Yuba College Students,
As we approach the Fall Semester, we wanted to provide you with updates about what to expect at Yuba College for the Fall.
With the continuing challenges for our students, staff, and faculty’s health and safety due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision that most courses at the college will be delivered through distance education for the Fall Semester. In some cases, where classes are either hard to convert or align with the Governor’s Essential Critical Infrastructure (Examples: EMT, Nursing) courses may occur face-to-face with social distancing and PPE requirements (for example face coverings or gloves where required).
To determine if your course has moved to distance education/online, please refer to “Meeting Information” for meeting times and dates in WebAdvisor. The meeting information for courses that have moved online will now include ONLINE, and the room will be marked as CANVAS. The meeting information for courses that have moved to Hybrid will now include HYBRID, and the room will be marked with the actual room number.
Hybrid courses are defined as courses in which part of the instruction will be taught online, and other parts will be taught on campus, requiring students to attend in person on designated day and times. Your instructor will communicate the expectations for any in-person sessions.
We realize that this may cause some concern. We want to provide more information on what to expect for Fall Semester in the classroom, student services, student success, and athletics. We’d also like to share how to apply for additional funding available to students through the CARES Act this Fall. We will do this in a Zoom Town Hall Session for students on August 12th at 4:30 p.m. To attend the Zoom session, click on this link: https://cccconfer.zoom.us/j/97070881653.
As we continue to navigate the pandemic’s impacts, please know that we are committed to providing excellent teaching and learning for you to continue your education at Yuba College. Our nation needs highly qualified candidates for the critical careers you are pursuing more than ever.
Be resilient and persistent. Use your resources at the college. Reach out if you need support. But don’t give up. We believe in you and your future!
