April 2 Student Communication

We hope this message finds you healthy and making the adjustment to online learning. From the beginning of this crisis, your health, safety and success have been our top priority. As we continue to follow guidance from state and federal officials, we have made the following decisions:

  • All college locations will remain closed through at least April 30.

  • Course delivery via online (Canvas and Zoom) will continue through the end of the term. If you are not already actively engaged with the faculty in your courses, please log in into Canvas and go to your course page for more information.

  • The graduation ceremony scheduled for May 14 (MCC), May 18 (CCC) and May 19 (SCC) has been cancelled. We are working on alternative plans to celebrate our graduates, but be assured earned academic awards will be granted in a timely manner.

Much has changed this Spring Semester, but I want to assure you that our commitment to you as a student has not wavered. Our faculty continue to work on providing quality content in your courses while respecting these changing circumstances and the need for a little grace and flexibility. College staff are here to help you in any way we can. Many resources are available online and by phone, and we will continue to communicate important information to you as we finalize additional plans to support your success.

Please continue to check the EICC web page for the latest official EICC COVID-19 related information eicc.edu/covid19, links to our remotely delivered student resources eicc.edu/c19studentservices, and links to community resources eicc.edu/c19resources, with information including unemployment, social services agencies, small business assistance and wifi resources.

We realize that this has been a difficult time for you and your family, and on behalf of the college community, let me extend our best wishes, hopes and prayers to you. Please reach out to your instructors and advisors through Canvas or email if there is anything we might be able to do to help you be successful, and if you have not already done so, please complete the survey recently sent to you with your feedback.

Stay safe and healthy. Finish strong.
