Attention

Classes will be held ONLINE until March 30th due to the Coronavirus.

Please check your email, moodle, and other student portals for information from your instructors about how we will be making this transition. This was not an easy decision and will require effort by all parties to ensure that our transition to online learning is successful. Please contact instructors with questions about how they will be proceeding with their classes, as each instructor may have different expectations. Please use this as an opportunity to stay home, stay healthy, and make use of your time to catch up on work for your classes!

Students Without Internet

We fully realize that the transition to online classes will present a challenge to some of our students may not readily have access to technology or internet. However, there are some options that will allow these students to access to technology and internet.

 

One option is our learning labs. We will have scheduled hours at all three campuses that our computer and learning labs will be open for student use. This will allow computer and internet access for those who may not otherwise have it.

 

Another option for students with a computer at home but no internet access is working with a company, for example, Charter/Spectrum, who is offering two months of free internet to college students who don’t have it. There is a toll free number to call. Comcast is doing the same for low-income families. We’ll put together a full list of such resources and share them with you as soon as possible.
