Pasco-Hernando State College will continue to deliver select courses on campus and virtually (through online/hybrid/remote learning) while maintaining safety procedures recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Florida Department of Health (FLDOH).

To maximize flexibility for faculty and students, different instructional delivery options will be available for all students. Classes will be taught in multiple formats – face-to-face, hybrid/seated, hybrid/zoom, remote/zoom and online. Safety protocols will be followed for classes taking place on campus. Face-to-face instruction is being reconfigured to include social distancing provisions for certain programs and courses as identified in the schedule. These changes mean that classes may be smaller and may meet in larger spaces. Large classes or programs may be split into smaller sections, receive instruction via face-to-face/hybrid, online or consist of a combination of both. The expectation is that face masks will be worn for face-to-face classes and that social distancing protocols will be followed across all PHSC campuses.

The safety, health and well-being of the campus community will always be PHSC’s highest priority. Strategies are in place to continuously monitor changing healthcare issues and related campus operations. As the pandemic continues to evolve, college administration will determine if or when operational changes may be required.
