FAQs Regarding Winter Term 2021 and Covid-19

Will the Winter 2021 term still be open at Pacific College?

Yes. We are still planning to start an incoming cohort for our Spring term, beginning January 4th, 2021. Our courses for the Winter term will be hybrid, which is a combination of online and on-campus classes. While there is a portion of your program that is hands-on learning, there is also a component that is didactic (lecture-based). We are prepared to offer these didactic classes online and gradually resume our typical hands-on classes during the Winter term.

Is Pacific still accepting and enrolling applicants for the Winter term?

Yes. However, classes are filling up so we advise you to apply right away.

What is the online environment like?

It’s very cool! Pacific College has been offering online education for several years and utilize a very user-friendly platform called Zoom. You can download Zoom onto your device and access your class from anywhere you have Internet. Our online classes will be live at a specific day/time and you will be able to interact with your faculty and classmates virtually. Before you start your online course, you will be able to go through a self-paced Technology Training to onboard you to the environment so you know exactly what to expect on day 1.
