McHenry County College in Crystal Lake will offer students five learning options when it returns to school next month.

MCC canceled in-person classes in March and conducted classes remotely for the remainder of the spring to help stop the spread of COVID-19. For the fall, which is scheduled to start Aug. 17, in-person and remote classes will be offered.


According to MCC's website, students can register online with the following five learning options:

- In-person classes, which meet on campus. If needed, classes will transition to an online format.

- Flexible lecture classes, which allow a student to choose between going to campus, staying home and watching a live stream or watching a recorded class before the next course session.

- Blended classes, which meet partially on campus and partially online. If needed, classes will transition to a full online format.

- Scheduled online classes, which are conducted online through Canvas. Classes take place at a specific time.

- Flexible online classes, which are conducted exclusively online through Canvas. Students work through course materials with an MCC instructor.

MCC has also implemented protective measures on campus, including required face coverings, hand sanitation stations, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning and sanitation, limited-contact interactions, regular health screenings and frequent safety reminders.

MCC's full list of health and safety policies, protocols and guidelines for returning to campus can be found here.
