Portage is monitoring the impacts linked to the new Omicron COVID-19 variant. Out of an abundance of caution the college with be flipping most programs to online delivery until at least January 21. Classes resume January 4 with modifications to delivery. Students and staff are encouraged to work and study online when they can.
Onsite labs and a limited number of programs will continue to be in-person (see below for program details). Campuses will be open for students to collect textbooks and materials in preparation for the winter term. Those who come on campus will need to be fully vaccinated or provide proof of a negative rapid test. It’s also important for those who are on campus to follow other health and safety measures, including wearing a mask and staying home when sick.
“We highly encourage people to find alternatives to coming on campus. With our current restrictions in place and our ability to pivot to online quickly, sticking with our January start date for winter term will lessen the impact to our students and their studies.” Said Nancy Broadbent, President and CEO of Portage College.
Information by program as of Dec 22, 2021. Delivery will be reassessed by January 21, 2022.
