SCTC will continue to look to our tribal, state and national health leaders for guidance as we make plans to resume courses in the fall. COVID-19 will undeniably change the way we deliver quality education to our students. The following transition plan was implemented to open the campus to the public. The current plan includes:


·    The public may call the college to schedule a ZOOM meeting with staff.

·    Face to face meetings are by appointment only.

·    Masks are required for all face to face meetings, if needed the college will provide one for you.

·    Only the student will be schedule for the face to face meetings. No children should attend these meetings.


SCTC will offer options for remote learning, in a hybrid course format, for all fall ’20 courses. SCTC defines Hybrid courses as: “classes that are delivered by mixed methods format (online and face to face). Media formats include only those that are subscribed by and accessible to SCTC, such as:  Schoology, Zoom and YouTube”. SCTC will also provide online tutoring supports, through TutorMe, as well as technology and emergency aid support to our students during this time. We will do all we can to support any student in their success this fall!  

Online Registration for fall ’20 is now open!
