Important: Fall 2020 Return

As we continue to make plans for the start of the 2020-21 academic year, we want to share with you an important follow up about our return in the fall 2020 semester.

We commit ourselves to your safety and care during this very complex period. We are returning to a mostly face-to-face curriculum, with exceptions as needed to protect the health of the vulnerable among us. In all we do, we continue to be alert to changing circumstances and follow the counsel of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities, the State of California, the Fresno County Department of Public Health and the extensive work of our Emergency Management Team and President’s Cabinet. – Dr. Joseph Jones

Blended and online instruction will be available and previously scheduled online courses will continue.

If you wish to attend a scheduled face to face class virtually (you will have to virtually attend while the class is meeting), you must do the following:

  • Complete the Remote Attendance Request Form (coming soon)
  • Students can utilize this form through the second week of TUG and Grad classes and through the end of the first week of a DC class (session 2, 3 and 4)
    • A separate form must be completed for each class
  • For students attending face to face classes –  If a student or family member in the same household is to fall ill, a student can use this form to move to virtual attendance for the remainder of the semester or during a quarantine period.  In this case, please also contact your faculty member.

Please review the below course lists PRIOR to submitting your request

Note for Veteran Students:  Should a VA student fill out this request, VA benefits are protected if course begins prior to Dec. 21, 2020 due to COVID19

Fall 2020 semester schedule has been altered

  • The traditional undergraduate, graduate and seminary schedule begins August 24.
  • In person/blended instruction will end November 25, the day before Thanksgiving, and instruction for the last two weeks will be by distance. Instructors will have discretion as to how to manage teaching and final exams/projects. Fully online class schedules will not change.
  • For bachelor’s degree completion students, Session 1 will run fully online, Session 2 begins August 17 and will run as onsite/blended instruction through Session 4, ending December 27 as normally scheduled.

The Office of the Registrar enforces academic policy, maintains student records and protects the privacy and security of academic and personal information.  The Registrars’ office provides friendly customer service and knowledge to assist students in their academic pursuit.
