  • Will I get my financial aid disbursement?

    Yes. The Financial Aid Office continues to process disbursements. Financial aid funds will be disbursed as regularly scheduled. Please refer to the disbursement schedule.

    What will happen if I drop a class?

    All withdrawals are included in a financial aid student’s academic eligibility calculation. Any student who is determined ineligible for financial aid due to a withdrawal that affected either their GPA or Pace of Progress may appeal for reinstatement based on the impact from the school closure. Any withdrawal that results in a change to a student’s enrollment status (i.e. full-time to half time) may result in a reduced award or repayment. Students should refer to Section XV of the Financial Aid Eligibility & Academic Standards policy for more information on how changes in enrollment affect financial aid disbursements.

    How do I check my financial aid application status?

    You can check your financial aid application (FAFSA) status online through My Canyons.

Reporting


Will I be required to receive a vaccine for influenza, and will these shots be made available on campus?

Per the orders of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, students who report to campus are required to receive an influenza immunization unless contraindicated by personal medical conditions. You may also access influenza vaccines from your primary health-care provider or local pharmacy once they become available. 


How long will I have to stay away from campus if I am quarantining due to symptoms of COVID-19, a positive test, or exposure to a confirmed or presumed positive case of COVID-19?

If you have received a confirmed positive diagnosis of COVID-19 or presumed positive case of COVID-19, please reference COVID-19 Exposure Protocols in the COVID-19 Containment, Response and Control Plan. Generally, if you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, you will be prohibited from returning to campus until you meet the quarantine requirements established by public health officials.


How does contact tracing work and will I be identified to other students or employees if I disclose symptoms or a positive COVID-19 test result?

Consistent with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health's Protocol for COVID-19 Exposure Management in Institutes of Higher Education and CDC guidelines, the college will initiate limited contact tracing (i.e., within the campus community) for confirmed and presumed positive cases of COVID-19. Please reference Campus Exposure and Contract Tracing in the COVID-19 Containment, Response and Control Plan. In general, the college will interview the COVID-19 positive individual to determine which spaces and individuals they came in close contact (defined as sharing the same indoor airspace with someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period while they were infectious) so that the college can notify those individuals and take appropriate remedial measures. Your identity and testing status will be maintained in strict confidence and will not be disclosed to your coworkers or other students. The college may continue its contact tracing efforts by interviewing relevant individuals about who they came in contact with and what spaces they recently used. Some of those individuals may be advised to stay home due to a higher risk of having been infected.


If there is a case of confirmed or presumed positive COVID-19 within a classroom, will all persons in the class be directed to leave campus and self-quarantine?

The college will make the determination as to whether an entire class will be asked to leave campus and self-quarantine based on the specific factual circumstances presented and consistent with public health guidance. At a minimum, those students and instructors within a class who come in close contact (defined as sharing the same indoor airspace with someone who has COVID-19 for a total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period while they were infectious) with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19 will be directed to self-quarantine. As for others present at the time of instruction, the college will consider the nature and length of the contact and any environmental considerations (e.g., outdoor instruction, physical barriers present, etc.). In making such determinations, the college will consult medical professionals or, where appropriate, local public health officials.


Who do I contact if I have symptoms of COVID-19 or have been in close physical contact with someone who has a confirmed or presumed positive case of COVID-19?

All persons who have symptoms should contact their own healthcare provider or, where necessary, 911. Persons without a doctor or without health insurance should contact 211 for available community resources. If you do not have insurance, you may contact Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH) for the location of a free testing center. After reaching out to a healthcare provider or LADPH:

  • You must notify the COVID-19 Compliance Team at (661) 993-7670 or via email if you experience COVID-19 symptoms, receive a positive COVID-19 test result, or receive a doctor’s diagnosis of likely or presumed COVID-19.

What if someone tells me they believe they were exposed to coronavirus?

If someone reports to you that they have been exposed, but are not exhibiting symptoms:

  • Instruct them to contact their healthcare provider or the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health at (888) 397-3993, and
  • Instruct them to notify the COVID-19 Compliance Team at (661) 993-7670 or via email.
