Credit classes. After a four-day hiatus, face-to-face and blended credit classes are scheduled to resume on Friday, March 20 in remote formats through the end of the semester. (Previously, MCCC had announced that this change was until “further notice.”) The current semester ends May 4. All online courses have and will continue to run as originally scheduled. Students enrolled in laboratory and clinical courses, fieldwork, internships and co-ops, and direct college at high schools are being contacted by their instructors for direction. All students should continue to regularly monitor their MCCC email.

Employees, students and campus visitors are encouraged to refrain from coming to campus if they are sick. They are also encouraged to continue effective hygiene practices as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control.
