Coronavirus: Campus Information and Updates

Updated: Wednesday, August 5, at 4:30 p.m.

  • Fall Semester at MCC Begins on Aug. 24  – As we prepare to begin the Fall 2020 Semester, our foremost goal is to keep our students, faculty, staff, and college community safe while continuing to provide the high-quality education that has been a Muskegon Community College hallmark for nearly 100 years. To view what we are doing to ensure your safety, including the way we will be offering classes, click here.
  • Summer Semester began with all online or hybrid classes. Some face-to-face classes started June 15. This is subject to change if the Governor’s Orders extend past that date or we feel we cannot safely provide face-to-face instruction. See Student FAQs, Employee FAQs, and Keep Teaching buttons below for more information.
  • Supporting Our Students –  Since the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, MCC has quickly acted to assist our current and incoming students with regard to their health and safety concerns, their sudden transition to remote learning,  their apprehensions about being able to begin and/or continue their MCC education, and their ability to earn their degrees and certificates on time.

  • CARES Act and Emergency Grants – Muskegon Community College received $1.12 million from the federal government through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund.  This funding provides emergency grants to students whose lives have been disrupted by COVID-19.
