Marion Tech is now delivering all on-campus and College Credit Plus classes via remote instruction through May 2.
To slow transmission of the COVID-19 virus and be consistent with recommendations from state health authorities to limit large gatherings and practice social distancing, Marion Tech has taken the following preventative and proactive actions:
- March 16-20: All classes will be held via remote instruction.
- March 23-29: Spring break will occur as scheduled. The entire campus, including offices, will be closed.
- March 30-May 2: Campus offices will be closed to visitors. All classes will be held via remote instruction.
- Remote and online instruction will continue for the remainder of the spring semester until at least May 2.
- Clinical rotations, practicums and internships will continue, but face-to-face classes will cease.
- College Credit Plus (CCP) classes offered at our high school partner sites will also move to remote instruction via Canvas and other means.
- The study abroad trip to London and Paris has been postponed, with more information to follow.

However, if you or a member of your household is sick you should not come to campus.
We are taking all of these steps to ensure the health and safety of our campus community and to be proactive in an effort to prevent illness while continuing the academic mission of the college.
MTC recognizes that the change of moving courses from face-to-face sessions to distance learning during this period may create additional stress and anxiety for students. Information on the student support resources available to assist you can be found on our COVID-19 Information for Students page.
We will continue to monitor the outbreak and will align our recommendations with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization and other cities, state and federal agencies.
