TWIN FALLS, Idaho — The College of Southern Idaho will welcome back students and the broader community back to campus beginning Monday, June 22. Based on information shared by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, and South-Central Public Health District (SCPHD), the College will reopen campus with the safety and well-being of students and employees in mind.

Main Campus offices in Twin Falls will reopen to walk-in traffic on Monday, June 22, at 8:00 a.m. Some offices may be temporarily relocated to achieve social distancing. CSI advises everyone to be attentive to signage on building entrances regarding any temporary office locations.

The college will begin its fall semester on August 24.
