Co-Lin, all MS community colleges to open in fall

All 15 community colleges around the state will resume traditional classes in the fall.

According to a statement released by the Mississippi Association of Community Colleges, all schools will resume regular operations by the time August rolls around. This will include all three campuses of Copiah-Lincoln Community College.

“Mississippi community colleges are looking forward to students returning to our campuses and dorms in the fall of 2020 for an exceptional college experience,” MACC President and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College President Mary S. Graham said. “We are following recommended safety protocols to create safe learning, living, and working environments for all.”

Community colleges in Mississippi were forced to move to an all-online format in March due to the outbreak of COVID-19. Since then, each community college has established protocol to safely restart traditional operations at their campuses.

As for Co-Lin, they plan to reopen in the fall, but not without a plan. If necessary, the college can switch to an online format in the case of another COVID-19 outbreak.

“It is Copiah-Lincoln Community College’s intention to reopen our campuses this fall and offer on-site instruction along with the traditional residential experience for our students,” said President Jane Hulon. “Our team has been busy doing a lot of background work to ensure we are ready to institute the necessary safety precautions in all areas of the college that will be part of the new normal as students return to campus. We are being proactive in ensuring that our fall plans are fluid in the instance we need to react to stricter health guidelines and recommendations all while continuing to provide a quality education.”

Co-Lin officials will continue to release information as it becomes more available, but are committed to upholding guidelines released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
