The vaccination requirement for students and employees remains in place. Everyone is required to wear a face mask inside campus buildings at all times. Those who are not vaccinated will continue with weekly testing.

Prospective and current students can still enroll and register for spring semester courses. Please visit the college’s website to search for courses or to connect with an advisor.

Students can also attend (in person or virtually) a special Enroll-in-a-Day Event on January 22 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to meet with an advisor, register for classes, and learn more about academic options and student activities. Additional virtual and in-person registration sessions take place through January 28.

“The bottom line is that we believe on-ground and in-person instruction is the best, most effective way to serve our students, and we are confident we have the plan in place to get it done and get through this surge,” said Terence Cheng, President of the Connecticut State Colleges and Universities (CSCU) system.
