    How do I access my online class?

    Will I be screened to access campus facilities?

    All students and prospective students will need to complete an online screening form ( Complete the form prior to leaving your home to travel to campus. Based on the responses you will receive entry results in both your browser and an email (either a green check or a Red X). Upon arrival to campus, show the email with the timestamp to the College-appointed designee with your check-in status.

    If you do not have access to the internet on your phone, a paper questionnaire will be available at the entrance to allow for a self-evaluation and awareness of COVID-19 concerns.

    Anyone who self identifies a health issue within the questionnaire will be asked NOT to come to campus until the issues have been resolved.  We implore all students that if they feel ill that they stay home and contact their instructor.  All efforts will be made to help you to catch up on missed work.  

    If I come to the College’s campus for an appointment or preapproved face-to-face class, what should I expect?

    All entrants to the campus are required to wear a cloth face covering that covers the mouth and nose that meets CDC guidelines while on campus. Face covering must always be worn in any classroom/lab and any public area of the College by students, staff and faculty. 

    Face coverings are the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Face Shields do not protect others from droplet spread without the required face mask. 

    Physical distancing requirements will be adhered to and based on the Center for Disease Control and Prevention Guidelines. Screenings will also be required before entering College facilities. For more information please visit the College’s COVID-19 webpage that is routinely updated at
