New Communication to Students was sent out this afternoon. Please read the lastest update from President James O. Sawyer.

Macomb Community College is grateful for the support offered by our strong community during this difficult time. We are committed to doing everything we can to respond to our students’ needs. As you can imagine, many of our students are finding themselves without employment and income, struggling not only with tuition but also with basic life expenses. To address the hardships facing our students, Macomb Community College has established the Macomb Student Immediate Relief Fund. This fund will be available to all current credit and non-credit students and can assist with tuition and other immediate needs.

If you are able, please consider supporting this very important fund. Every gift matters. Now more than ever. Please support the Macomb Student Immediate Relief Fund.

With several presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 now identified in Michigan, we want to reassure you that we are actively monitoring the evolving situation. We continue to follow the guidance of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of the Governor and the Macomb County Health Department.

It is our goal to balance two imperatives: taking precautions to protect our college community and the communities around us, while continuing to deliver courses and key college services in a manner appropriate to circumstances.

As a result, we will be suspending on-campus, in-person classes beginning at 5 a.m., Thursday, March 12, through Sunday, March 22. This pause will allow us to work through the process of moving most classes online. Current online classes and offsite clinicals (unless notified by your instructor) will not be affected by this suspension.

During the suspension of on-campus, face-to-face instruction, college staff are to report.

We are also cancelling events through Sunday, April 12.

While the college will be closed during the suspension of on-campus, face-to-face instruction, we encourage you to call departments for resources and support.  

We will continue to monitor and make adjustments to protect the well-being of the college community. We appreciate your flexibility as we navigate through rapidly evolving circumstances.
