MOHAVE COUNTY – For the first time since last March, many Mohave Community College Student Services Division employees came back to campus this week, as the college eased pandemic restrictions on October 19.
A total of approximately two dozen employees are now back on the campuses, specifically to assist students and the public with a variety of services. These services include assistance filling out the free college application, enrolling in classes, providing financial aid information, and offering assistance with any of the college virtual portals for students.
“It’s great to see face-to-face services on all four campuses again because a lot of people prefer seeing college employees in person to get assistance,” said MCC Director of Communications James Jarman. “For those who would rather avoid face-to-face interaction, we still have all of our virtual platforms open and encourage people to use them.”
College advisors are not yet available for face-to-face appointments, but there is a designated Zoom meeting room on campus, so students can meet virtually with an advisor. Current students can also set up virtual advising meetings at home via the college online Student Support Connections portal at https://sso.mohave.edu/virtual-scheduling.
The on campus offices are open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and people are encouraged to first call 866-MOHAVECC, or 866-664-2832 to get questions answered.
The on campus student services are located in the following buildings:
- Bullhead City Campus building 200
- Kingman Campus building 300
- Lake Havasu City Campus building 200
- North Mohave Campus building 100
Campus maps and addresses can be found online at https://www.mohave.edu/life-at-mcc/campus-locations
Visitors will be required to wear a face covering, social distance and have their temperature checked before entering the buildings.
The enrollment window for spring semester classes opened this week, and those classes begin on January 19. Spring semester class schedules can be viewed online in the course search section of myMohave at https://jics.mohave.edu/ICS/Course_Search.jnz.
“Our faculty are planning right now to hold face-to-face on campus classes in January,” said Jarman. “It really depends on what’s happening with the virus at that time, as far as determining exactly how those on campus classes might look.”
If you are not a student, you can apply for free at https://apply.mohave.edu or on campus. For updated information regarding the college pandemic plan, visit Mohave.edu/coronavirus. Most college employees will continue to telecommute, and fall classes will continue to be held remotely and online, with many labs being held on campus. The college Pandemic Committee continues to monitor the situation with the virus and frequently provides the College President with updates and recommendations.
