Happy New Year and Welcome Back! Spring 2022 classes begin Monday, January 24, 2022. We will begin most of our classes in Remote (online) Mode. Check the iLearn sites for your classes to get Zoom Links, course information and current details. We are planning on returning to scheduled in-person classes on Monday, February 14.

We are offering a combination of fully in-person, hybrid and fully online courses. Again, check your iLearn site for information about your scheduled classes.

For all campus details, please check with the Campus Comeback site for vaccine updates and safety measures throughout the physical campus.

Modified Return in Spring 22

San Francisco State has an excellent safety record when it comes to COVID 19. We have successfully completed the Fall 21 semester with no spread on campus. Individuals have tested positive, but due to our high vaccination rate (over 98%), adherence to masking requirements, hand sanitizing, as well as other safety measures, we have had no spread on our campus.

We will continue a modified return for Spring 22; a little over 50% of our offered course sections will have some or all sessions on campus. We are offering some studio classes fully in-person, many studio classes as Hybrid (1 session per week in person and the other session online), a handful as modified Hybrid (between 3 and 7 sessions in person with the remaining sessions offered online). The remainder of our schedule is online, in a combination of Synchronous, Asynchronous and Online Hybrid offerings. Please see the Spring 22 schedule for each class section's details. If a student has an in-person class scheduled with an online offering scheduled right after, we are establishing spaces in the department that students can use to access online classes with their laptops and headphones.

Building Access in Winter 22

Most campus buildings will remained closed through January 14th. As the campus opens up, faculty and students can see which areas are open, and when by visiting https://news.sfsu.edu/campus-plan/buildings-available-spaces
