Humber College campuses will remain closed for the upcoming Summer term. Students in full-time, part-time, and continuing education programs will be completing course work online/remotely due to the evolving COVID-19 situation.
“I want to thank students for their patience and dedication to their studies at Humber College over the past few weeks. Your success and safety continue to be our top priorities as we continue with online/remote learning,” said Chris Whitaker, president and CEO.
The majority of Humber programs originally offered during the term will continue to be offered, though programs with significant lab components will be suspended. Those programs will resume in the Fall 2020 or Winter 2021 term.
Summer course registration will start on Monday, April 27.
The term itself will begin Tuesday, May 19 and end Friday, August 14.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Humber will continue to offer student services online, by telephone, or other remote means. The student update page contains a detailed list of supports, including mental health supports like Good2Talk Helpline and Therapy Assist Online
‘We are here for you’
The COVID-19 pandemic has touched every part of the Humber community and international students are acutely affected by the circumstances.
Some have had to return home much earlier than expected, while others are continuing studies at Humber and anxious about family and friends.
"We are working hard to get clarity from the federal government on the rules for international students studying online in the Summer term,” said Laurie Rancourt, senior vice president, Academic. International students will continue to receive updates from the International Centre.
“Take care of yourselves and please reach to our service areas if you have questions or need help. We’re here for you,” Rancourt said. For a detailed list of student services and the latest information visit www.humber.ca/updates.
