Returning to Campus

As the governor pursues a phased approach to re-opening Washington’s economy, community colleges are now allowed to conduct some very limited in-person instructional activities. These activities are only possible for a small group of Workforce Education (WED) programs. Because of additional requirements related to Gov. Jay Inslee’s Stay Home, Stay Healthy order, Phase 1 of the Higher Education and Critical Infrastructure Workforce Training Restart COVID-19 Requirements, in-person labs for essential programs are beginning on specific dates and will vary by program.

Our campus will remain closed to the public and we will continue to serve students and the community remotely in order to continue to comply with the Governor’s orders as well as protect the health and safety of our community.

You must be approved to access the campuses prior to your arrival on campus.

  • All students, faculty, staff, and visitors will identify themselves and HR staff will confirm they have completed their Campus Access Form.  If not, they will be asked to complete the form.

Any employee or student must contact Campus Security at 509-574-4610 to self-report if they have tested positive for COVID-19, for tracing purposes.
