Revised April 1,2020 


MCC’s classes will continue online through the end of spring semester

Montcalm Community College’s Executive Team members have decided that all spring classes will continue in the online format until the end of spring semester on May 1.

Students should continue to look for course updates from your instructors in Canvas. If you are in a course that requires lab time, you will receive updates directly from your instructor on options for completion. In addition, the college will continue to deliver support services through online methods to the extent possible. Those options are outlined below.

MCC’s campuses continue to be closed. We originally planned to reopen facilities on Tuesday, April 14; however, the college’s Executive Team will be reevaluating this and more information will be sent to you next week.
