with advisors as needed. Registration will begin Monday, April 12. Courses will be offered as face-to-face, virtual, and hybrid options.
The University plans to expand the number of available units in Housing for student residents, as well. This is among a number of changes being considered and more information is forthcoming. No final decisions have been made on campus staffing levels, events, and activities for Fall 2021.
Although the number of COVID-19 cases are decreasing, Humboldt County remains at substantial risk. While vaccinations have begun, it is expected to be a long effort.
