Student Resources During COVID-19

THE 2020 FALL SEMESTER

During the 2020 Fall Semester, San Diego Miramar College will continue to be on remote operations with the large majority of classes offered primarily online.

Some courses, due to their contribution to the training of essential workers, will be offered in a hybrid model.  These courses will fall under the areas of automotive technology, aviation, aviation maintenance technology, fire protection technology, and medical laboratory technician training.

Since Student Services will continue providing services to students in a remote modality throughout the fall semester, here is a list of resources and information to help address any of the questions or needs that you may have throughout the Fall.

CDC COVID-19 UPDATES

At the end of last week, the CDC issued a recommendation that we all voluntarily wear cloth face coverings in public.  This recommendation was issued for two reasons: 1) to remind everyone to reserve the surgical andN95 masks for healthcare workers who are fighting this pandemic on the front lines and (2) fabric face coverings can greatly assist in slowing the spread of the Coronavirus, especially for those who are asymptomatic.  Your face covering can be as simple as scarf or bandana or there are plenty of other options out there.
