Cypress College has announced that course instruction will continue in a remote/online format during the Spring 2021 semester as a response to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The decision was made as the college works to finalize the course offerings for spring in time for registration to begin in a few weeks.

“This decision allows us to balance the safety needs of our students while providing them with certainty about their coursework for the upcoming semester,” said Cypress College President JoAnna Schilling, Ph.D. “Although we sincerely wish we could welcome our employees and students back to our campus this spring, this decision was made in the best interest of our students and employees, while allowing our faculty the necessary time to best prepare their courses for continued remote/online delivery.”

Spring classes begin January 25, and registration begins November 9. Prospective students are invited to visit www.cypresscollege.edu/admissions/apply-now to apply. Cypress College’s spring offerings will be expansive, roughly at the same pre-pandemic level of spring 2020. Nearly all fall courses are being taught remotely with a limited number of face-to-face courses meeting occasionally on campus to meet lab and accreditation requirements. These include courses in Career Technical Education, Health Science, and Kinesiology.

All of the college’s student services, activities, and premier support continue to be provided via our virtual services all semester. In addition to free, drive-up WiFi, Cypress College this month initiated an on-campus outdoor student study space — a power and data-equipped, socially distanced gathering spot where students can find a quiet location to study and/or attend virtual class meetings.

Cypress College halted in-person coursework on March 13, 2020, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. In May, the college notified students that instruction would continue to be remote in the fall semester to allow for the greatest level of preparation possible for students as well as faculty and staff.
