Shasta College courses for the fall semester will commence on Monday, Aug. 17, with most being held online. Shasta College decided to move the majority of fall classes online back in May 2020 in response to the national pandemic and out of concern for student’s and faculty’s safety and well-being.
Since that decisive action in May, the college staff and faculty have been working diligently to fully develop classes and services, and implement the technologies required for students to succeed in an online format. Essential student services like tutoring, financial aid, counseling, and more will now be readily available to students online. Health and Wellness will also be available online and by appointment to students for in-person nursing, psychological counseling, and doctor visits.
The college also moved up the final implementation of its new, fully responsive website in development for the past two years. The new site is live and built to be fully responsive for any screen — from phones and tablets to desktop and laptops and will allow students to interact online with the college and their instructors more seamlessly and quickly than before. The campus bookstore will be open to students by appointment only starting Aug. 3. Students will need to call the campus bookstore at 530-242-7574 and make an appointment to be allowed access on campus. Students looking for help from a counselor for the fall semester can call the Counseling office at 530-242-7724 and get an “express” 10-minute appointment.
