• MHCC Fall Term 2020


  • These are times like none other, but one fact will always remain the same: We are committed to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and community. That is why we have made the decision to move the start of Fall Term back to Monday, September 28.

    As a result of the delayed start to Fall Term , the following will also be delayed:

    • Registration deadline will now be September 27 at 11:59 p.m.
    • Financial Aid disbursement will be delayed one week.
    • Add/Drop deadline after the start of the term will be delayed one week.
    • The withdrawal date with a refund will now be Sunday, October 4 at 11:59 p.m.
    • The last day to withdraw from a course will now be November 13.

    Students who have questions about how this impacts their class schedule/course workload should speak with faculty/instructors directly.

    Bookstore Orders:

    • Some bookstore orders may be delayed due to air quality closures and inability for staff to work on campus this week.
    • Please understand that our bookstore employees have also been impacted by the fire and air quality and will not be able to return to work on campus until air quality dramatically improves.
    • We ask that you remain patient as we work to process the pending online orders.
    • Faculty and instructors have been asked to be flexible with students who may not yet have textbooks the first week of term.
    • Any questions or concerns regarding book orders can be directed to bookstorehelp@mhcc.edu

    Students in need of support services such as admissions, academic advising, financial aid or anything else are encouraged to fill out and submit a Student Support Services Request Form. We are here to help, even while we are apart, so please do not hesitate to reach out using this form and someone with the appropriate department at the college will contact you as soon as possible.

    Once term beings, we will still only be holding some courses and programs on campus with the rest being held online. In an effort to help students understand how their classes will be held this Fall, we have created a grid illustrating which programs will be taught fully online, face-to-face or a mix of both. If you do not see your program listed below, assume that it is going to be taught 100% online.

    Joining us on Campus this Fall? Do your part.

    We’re all in this together. Our safe return to holding some face-to-face classes relies on everyone taking responsibility.

    Maintain Good Personal Hygiene

    The safety of our community depends on our commitment to simple day-to-day hygiene measures, such as:

    • Physical distancing – Keeping at least 6 feet away from other people at all times.
    • Keeping Hands Clean – Wash your hands frequently, especially after being in a public place or blowing your nose, coughing, sneezing or touching your face. If you don’t have soap and water handy, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout our campuses.
    • Cover Your Sneeze or Cough – Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow, even when wearing a mask. Throw the used tissue in the trash and immediately wash your hands or use hand sanitizer.
    • Staying Home if You are Sick - If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, do not come to campus for work or class. You should immediately notify your supervisor and/or professor and follow guidelines for seeking medical care and self-quarantining.

    Sanitize Surfaces

    Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces, such as tables, doorknobs, desks and light switches. MHCC is committed to using cleaning supplies approved by the Oregon Health Authority. We are also maintaining a sufficient stock of cleaning supplies, sanitizers and disinfectants for cleaning campus and for providing to faculty, staff and students who will be teaching/taking face-to-face classes.

    Masks are Mandatory

    Face Mask Icon

    When you’re on campus, you are required to wear a mask in public spaces. Masks are critical to a safe and successful fall term at MHCC. You can have the virus without having symptoms, so protect yourself and others by wearing a mask in public.

    Self-monitor for Symptoms

    Know the symptoms of COVID-19 – and stay home if you are experiencing any of them. All faculty, staff and students who will be on campus should conduct symptom self-monitoring each day before coming to any of our facilities. You must be free of any symptoms potentially related to COVID-19. At this time, symptoms of COVID-19 include one or more of the following:

    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fever
    • Chills
    • Repeated shaking with chills
    • Runny nose or new sinus congestion
    • Muscle pain
    • Headache
    • Sore throat
    • Fatigue
    • New gastrointestinal symptoms
    • New loss of taste or smell

    This list does not include all possible symptoms. The CDC will continue to update this list as more is learned about COVID-19. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, do not come to campus for work or class. You should immediately notify your supervisor and/or professor and follow guidelines for seeking medical care and self-quarantining.
