Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Masks are required indoors while on campus. Beginning January 7, 2022, MCC faculty and staff will be required to have COVID-19 vaccinations.

All Student Services, such as admissions, academic advising, testing, and financial aid advising, are available virtually through online, chat, and phone resources and in person inside our enrollment centers.

*MCC serves as a COVID testing drive-thru location. Those wishing to be tested should visit to schedule a date and time. Find Arizona testing sites at this ADHS link.

Health experts stress that the pandemic is not over and we should still take measures such as vaccinations, masks and physical distancing to protect ourselves and others. Current COVID-19 statistics and updates are available at 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. One of 10 colleges in the Maricopa County Community College District, MCC is working with federal, state, city, and District partners to monitor the COVID-19 situation and the recommended protocols to prevent the spread.

There are things you can do to prevent catching and spreading COVID-19. Please continue to follow all public health protocols, including getting a vaccination, wearing a face covering and practicing social distancing.

Masks Required

MCC requires that all individuals – faculty, staff, students, and visitors – wear facial coverings while indoors at any of our facilities. We believe this decision will provide the best chance to maintain our in-person learning experiences for our students. We continue to monitor the evolving mask and face-covering guidelines.

The continuance of this mask mandate provides the best chance to maintain our in-person learning experiences while protecting the health, safety, and security of our students, faculty, and staff. While not everyone may be able or willing to be vaccinated, masks allow us to respect each individual within our community, while also addressing the safety concerns associated with the current circumstances.

Vaccine Requirements

MCC does not require students to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. However, we continue to strongly encourage everyone to obtain a vaccine so that we may maintain a workplace that is free of known hazards and safeguard our community’s health from infectious diseases, such as COVID-19. Beginning Jan. 7, 2022, MCC faculty and staff will be required to have COVID-19 vaccinations, in accordance with the President's Executive Order requiring all employees of federal contractors, which MCC is, to receive COVID-19 vaccinations or request and have approved a reasonable accommodation.
