SBCC moves most classes and services to remote until February 22

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (January 12, 2022) – Due to the ongoing surge of COVID-19 and high community infection rate, Santa Barbara City College has determined it is in the best interest of SBCC students, employees and the community to shift most SBCC classes and services to remote/online through Thursday, Feb. 17. In-person classes and services are scheduled to resume on Tuesday, Feb. 22.

Exceptions will be those classes that require hands-on instruction. For those coming to campus, daily health screenings and proof of vaccination or approved exemption from vaccination will continue to be required. All students and employees must wear an N95 or KN95 mask to enter any SBCC facility. These will be provided at check-in and COVID-19 testing tables. In addition, as of Jan. 24, all students and employees coming to any of the SBCC campuses will be required to have a negative COVID-19 test result on file that is no more than 7 days old. Testing is available at SBCC campuses for students and employees.

During the college’s winter break, the Spring 2022 semester, originally scheduled to begin Jan. 10, was rescheduled to begin Jan. 18. Spring break remains as scheduled (March 21-26, 2022), however, the 2022 commencement ceremony has been rescheduled to May 13, 2022.

Given the changing conditions currently surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is urged to regularly check the “Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for the SBCC Community” webpage for updates.
