Grand Rapids Community College is continuing its role in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic through the summer.
The college’s summer session classes will occur through distance learning starting in May.
GRCC has two seven-week sessions and one 14-week session with most classes starting May 11. The second seven-week session, which is scheduled to begin June 30, will incorporate both distance learning and face-to-face instruction. The college will determine by May 22 if there should be any changes.
“These are difficult decisions during challenging times,” GRCC Provost Brian Knetl said. “But we’ve also watched students, faculty and staff rise to the occasion. We’ve not wavered in our focus to provide a robust education while keeping safety and wellness our top priority.”
GRCC will temporarily waive online course fees for students who have only the option for distance learning during the 14-week and first seven-week sessions.
Advising and counseling services will be offered remotely. Staff from the Enrollment Center, the College Success Center and the Library and Learning Commons also are available to answer questions and assist with enrollment.
Students can contact GRCC’s Call Center at (616) 234-4000 for questions and information about summer enrollment.
