Due to the recent surge of COVID-19 cases, Mt. San Jacinto College is transitioning most in-person classes to an online format for the month of January. Additionally, effective immediately, MSJC indoor events and activities will be postponed, modified, or canceled. The spring 2022 semester will begin as scheduled on Tuesday, January 18.
Only classes that cannot be sufficiently delivered online or have licensing requirements will continue on campus, primarily classes in nursing and allied health, automotive, and athletics. All face-to-face classes that transition to an online format will be held on the same date and time as it is listed in the schedule.
Masks are mandatory when indoors on campus. Students, employees, and visitors must submit a COVID-19 self-check every day they will be in campus. Students planning to take courses on campus must comply with the vaccine and testing mandate.
All Student Support Services, including counseling, will be available online at the Student Support Hub.
While the campuses will be mostly closed this month, MSJC will be providing the following services:
- Free Wi-Fi will still be offered in the parking lots for students. Parking is free this semester and student lots will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Students are asked to not exit their vehicles at any time. Restrooms will be closed during this time.
- The MSJC bookstores on the San Jacinto and Menifee Valley campuses will remain open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday and closed Fridays.
