Through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, College of the Siskiyous is able to offer financial assistance to students in need. The purpose of the funds is to award emergency financial aid grants to students for specific expenses that are a direct result of the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19.
College of the Siskiyous will be using an online application to assist us in determining eligible students to receive funding from the CARES Act funds allotted.
If you are a College of the Siskiyous student eligible for financial aid and/or eligible to complete a FAFSA and the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted your personal financial situation, you can apply to receive a lump sum of up to $2000.
If you have any questions, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Siskiyou Joint Community College District's highest priority is the safety of its students and employees. While we prioritize safety, our students may determine that they wish to continue their studies, which may expose them to individuals who have developed or are receiving treatment for COVID-19. All students should be aware that they are at risk of exposure to the virus that causes COVID-19.
The District provides the following targeted guidance about COVID-19 safety to its students to allow them to consider risks and take certain precautions before continuing required face-to-face instruction.
Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Do Your Part.
In this extraordinary time of a global pandemic, we are responsible for ourselves and each other. We will work together. We will rise to the occasion. We will take necessary steps to keep each other safe. And - most importantly – we will not put ourselves or others at risk.
As we plan to reopen this fall semester, we all will embrace and adapt to new practices for our living, learning and working environment. At the core of these practices is protecting the health and safety of every campus community member.
To do so, all members of the Siskiyous community are expected to take an active role in promoting the safety, health and wellbeing of every campus community member. That means abiding by all health and safety directives from federal, state, local and College officials through the fall 2020 semester and beyond, and encouraging others to do the same.
We will all do our part to keep ourselves, our peers, our colleagues, and all College of the Siskiyous community members safe.
As a Siskiyous Eagle, I am committed to keeping myself and the Siskiyous community healthy and safe from the spread of COVID-19. I pledge to take the following actions:
The safety of our community is a shared responsibility, and my actions can put myself and others at risk. I understand that whether or not I take this pledge, failure to comply with these directives may result in a referral to the Office of Student Services for violation of the Code of Student Conduct, which governs individual and group behavior on and off campus.
We recognize that some students with disabilities, in order to live and learn safely, may need to modify some aspects of this pledge. Students who believe they may not be able to adhere to these protocols for disability-related reasons should contact the SAS Office to request a reasonable accommodation/modification.
