We realize this is a difficult time for you and your families, and we are here to support your learning and your well-being in every way we can. We hope you will continue pursuing your educational and career goals, which are more important now than ever. 


What You Need to Know  (Updated 02/17/21)

  • Hartnell has established an email address -- -- for notification by employees and students who have developed COVID-19 symptoms or tested positive within seven (7) days of having visited one of our campus locations. This will allow us to respond and ensure that all precautions are taken to ensure the safety of others.
  • Hartnell’s Main and Alisal campuses and King City Center are closed until further notice due to the coronavirus.
  • With few very limited exceptions, all instruction is online, through Canvas, for the entire Spring 2021 semester.
  • Student services continue, through "virtual" or remote means such as email, telephone and Zoom video conferencing, instead of face-to-face.
  • If you can’t reach your instructor or encounter other issues, please contact the academic dean for your major.
