Resources for Fall 2021 Semester

Here’s what we know right now about the upcoming semester, but please check your WSU email often; all communication regarding course work, labs, clinicals and programmatic changes will be sent that way. As you know, the situation continues to be fluid, and this website will be updated as new information becomes available.

Academic Instruction

Classes will begin on time as scheduled and pre-licensure BSN classes will return to in-person instruction this fall in Spokane, Yakima and the Tri-Cities. Please see the message published July 2 from Dean Mary Koithan: Message from Dean Mary Koithan July 2, 2021 – BSN Program Resumes In-Person Instruction Fall 2021

Dean Koithan made this announcement following WSU President Kirk Schulz’s communication of June 30 and Gov. Jay Inslee’s proclamation concerning higher education.

All other programs will remain as previously published.

We will continue to observe recommendations and university/campus/state regulations, remembering that these may change over the course of the semester.

Vaccination Locations – Spokane

Everyone 12 and over is eligible to receive a vaccine, as of July 19, 2021. Check the Washington Department of Health’s Vaccine Locator for vaccine appointments.

Sign up to Volunteer at a Vaccination Clinic

Students and most faculty should be eligible as health care workers, verifiable with student ID.  Staff are increasingly eligible with availability. We will notify students of opportunities to volunteer at vaccination clinics as they arise.

Note: Prior to attending and volunteering at one of the vaccination clinics, training is required of all students, faculty or other approved preceptors. Requirements are listed here.

Academic and Student Support

We realize some of the necessary changes to course delivery will affect our students, especially those with limited resources and/or access to resources. We are here to help. Below you will find a list of resources to ensure a successful fall semester.

Laptops – If you do not have access to a laptop, please contact your instructor as soon as possible. Visit our Computer Loan Program page for more information.

WiFi access – If you do not have access to WiFi or high-speed internet, please contact your instructors as soon as possible. More information regarding technology assistance can be found on the Student Care Network website.
