News and Events for the week of May 10

Good Monday Morning: 

Last week we moved into the less restrictive Yellow Tier. This is the least restrictive tier before the emergency is declared over. The transmission and hospitalization numbers continue to go down in Los Angeles County. In the Yellow Tier you will see 75% capacity in many areas and more indoor activities. Larger gatherings will be allowed as well. This is an important step toward returning to campus operations. 

Fall 2021

We are planning our Fall 2021 schedule for the Yellow Tier. The fall schedule will be ready in a few weeks and we expect about 70% of our classes will remain online. Summer classes will be online and the schedule is posted on our website.
