  • Signage will be posted requiring visitors wear masks. Buildings will have clearly marked entrance/exits to maintain a safe flow of traffic.
  • Staff will wear face masks/shields when communicating with students (DSS will have clear face shields to communicate with Deaf or Hard of Hearing students).
  • Bigfoot Central (Building 15) and other locations have installed plexiglass at main reception locations.
  • When possible, conference rooms or other designated spaces that can accommodate for safe physical distancing will be utilized for meetings with students in person/zoom. These spaces will be disinfected after each use.
  • Furniture will be rearranged to observe at least 6 feet of social/physical distancing.
  • High-touch items have been removed or minimized in each location (staplers, magazines, etc.).
  • GED testing open, testing center will block off computers to ensure 6 foot social distancing (Colville & Newport).
  • Library and computer labs closed, open by appointment only (Colville).

Testing Center: 

Included in the Student Services Reopening will be the resumption of operations in the Testing Center. Safety protocols severely limit the capacity of the center, but we realize the importance of that function for our students.

The SCC Testing Center will begin opening to the public on Thursday, July 30 by appointment only. Summer hours will be Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. Start dates of the proctored tests that will be available this summer are listed below. With the exception of Pearson Vue, students may schedule their appointment by contacting the Testing Center at or 509-533-7074.
