If you have not already done so, be sure to provide proof of your COVID-19 vaccination or request a religious or medical exemption. You may do so by logging on to the MyCalStateLA Portal. For detailed instructions, go to the COVID-19 Student Self Certification Instructions page. You will be unable to register for your spring 2022 courses and will receive reminder messages until you complete this requirement.
Our spring semester begins on January 24 and coincides with what public health experts expect to be the peak of the largest surge in COVID-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. Out of concern for the health and safety of our community, we’re moving to temporary remote instruction for the first three weeks of the semester. From January 24 through February 11, classes will be held remotely.
Students should remain in communication with their instructors and follow their instructions, as well as check program web pages and email boxes for updates from PaGE staff and/or instructors.
Join our interest list to stay up to date on the latest program news and application windows.
