Las Positas College in Livermore will be offering online classes in the upcoming semester combined with some in-person services because of COVID-19 safety guidelines.
Because the college has an in-person laboratory requirement, which must have hands-on activities, some classes will still be face-to-face, according to Mujeeb Dadgar, marketing communications associate for the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District.
An updated fall schedule is expected to be released to students in two weeks that will provide more details on what classes will be offered. Dadgar said the exact number of face-to-face classes will be determined based on state and county health departments, so for the time being, LPC cannot provide a specific count.
“Currently our top priority is the health and well-being of our students, faculty and staff,” Dadgar said.
For the summer term, Las Positas has transitioned to exclusively online classes and services. Resources like tutoring, student services, student health center, online counseling, and disabled students programs and services are all online.
Students can use NetTutor for free online tutoring in their classes. Virtual counseling is also continuing through online communication, chat, phone, or email. Students can find out more on the counseling webpage.
The Las Positas College Student and Wellness Center is also extending their remote business into the summer semester. Services will be open on Mondays to Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Fridays, calls they are closing earlier, at 1 p.m. For medical questions or mental health services, students can call 925-424-1830.
Other resources are also open, despite the continuation of virtual instruction. The following student services programs are open and have online extensions: admissions and records, assessment center, CalWORKS, the Disability Resource Center, EOPS, financial aid, international students program, Puente, the Student Health and Wellness Center, transfers, Umoja and the Veterans First Program.
