Fall Classes Update

Dear MCC Student,

 

I know that the past two months have been filled with more uncertainty than you ever expected. With the many health and safety unknowns due to COVID-19, the “Real World” has changed. I wanted you to know and be assured that your college has changed, too, to better meet your needs.

We continue to develop flexible learning options to ensure that you meet your education goals during this time. Our college teams also are developing plans to meet social distancing and health requirements for you in class when it is safe to return to the college’s campuses. We are strengthening virtual student support for those online and remote classes as well.

As a reminder, we are offering a number of summer classes in an online-only format at our College. A few hands-on classes are tentatively scheduled for the summer as well based on Governor Beshear’s timelines for facility use. If you have not done so, now is a good time to enroll. Please reach out to your academic advisor for help with registration.

To help facilitate online learning, we have increased the accessibility of Wi-Fi in our parking lots near our buildings. I know this is not a perfect solution, but it is one way we can provide access to online learning while still following the strict guidelines in place to protect everyone at the college. Signs are posted on campus at locations with strong Wi-Fi signals. Our current locations are listed below:

  • Glema Mahr Center
  • Joe C. Davis Building
  • John H. Gray Building (North and South Parking)
  • Steve Beshear Education Center
  • Muhlenberg Campus

Beginning August 17, fall term classes will be offered in a variety of formats. There will be fully online classes as well as face-to-face classes and some options that are a mixture of both (barring any disruption from pandemic response). Face-to-face classes will have a strong online or remote instruction part, so if in-person classes must move online for a while you will be ready. And, there are a variety of scheduling options, including 16-week, 12-week, and 8-week sessions so you can take classes when it fits your schedule.

If you have any questions or want to know more, please go to www.madisonville.kctcs.edu for more information.

We are all facing a challenging new Real World. You are not alone. MCC is in your corner and offering flexible options to face it with you.

Stay safe and stay MCC Strong!  I look forward to seeing all of you soon!

 

My best,

Cindy
