Changes in the Start of 2021 Spring Semester

Nov 25, 2020


Lane College family,

As a result of the current rising spread of COVID-19, and future predictions, we are modifying the start for the 2021 Spring Semester. Please note the following:

  • Classes will begin on January 4, 2021 in remote instruction delivery (online) through Blackboard Ultra, and remain remote until February 1, 2021.
  • All students must log into all their classes on Blackboard and complete a mandatory assignment for each of the first three (3) weeks. Any student who fails to login Blackboard and complete the mandatory assignments in all their courses will be subject to administrative withdrawal from that course.
  • Residential students must have a negative COVID-19 test dated after January 11, 2021
  • Move in/Check in for Residential Students has been changed from January 3, 2021 to January 16, 2021. All residential students will be required to be in modified isolation January 16-31, 2021.
  • Courses that have been scheduled as Face-to-Face will transition to in-person classes on February 1, 2021.

The 2021 Spring Academic Calendar Addendum is below.

Please have a safe and restorative winter break and practice WWSS (Wear your mask, Wash your hands, Social distance, and Self-check).
