Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Updated 5/23/2020

To All SCIT Students:

SCIT is closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and is taking precautionary steps to keep the school environment safe for all students, staff and faculty. In light of the recent situation and in an effort to keep our community safe, the school is transitioning all courses to an online learning environment. If you have questions about your class schedule or are unable to attend school, please contact the Student Services Office by emailing studentservices@scitech.edu. Please take note of the following guidance during this time:

  • The school’s administration will continue to operate, but at a limited, essential capacity. The hours of the administration are now from 9am to 6pm, Mondays through Fridays, until further notice. School Office Directory and Contact Info.
  • If possible, please communicate with school offices via phone, email or text rather than scheduling in-person meetings. The school will be limiting in-person appointments with students throughout this time.
  • The school’s educational facilities, instructional laboratories, classrooms, Library and student spaces will not be available for students to access until further notice. Administrative offices are available to students to visit (please make an appointment if possible).
  • Students and visitors are urged to practice social distancing when entering the school to see the administration. Please maintain a distance of at least 6ft with others to the best of your abilities. Please use hand sanitizers when entering (located at all entrances). Face masks are required when entering the school.

Thank you for your patience as we make this temporary shift to online learning. Please be safe and heed the direction of health officials to the best of your abilities throughout these challenging times.

Accessing Online Courses

Students will need access to a computer connected to the internet to access online course material. Guidance and direction for students to access online course material will be provided by instructors, as they may vary from course to course. Students who have limited access to a computer connected to the internet should contact the Student Services Office by emailing studentservices@scitech.edu. Due to the developing situation and actions taken by the State of California, the school’s Library and computer classrooms will unfortunately not be available for students to utilize until further notice.

CARES Act and HEERF Grants

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act established the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) to provide grants to eligible students impacted by the COVID-19 situation who may be experiencing financial hardships as a result. SCIT is participating in this program to provide financial relief to eligible students who were unexpectedly transitioned to online instruction and who may have experienced other financial hardships resulting from the COVID-19 situation. SCIT students who are eligible and qualify to receive an HEERF grant, which is money that does not need to be paid back, will receive the grant in the form of a check (or multiple checks) mailed to the student directly.

To apply for an HEERF grant, please click on the application link below. The application is a Google Form which you must complete while signed in with your school email account (i.e. your @student.scitech.edu email account). Depending on your answers to some questions in the application, you may need to submit verification documentation, which you can do so through a file upload area in the application. Applications are processed on a first-come first-serve basis. Once submitted, please allow some time for the school’s Financial Aid Office to review and inform you of the outcome of your application. The current application cycle will close on June 19, 2020. Applications for this cycle will not be accepted after June 19, 2020. If you have questions regarding the application, please contact the Financial Aid Office by emailing financialaid@scitech.edu.
