Kellogg Community College announced today it is extending the closure of its buildings and facilities until Monday, June 1, in order to comply with government guidance and prevent gatherings of people during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.

The College formally closed its physical campuses in Barry, Branch and Calhoun counties as of noon March 18 and most recently announced it would reopen May 18 in alignment with the State of Michigan’s stay-at-home executive order. In light of the state’s latest announcement regarding restrictions on places of public accommodation, KCC also extended its campus closure. As of today, KCC plans to reopen its facilities to employees and the public on June 1.

During the facility closure, KCC is 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.
