Seattle Central College COVID-19 response and resources
Seattle Central plans in-person reopening on Sept. 13
Seattle Central College will open its campus to in-person services and instruction this fall, starting on Sept. 13, 2021. In order to reduce the risk of infection, we will require staff, faculty, and students to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
We plan to offer as many classes in person as possible, so please check your class schedule for updates about classes that are currently listed as hybrid.

Don’t forget your picture ID and face mask - you must wear a mask at all times while in the building and maintain six feet of distance from others.
We are excited to serve you and look forward to seeing you in person.
Fall quarter will offer more instruction in person
We are planning to offer more classes in person this fall quarter, depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. You will notice that many classes in the fall class schedule are currently listed as hybrid. If conditions improve, part of those courses could move to in-person instruction. But if a class is currently listed as an online course, it will remain in that mode for fall. All the dates and times for classes will remain the same, regardless of mode. We plan to make a final decision about hybrid classes by early September – please check our website, Canvas, and your email for information.
