The Spring and Summer Continuing Education programming has been suspended, and all who have registered in advance will be contacted and have course fees refunded. Online continuing education couroses are still available.

The Hair Salon and Class Act Dining Room are closed, while gym access is limited to academic delivery.

The cafeteria is limited to student and employee access, and the setting have been adjusted to allow for appropriate social distancing.

The student residence at the Cranbrook campus remains open, and students living in those units are receiving regular updates.
