Latest Update

STUDENTS: SMC will reopen campus for the fall semester, with classes scheduled to begin on Wednesday, August 19.

A virtual Town Hall meeting with campus reopening information for students and families was held on June 25. A link to the meeting recording has been sent to your SMC email and to the parent/family email address on file.


EMPLOYEES: The campus is now open with limited staff. Many faculty and staff will continue to work remotely to keep the numbers of employees on campus low as we transition back to working on site. All faculty and staff have received detailed information via their campus email. Please check with your supervisor if you have questions.


SMC staff and faculty are working hard to prepare for the return of all Pioneers to campus in August.

We all want the same thing: to live, work and learn on our beloved campus.  We believe that all of us,  working together, can prioritize the health and safety of our Pioneer community.

Using the guidelines created for Colleges and Universities by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we have developed processes and procedures that, if followed diligently by all, will let us achieve a common goal: to keep campus open, safely.

As new information is available or recommendations and guidelines change, we will adjust our plans accordingly, but always with the safety of our community in mind.
