Mitchell Community College Update: Friday, March 20


Mitchell Community College administration continues to work with local and state health officials to monitor the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation. Our number one priority is always the safety and health of our students and employees.

Beginning on Monday, March 23, 2020 classes will be offered online until further notice. Please note that not all of our classes will be available online. All traditional/seated Continuing Education and workforce programs are suspended beginning March 23, 2020 until further notice.

Limited exceptions to the suspension of face-to-face instruction include critical state and local response programs such as:

Law enforcement/Basic Law Enforcement Training (BLET)
Fire training
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA)
Registered Nursing (RN)

Students in the above programs should connect with their instructors and/or program coordinators regarding coursework. Mitchell administration will continue to work with the North Carolina Community College System Office to determine how classes that are unable to transition or fully-transition online instruction will be conducted.

Due to the variety of courses and training opportunities at Mitchell, students are advised to communicate directly with their instructors for specific instructions pertaining to their class(es). Faculty have been directed to provide maximum flexibility to students during this time.

All students are advised to check their Mitchell email for additional information.

An updated plan for the College will be announced at or before 5 p.m. on Friday, March 27, 2020.
