All MCC students must complete a daily health screening before entering campus. You can answer screening questions at an authorized campus entrance checkpoint or, to save time, you can complete the screening online (click on button above) or via the MCC mobile app.
Thank you for staying vigilant, Tribunes!
Thank you for studying with us and for doing your part to stay healthy and safe. Be sure to check your MCC email often and this web page for important updates.
In order to keep campus population density to a minimum, do not come to campus unless you have an appointment or valid reason to do so. Guests are not allowed on campus at this time. Only students taking an in-person class/lab, having an appointment or visiting the MCC Bookstore* will be allowed on campus. This applies to all students at the Applied Technologies Center, Brighton Campus and Downtown Campus. Questions? Contact us via email.
New! Mandatory COVID-19 pooled testing
COVID-19 pooled testing is required for all students who live, learn and participate in athletics-related activities on campus. Visit our pooled testing web page for more information and check your MCC email for scheduled appointments. Students who fail to attend at least two scheduled appointments, without a sufficient excuse, will be sanctioned, according to SUNY guidelines.
The SUNY COVID-19 Case Tracker provides you with up-to-date data on COVID-19 testing and other vital information for SUNY’s 64 colleges and universities, including MCC. You can view information on system-wide or campus-by-campus levels.
Students who test positive for COVID-19 should immediately contact Jackie Carson, RN, BSN, MCC Health Services, at (585) 292-2018 or email Health Services. Your name and personal information will remain confidential. Positive test results are confirmed by the Monroe County Department of Public Health.
What should I expect if I have class/lab on campus?
- If you feel ill, do not come to campus.
- Feel free to park in Lot A this fall to be closer to the Brighton Campus entrance. More info about parking was recently shared in the Student Tribune.
- Give yourself an additional 10-15 minutes extra time to get to your classroom. There is one authorized entrance per campus. The Brighton Campus entrance is located at the first (ground) floor of the Spina Administration Building (look for the sliding glass doors).
- Complete a COVID-19 self-assessment before coming to campus each day.
To save time, download the free MCC mobile app available in the IOS app store or Android play store. Search for “Monroe Community College” and look for the MCC black and gold shield. The app includes the COVID-19 self-assessment. You can show the results screen at the checkpoint using your phone.
- Bring your MCC ID and wear a face mask or you will not be granted access to campus buildings. Don't have an ID yet? Contact the Photo ID Office to order your ID completely online. In the meantime, bring another form of photo ID and your M# to the checkpoint.
- Prepare to socially distance and do your part to keep your learning spaces clean and safe. Hand sanitizer and cleaning materials will be available in each classroom/lab for you to use before and after class. Common spaces will be cleaned throughout the day, with deep cleaning occurring each night.
- Do not eat in class; closable water bottles may be allowed.
- Observe all campus signage.
Most MCC students are not required to have a COVID-19 test before coming to campus. Exceptions include students who live in the residence halls. Contact MCC Health Services for more information.
*Please note: Students no longer need an appointment to visit the MCC Bookstore on the Brighton Campus. At the authorized campus entry checkpoint, let our Public Safety staff know that you are going to the bookstore. The entrance to the bookstore is located on the second floor of the Flynn Campus Center. The MCC Downtown Bookstore is temporarily closed. Curbside pick up and online shopping are also available.
Distance and In-person Learning
This fall, the vast majority of courses will be delivered through distance learning formats. In order to encourage social distancing and reduce campus population density, a limited number of courses and labs that require hands-on learning will be held on campus. Learn more about course formats in our online catalog. We are here to help you in any way we can.
If you do not have access to a computer: 1) notify your professor; 2) apply for an MCC Dreamkeepers emergency grant, stating that you need a laptop to complete your studies this fall, and/or 3) contact the Student Technology HelpDesk. Limited on-campus access to technology in MCC libraries/learning commons will be offered this fall by appointment. Please check back for updates.
