CDC - What To Do if You Are Sick
Illinois Valley Community College will move to virtual delivery of all courses and services beginning Monday, March 23. The main campus and Ottawa Center are closed to the public until further notice.
College operations will continue but the public, students and non-essential employees will be prohibited from entering the campus or Ottawa Center without approval from a member of the senior leadership team.
“With the first coronavirus case reported today in La Salle County, we believe this is the best course of action to keep our campus safe,” said IVCC President Jerry Corcoran. “It also aligns with recommendations from Gov. Pritzker and the Illinois Community College Board.”
Classes resume Monday online-only. IVCC urges students to check their IVCC email account and if new to Blackboard, an online learning app, practice logging in.
Withdrawal date extended to April 30
IVCC is extending its 16-week course withdrawal deadline from April 7 to April 30, Vice President for Student Services Mark Grzybowski announced today.
“This will allow students more time and flexibility when making important decisions about their courses during this uncertain time,” Grzybowski said.
Summer/Fall Registration Begins April 16
Illinois Valley Community College will delay the start of 2020 summer and fall registration until Thursday, April 16, Vice President for Student Services Mark Grzybowski said today.
“This will allow students, faculty, and staff time to get through the additional spring break week and be better prepared to handle counseling, registration, and student technological support functions remotely,” Grzybowski said.
