Frequently Asked Questions
To learn how departments at MJC are accommodating you during the Coronavirus remote instruction period, please read the Contingency Plans for Departments.
What does it mean to move to “Remote Learning”?
Remote Learning means your instructor will move their class from a face-to-face traditional setting to a different form of learning that does not require meeting together. This may include Canvas, Zoom, or other methods that allow a class to meet virtually.
What does it mean to “Suspend” a class or activity?
For classes, “Suspended” means temporarily not meeting and resuming at a later date. For events, at this time, it means the same thing, but the college is hopeful that some of the activities will be able to happen later this semester.
When will classes resume face-to-face?
At this time we are committed to remote learning through April 5. However, we are evaluating the situation daily and will make decisions as new information becomes available.
Can I still come to campus?
Beginning March 20, all buildings and services on campus are no longer accessible. Chat with us on mjc.edu.
What if I have an online class?
All online classes still meet online with no interruptions.
Can I see a counselor?
Our counselors will be meeting with students remotely. No face-to-face appointments will be available.
Can I still use the Library or see a tutor?
The library is closed through April 5, but you still have access to tutoring through NetTutor. Find the NetTutor link in your Canvas class shell to access tutoring on a variety of subjects.
Is MJC closed?
MJC is not closed; while our buildings on campus will be closed, our classes continue to run remotely and our services will still be available via our website.
