South Plains College

South Plains College will start its spring 2021 semester on Jan. 19, 2021 across all campuses.

SPC staff will report to work on Jan. 4, 2021. Faculty will report on Jan. 11, 2021, according to a news release from SPC.

Robin Satterwhite, president of South Plains College, said the primary adjustment to the calendar is to compress the spring interim semester into a shorter time frame and prevent any overlapping semesters which create financial aid issues.

“We will have a safer start to our semester by adding a week between the holidays and the time students arrive on campus,” he said.

All SPC campuses will be closed to student and community traffic the week of Jan. 4, 2021 through Jan. 8, 2021. Students are encouraged to contact the college by phone, email, virtual appointments or online chat. All offices will be available in-person on Jan. 11, 2021, according to the news release.

The spring 2021 semester will run from Jan. 19 to May 13. Graduation is set for May 14. Satterwhite said the college will address the potential for a graduation ceremony based on the community status in the spring.
