Montcalm Community College responds to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
The safety and well-being of our students, staff and visitors is of the utmost importance at all times. Therefore, MCC is moving its classes to an online format effective Monday, March 16, and hopes to resume face-to-face instruction April 14. The college is focusing on helping students and faculty have a smooth transition and will provide additional services to support students as they transition to this platform.
With the COVID-19 virus picking up momentum, our Executive Team and Crisis Management Team are continuing to meet multiple times per day to monitor the situation and make decisions based on recommendations from health and legislative officials.
