Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Current classes are taking place in four formats: Live Online, Online, Hybrid, and In Person.

Mesa Community College transitioned to a remote work and services environment in response to the coronavirus. All Student Services, such as admissions, academic advising, testing, and financial aid advising, are available through online, chat and phone resources. A complete list is available by clicking on Virtual Student Services to the left. Students, staff, faculty, and the public should not come to campus unless you are essential staff, have an appointment, or are attending a class on campus.

MCC and our sister Maricopa Community Colleges have canceled all on-campus student activities and events through the end of the fall semester. Following the National Junior College Athletic Association adjusted schedule, MCC has tentatively moved fall and winter sports to spring 2021. Here is the proposed schedule.

The MCC bookstore is closed for in-store shopping. However, the staff is available to answer questions during regular business hours and you can order online.

This is an evolving situation. Updates are available from the Maricopa County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Mesa Community College is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our students, staff, and community members. MCC, which is one of the 10 colleges in the Maricopa County Community College District, is working with federal, state and District partners to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the recommended protocols to prevent the spread. The Maricopa County Public Health Department (MCPHD) is regularly updating its website with the number of cases.
