Returning to Campus


Continuing students returned to campus on July 13th for most clinical and lab courses. Our overarching goal since the start of the pandemic has been to reduce the number of students and faculty on campus to the greatest extent possible, while preserving graduation timelines. For the Fall term, we have re-sequenced the curriculum and adjusted schedules to limit face-to-face contact to a greater degree than was possible for the Summer term, all while preserving the graduation timeline.

 

SCU has developed safety and health protocols for the campus that address environmental, cleaning, behavioral, classroom, surveillance, testing, and containment considerations and are consistent with county, state, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requirements and best practices prioritizing the health and safety of our students, employees, and community.
