Humboldt State University is developing and refining plans for instruction, flexible repopulation of campus, and student experience during the 2020-21 academic year.

All planning is guided by HSU’s mission, curricular focus on hands-on learning, unique circumstances, and specific guidance provided by local health officials. Humboldt State will offer a full Fall semester of courses taught through a mix of in-person and virtual formats. Students will live on and near campus, with modifications made on campus to support their health and safety. There will be student support and engagement offered in-person and online. 

As a campus community, we will be resilient, creative, and resourceful. And we will continue offering students a positive, meaningful educational experience.

  • Focus on the health and safety of our campus community, working in close coordination with local health officials and community partners.
  • Provide a full Fall semester of courses, with a mix of face-to-face instruction and virtual instruction. Adapt in order to offer in-person experiences for HSU’s high percentage of courses with labs, activities, or field-based activities. Ensure flexible options for participation.
  • Provide students with a positive and meaningful learning experience, including in-person and virtual support, student services, health and wellness, and engagement opportunities.
  • Repopulate the campus in a careful and responsible manner, while maintaining overall low density of less than 30 percent of a typical semester.
