Returning to Campus

Montgomery College is beginning a gradual shift back to on-campus, in-person operations. 

For Students: For summer and fall 2021, we are moving toward offering more in-person classes and student services. Many fall classes will still be fully online, but classes that focus on hands-on skills and learning experiences will meet on campus. Most lab sections are scheduled on-campus for the fall semester.

For Employees: Faculty and staff have begun a gradual return to campus. Beginning August 2, 2021, all staff employees are required to work on site at least two days a week
