Remote Learning During the COVID-19 Pandemic
These are challenging times for us all. But, we’re here for you.
Here’s what you need to know.
The December 6, 2020 Stay-Home Order Does Not Impact In-Person Classes or Finals
Contra Costa College in-person class meetings were already operating within the parameters of the new order.
Spring Registration is Now in Progress!
Most Classes are Entirely Online
Our students’ and employees’ health and safety are our top priorities. In order to keep our students and employees as safe as possible during this unprecedented time, we will continue to provide predominantly remote instruction and students services during the fall semester. Know that we are dedicated to making your experience a positive one.
Some Hybrid Online / In-Person Courses are Also Being Offered
Because some courses cannot be effectively taught fully online, a small number of courses will be offered in a hybrid format, which means that a limited number of students will be invited to campus to receive in-person instruction on defined days and times. These classes will be offered in a format that will allow for appropriate social distancing and the observance of additional safety protocols.
Your Safety Is Important to Us
To help keep you safe, we are committed to the following safety protocols:
- A clean campus and disinfected learning spaces
- Access to hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes in every classroom
- Clear, proactive communication about how to keep yourself safe
Student Services are Still Operating, Remotely
In fact, you can now reach them faster than ever! Most of our student services will still be responding to emails and answering their phone lines remotely, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday – Thursday. Student services are closed on Fridays for the time being, with the exception of Friday, August 21, when student services will be open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Your meetings and appointments will simply have to be moved to phone, video or online chats.
Unless You Have a Class Meeting or Appointment, Do Not Come to Campus
Campus is still closed to students, except for those attending hybrid courses or coming to a small number of in-person appointments the week of August 24.
An important exception is the bookstore, which remains open.
Adhere to All Safety Procedures If You Are Allowed to Come to Campus
Students who come to campus are required to follow the safety protocols in the Student Safety Checklist.
