COVID-19 Updates (Residence Life)

March 31, 2020 update

Indian Hills Community College will observe the regularly scheduled Spring Break April 6-9, 2020. 

On April 13, classes will resume in the recently developed alternative formats (online, zoom, simulation) established by each faculty member.

Classes that are meeting in a completely virtual environment will finish the Spring Term in that format. Students must follow the instructions given by the faculty member for each class. 

Students in classes which contain lab and clinical components will receive information about those labs and clinicals from their instructors for each class. Some labs may resume in a face-to-face format beginning on May 4. Students must follow the instructions given by the faculty member for each class.

Students who completed a SPECIAL STAY REQUEST (COVID-19 RESPONSE) due to on-campus lab requirements resuming on April 13, 2020 and are still living in the residence hall can begin the checkout process immediately.  Students must complete the checkout process by 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 5.    

Students who completed a SPECIAL STAY REQUEST (COVID-19 RESPONSE) due to on-campus lab requirements resuming on April 13, 2020, but did not complete the checkout process should plan to return to campus to check out of their residence hall between May 1 and May 8, 2020.

Students who completed a SPECIAL STAY REQUEST (COVID-19 RESPONSE) for reasons other than on-campus lab requirements, may be granted permission to remain in their residence hall.  The Student Development Office will work with each student on a case-by-case basis. 

Continue to follow Indian Hills’ response to COVID-19 on the Indian Hills social media channels as well as the college’s COVID-19 website.
