Southwestern College will offer 60 percent of in-person classes along with a mix of hybrid, online and remote courses for the spring semester. 

The fall semester began at Southwestern College as a hybrid in-person model. Vaccination rates were lower at that time, and Southwestern College was at the forefront of getting the campus community vaccinated.

“The Southwestern College community, including our employees and students, has done an excellent job with our phased return and following our health and safety protocols,” said Superintendent/President Dr. Mark Sanchez. “I am so proud of the work everyone has done to keep us safe and because of their excellent commitment, we are able to increase our in-person classes and help get students back into the classroom to meet their educational goals.” 

COVID-19 vaccines will be required for all employees and for students to register for in-person sections, which began on Nov.8. Current health and safety guidelines will remain, including masks required indoors.

Students who register for in-person classes and have not documented their vaccine status will receive instructions on how to do so before spring semester classes begin on January 31. Students who qualify for exemptions will conduct regular testing on the Chula Vista campus in Student Union East.

Classes and student services will be offered at all Southwestern College campuses including: Chula Vista, National City, Otay Mesa and San Ysidro. Appointments will still be required for in-person student service. Online help will remain available through Southwestern College’s Virtual Welcome Center.

For students, the spring semester schedule, including January Intersession, is now available online and on WebAdvisor.
