Quick Tips for Remote Teaching & Learning

​Sonoma State is ready to help you as we transition to all-remote teaching and learning! As a starting point, please see the Academic Affairs COVID-19 Information Hub. Also, see our Student Resource Guide, written just for you.

  • For help with Zoom see SSU’s webpage: How to Use Zoom.

  • For help with Canvas see SSU’s webpage: Getting Started with Canvas.

  • Worried about remote learning in general and want to talk to someone who can help you make that switch? Contact NomaCares at (707) 664-3833 or nomacares@sonoma.edu, and an advisor or success coach will be in touch to provide support.

  • Need Tutoring? SSU’s LARC (Learning and Academic Resource Center) includes the Tutorial Program, Supplemental Instruction Program and the Writing Center. All LARC programs and services have shifted to be remote, mainly through Zoom. Appointments can be made online here: mywco.com/ssularc

  • Need support for Physical and Mental Health Concerns? If you are experiencing physical or mental health setbacks including stress please call Sonoma State’s Student Health Center (707-664-2921) or  Counseling and Psychological Services (707-664-2153). 

  • Concerned about your grades? If you are enrolled in courses that allow credit/no credit, you now have until April 17 to change the grade mode of your courses from letter grades to credit/no credit. We will provide a process for doing this in the next couple of days--stand by for more information. Please talk with your advisor about the impact of changing the grade mode of your courses on your semester and cumulative Sonoma State GPA. If you are a Veteran or have a scholarship that requires graded courses, please do not switch grade modes without checking with your advisor.

  • Concerned about financial aid? Contact your financial aid advisor at http://web.sonoma.edu/finaid/or (707) 664-2389. 

Concerned about how you are doing in your classes? We encourage you to reach out to your professors to ask questions so you can be successful in these challenging times. If you know who your advisor is, please contact him or her for a conversation. And please remember you can always email nomacares@sonoma.edu if you want advice or need help.
