Cal Poly Humboldt is welcoming back thousands of students today, March 26, and they are all utilizing virtual instruction and support services. 

In addition to health and safety, the University has prioritized efforts to help students continue making progress toward their degrees. Faculty and staff took advantage of the Spring Break period and an additional three days of preparation this week to prepare.

Dear Students,

Cal Poly Humboldt is committed to supporting your education in light of the circumstances related to COVID-19. As a result, Humboldt has developed guidelines on refunds, which are consistent with campus policies, Title 5 CCR § 41802 (Title 5) regulations, and guiding principles established by the California State University’s Chancellor Office.

Since our last employee memorandum, the Chancellor’s Office provided systemwide guidance on COVID-19 employee matters. As a result of the communication, we have revised the FAQs related to Human Resources to include CSU mandates and to clarify additional information for supervisors and employees. The employment-related FAQs will be updated as new information is available.

As a reminder, anyone returning to campus is encouraged to follow Humboldt travel guidelines, based on the international and domestic travel guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control.

Dear Students,

We look forward to welcoming you back to classes for the Spring 2020 semester at Cal Poly Humboldt on March 26. May you and those you love remain healthy and connected during this really challenging time for all. We know this is not how you imagined the second half of the semester. The situation changes often but your University is committed to making adjustments to support your learning.

Cal Poly Humboldt is working to ensure our students, employees, and the community can access the assistance they need in a timely manner. This requires consistent use of phone and email systems, as described below. 

With a virtual campus operation, Humboldt staff should check their office phone voicemail at least once an hour, and more frequently if needed, during normal University business hours. Please be sure to respond to all incoming calls within 24-48 hours. To check your voicemails:

    • Dial 826-6999
