Updates to Spring 2020 College Policies Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

If you find that you are struggling to keep up with your class assignments, or are facing time and technological hurdles, we are here to help you decide what your best options are moving forward. You do not necessarily need to drop your classes and lose all the work you have put into the semester thus far

First, talk to your instructors. They understand the challenges this semester holds and will be flexible and responsive to your individual circumstances. Your instructors want you to succeed, so please use them as a resource.

If you still need assistance, email ambassador@redwoods.edu to determine if any of the below grading options are appropriate to your circumstance and academic goals.

Please note that these changes are ONLY for the Spring 2020 semester

Financial Resources

Many students are dealing with emergency needs resulting from the COVID-19 crisis and the consequent economic downturn. The economic fallout from the crisis is likely to last months, if not years, and it is therefore crucial that students take action now to shore up their economic stability over the long term at the same time that they address emergent needs.
