Spring Quarter operations

Evergreen is moving to remote learning and services for Spring Quarter 2020 to keep our community healthy and to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

  • Remote classes begin with Lyceum on Thursday, April 2.
  • All other classes will start remotely on Monday, April 6.
  • Please check your email daily for instructions, information about spring quarter operations, student access to our building, and other information.
  • Tacoma will have Chromebooks available for enrolled students to check out. Please watch your email for updates about the computer check out process.
  • Field trips that would take place before April 24 are canceled.
  • You can also check the Evergreen COVID-19 information page, the Olympia campus library services page, additional information for students, and the status of other campus services.

If you have not already done so, please complete the survey that Dr. Z has sent to best determine how to deliver distant class instruction. Consider your IT skills and needs as you may be called to stretch your use of Zoom, Canvas, phone conferencing, and other remote tools. We are looking for your suggestions regarding remote instruction during Spring Quarter.

The Tacoma Program of The Evergreen State College is a full-time course of study for students who have already completed at least 90 transferable credits. Students who complete the program receive a bachelor’s degree.

All students attend full time, but you have the option of either day or evening classes. You can get started in the fall, winter, or spring quarter. Give the program a try and register as a special student for the summer.
