COVID-19 Response

Latest Update

STUDENTS: SMC will reopen campus for the fall semester. The first three days of classes (August 19-21) will be all online.

The first day of physical classes will be held on Monday, August 24. Please visit our FAQ about Academics During COVID19 page for more details.


EMPLOYEES: The campus is now open with limited staff. Many faculty and staff will continue to work remotely to keep the numbers of employees on campus low as we transition back to working on site. All faculty and staff have received detailed information via their campus email. Please check with your supervisor if you have questions.


SMC staff and faculty are working hard to prepare for the return of all Pioneers to campus in August.

We all want the same thing: to live, work and learn on our beloved campus.  We believe that all of us,  working together, can prioritize the health and safety of our Pioneer community.

Using the guidelines created for Colleges and Universities by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have developed processes and procedures that, if followed diligently by all, will let us achieve a common goal: to keep campus open, safely.

As new information is available or recommendations and guidelines change, we will adjust our plans accordingly, but always with the safety of our community in mind.
