KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Early Friday evening, the Kellogg Community College (KCC) announced its extension of the closure of its buildings and facilites until Monday, June 1, in order to comply with government guidance and prevent gatherings of people during the COVID-19 pandemic.
KCC formally closed its physical campuses in Barry, Branch and Calhoun as of 12 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18, and had most recently announced it would reopen May 18 in alignment with the State of Michigan's stay-at-home executive order.
During the facility closure, KCC is still accepting registrations for students who wish to sign up for Summer 2020 classes, which begin as early as May 11. The summer semester, during which courses are primarily online, will begin May 11 as planned.
Access to buildings during the closure is limited to essential personnel who are specifically identified to conduct minimum basic operations.
Students are encouraged to monitor their KCC email accounts daily and communicate their questions and concerns directly to their instructors. Additionally, they may submit specific questions regarding services -- financial aid, online tutoring and more -- via KCC's Virtual Services web page at www.kellogg.edu/virtualservices.
