COVID 19 Banner

Since our rapid shift to online instruction at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, the Hartnell Community College District has been working with all stakeholders to restore the many benefits of face-to-face instruction and engagement. The college is open and will provide about half of its classes through in-person instruction during the Fall 2021 semester, with a goal of restoring on-campus activity as fully as possible by Spring 2022.

The well-being and safety of students, employees and visitors remain Hartnell’s highest priority. The college continues to closely monitor the public health situation involving COVID-19.

Accepting Online Science Labs

Science courses with labs that must be taught online will be accepted as prerequisites to the registered nursing, vocational nursing, and respiratory care programs.  These courses include BIO-5, BIO-6, BIO-6L, BIO-11, BIO-27 and their equivalent courses taught at other colleges.  

Online Resources for Students

This information is provided to help students be successful in their online courses and know how to remotely access student support services via the internet or telephone. We will continue to add content over time, so check back frequently.
