Winter Classes

Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, LWTech is offering a combination of online and on-campus classes for Winter quarter. This decision was made for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. The College is relying on guidance from the Office of the Governor, Washington State Public Health, King County Public Health, and the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.

Will students be allowed on campus during Winter quarter?

Only students in classes with “F” or “B” classes are permitted on campus Winter quarter. Students will only be permitted on campus during the scheduled lab days and times. Specific instructions will be sent to these students regarding protocols for their time on campus.

This is the current plan based on public health guidance. The college may change these rules depending on the changing nature of the pandemic. Students enrolled in these classes should be prepared to be flexible. For example, an on-campus class may be moved online if the college receives guidance that this is necessary.

What if I don't have internet or need a quiet space to study?

The college set up FREE wi-fi access for students in the parking lot under the Technology Center Building.
