Innovations in Creating Access To Careers in Health Care
For everyone’s health and safety all college offices are closed to the public Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, April 24. College offices will reopen to the public on April 27.
Employees are serving students and the community remotely during this time. Please check back for updates on this website for access to services available online, by email, or phone.
Spring quarter registration is open. Register online at edcc.edu/schedule. Spring quarter classes begin April 13.
- All spring quarter classes will be held 100% online for the entire quarter April 13 through June 19.
- Exception: Classes with a hands-on component will be online April 13 through May 17. The hands-on portion of the class will be offered in person from May 18 through June 19 (unless we hear otherwise from the state. As of now, the state is allowing this exception). However, the social distancing guideline must be maintained.
- It will take us some time to figure out which classes have a hands-on component that should be completed in person. Once it’s been determined, the online class schedule will be updated to let you know if a class has a hands-on component. Please check back often for updates.
All college updates, resources, and information about COVID-19 is available at edcc.edu/coronavirus. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
