Dear Campus Community,
We continue to work through the details of our return to in-person learning and residence for the spring semester. Our healthcare partners advise us that COVID-19 cases will likely continue to rise, peaking in mid-January just before we planned to re-open campus. Therefore, we have adjusted the Spring 2021 academic calendar and pushed back the opening by one week.
Classes will now begin Monday, Feb. 1. An outline of the calendar is below. Commencement and summer session dates have not changed. Over the break, we’ll send details about move-in to residential students and other information as we prepare for the start of the semester.
My best wishes to you and yours this holiday season.

A reminder that registration is open now for our new Winter Term, which will meet between the fall and spring semesters from January 4-24, 2021. This is an optional term and all courses are offered 100% online.
As you plan for the spring semester, please be sure to consider winter offerings and discuss this option with your advisor. The Winter Term provides a great opportunity to catch up with or get ahead of degree requirements. Courses cover several General Education/Constellation and major requirements.
Registration is open now on a first-come, first-served basis via AccessLVC! Students may only take one course during the Winter Term. Undergraduate tuition is $485/credit and some financial aid can be combined with the spring semester.
Please visit the Winter 2021 website for additional details.

LVC’s digital symptom tracker (myLVC) informs student health services about possible COVID-19 cases on campus. Students with symptoms should call Shroyer Health Center; the digital tracker adds another layer of data for monitoring. Health center staff will review the results for red X’s and contact students of concern.
Faculty members must confirm that every student in the classroom has a green checkmark for the day for two very important reasons: 1) so that students can less easily skip reporting for a day and b) so that a potentially symptomatic student is not in the classroom.
- Students should complete the symptom tracker once a day. The tracker refreshes every day at 5 a.m.
- Students must show that day’s green checkmark on their device to the faculty member before class begins. This may be done during attendance taking, before students enter a room if physical distancing is possible outside of the room, or in a way that suits the classroom setup and class size and format.
- Students with a red X are not permitted in classrooms and should follow the College’s Protocol for Symptomatic Students.
The expectation is for all students to complete the symptom tracker before arriving in class. If a student has not completed the symptom tracker that day, they may complete it before the start of class.
