SWC Returns

Graphic that says "SWC Returns: Southwestern College's safe reopening plan"


When Southwestern College spring semester 2023 begins on Jan. 3, students will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination for in-person classes and services and masks will be optional indoors and outdoors, with a few exceptions.

All college employees will now be in their offices five days a week, beginning Jan. 3. In addition to in-person support, we will continue to offer many of our student services virtually through our Cranium Cafe and Virtual Lobbies. We have updated our Help Center webpage to outline how to continue to access all of our student services.

Spring registration begins Monday, Nov. 7, 2022. To read full details of the vaccine and mask guidelines, including where masks will be required, visit our News Center story.
