Montgomery College Is Open Remotely – 
Access to All Campuses Is Restricted

Most classes and student services continue to be offered remotely.

Status for current and upcoming semesters: 

Spring 2021: Most classes are fully online. Students in certain programs may come to campus for some face-to-face classes. Many 7-week classes begin March 29. Search for classes and register.

Summer 2021: Most classes will be fully online. Students in certain programs may come to campus for some face-to-face classes. Summer course offerings will be posted March 22. 

Fall 2021: The fall semester will begin with most classes fully online. Students in certain programs may come to campus for some face-to-face classes. Fall course offerings will be posted April 12.

  • If you start a class online, it will remain online. Classes will not switch from online to face-to-face in the middle of the semester. 
  • Classes that begin face-to-face may switch to online format for health and safety reasons. 
  • Classes that start in the second half of the fall semester may be face-to-face if health conditions allow. 

Most noncredit courses are fully online until further notice. Noncredit courses run year-round with classes starting weekly. See noncredit course schedules and register.

Until further notice:

  • Students, faculty, and staff should not come to campus unless approved to do so. 
  • Continue remote work, with limited on-site work for approved positions in phases/staggered shifts.
  • Practice social distancing. 
  • If on campus, you must wear a face covering that covers the nose, mouth, and chin at all times. The only exceptions are while eating or drinking (during which you must maintain social distance from others). 
    • A plastic face shield alone or a face covering with a valve is not an acceptable form of a face covering. 
    • Spaces under direct control of contractors (e.g., Leggett Building) are under the control of the general contractor's COVID-19 protocols. MC employees who must visit contractor-controlled sites must adhere to MC face-covering protocols. 
  • All College-sponsored travel is restricted.
  • No facilities or athletic field rentals or community use.
  • No student-sponsored events hosted on College campuses.
