WORK EXPERIENCE STATUS - MARCH 26, 2020 UPDATE

For Students who are no longer working due to the Covid-19 pandemic & taking Work Experience classes:  
 
We are waiting to receive guidance from the CA Chancellor’s Office on Work Experience guidelines in the coming weeks. We encourage you to hold tight and not reduce units for now until we have more answers. 
 
We understand this is an uneasy time and you have many questions. We will have answers that are more definitive in the coming weeks.  We are keeping your needs and the fairness of all students as our highest priority when making decisions in these highly unusual circumstances.
 
If you choose to drop (which we encourage you not to do yet), your financial aid will not be affected for this semester and full refunds are being granted.  You must petition to drop through your student portal.  
 
Please continue to stay in contact with your assigned instructor with specific questions.  Stay safe.
