Additional Information

Why Are Some Classes Being Delivered Fully In-Person?

A small number of classes require in-person delivery. They are in specific areas such as Health Sciences, Law Enforcement or other hands-on type areas that require the use of specialized equipment. These classes cannot be delivered in any other way. Students will attend scheduled class days and times on campus with social-distancing and health precautions in place.

How Can Students Search for the Type of Classes They Want to Take?

Students should go to MDConnect/Class Search/Additional Criteria/Mode of Instruction. There they can browse classes offered in the various formats: MDC LIVE, Online, In-Person, and Blended.

Classes that require real-time attendance (either in-person or virtually) will include meeting days and times. Classes that don’t display meeting days and times do not require real-time attendance. Be advised, the class schedule is being updated regularly so it’s important to check your schedule occasionally to be sure you have the most up-to-date information.
