California College of Communications has been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 virus and after considering the choices made by other institutions, colleges and universities statewide, CalCC has decided to stop in-person classes effective Monday, March 16, 2020, resuming in-person classes on April 6. Starting this Monday, the classes will continue online.
The school will monitor that the students are taking the online classes to guarantee that they follow a full course of study as required by federal regulations, Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP).
At the time of writing this notice there are no cases of COVID-19 related to our campus. At the end of the shutdown we will evaluate the situation and reconsider our options. Our primary concern is for the health and welfare of the students and our staff, that’s our first priority.
EDIT: CalCC will continue with online classes in our new session that starts April 6 to May 4th, 2020. We will reassess the situation at that time and inform you if we can start in-person classes again. Thank you for your understanding!
Our new session will start on August 31 and classes will continue online. Unfortunately, Santa Clara County did not make any decision regarding the re-start of in-person classes for the category of schools like CalCC. We are still hopeful that we will be able to start in-person classes in the session that starts on October 5. We will keep you informed of any updates as soon as they happen.
