SF Following CDC Guidelines – Promoting Social Distancing By Moving Classes Online

March 16, 2020 – Santa Fe College began presenting increased online courses as the new week began. Over the weekend, the college worked at moving 1,040 classes from in-person to online instruction. The college is prepared to continue online classes through at least March 30, 2020.

The Northwest Campus and all SF centers will be open and staffed as usual and will continue to provide student services. The College will continue to remain operational so long as it is safe and based on recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control, the Florida Department of Health and local health agencies.

Students who are transitioning to online classes and are having difficulty connecting can contact the Santa Fe College Help Desk by calling 352-395-5999 or

The SF Help Desk is now available weekdays from 8 a.m. through midnight.

The college is also very concerned for our students who may become even more economically vulnerable as a result of closings and cancelations associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. SF has an online Emergency Aid page which offers many services including information on financial, food, clothing and other resources students may encounter as a result of businesses and services closing or becoming less available as a result of the pandemic.

The college leadership team is continually monitoring this situation as it evolves and will respond with measures that are in the best interest of our college, our community and our society. Please continue to monitor our Santa Fe College website at for official updates. The COVID19 page also has a section of frequently asked questions and a list of events and closures involving the college.
