Welcome to the Spring Semester

SMCC will offer most of its courses online during the Spring Semester, with a limited number of in-person classes for academic programs that require hands-on learning.  Advising, Financial Aid, Student Billing and the Learning Commons will support students online and by email, phone and/or teleconferencing.

SMCC released an overview of its Spring Semester plan last month in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The start of the semester begins Jan. 19 as scheduled, but hands-on classes for the most part won’t be offered in-person until Feb. 1. The bookstore will be closed through Feb. 8, but purchases can be made online.

Student support offices are offering their services in a variety of ways.
