Spring 2021 Semester Guide

These past few months have been challenging for students who've either already had to adapt or adjust to a remote learning format during the COVID-19 pandemic, or are attempting to tackle a college course load for the first time under these new conditions.

No matter your situation, we're here to guide you through the process. This section will provide all the information you need to get ready for the upcoming Winter and Spring 2021 semesters, from how your courses will look in the fall to which grants may be available to assist you in your studies.
