Copper Mountain College will resume offering in-person classes in addition to maintaining many online offerings for Fall 2021.

CMC is hopeful for some normalcy for fall now that COVID-19 vaccines are available for everyone over the age of 12. Along with many students, CMC is excited to return to a traditional and more connected college experience. While subject to change, the in-person fall courses will potentially have reduced room capacities (to promote social distancing) according to guidelines provided by the county of San Bernardino and the CDC. Although students will be back in person, the existing COVID mitigation protocols (such as face coverings, social distancing, etc.) are expected to still be in place for the fall term. CMC’s Facilities department will continue to ensure proper cleaning and sanitation for all utilized spaces. “We are very excited to have students back on campus,” Dr. Otten, Superintendent/President, shared.

Potentially reduced room capacities mean that there may be fewer seats in on-campus classes. CMC plans to add additional sections where demand indicates. Students are encouraged to register for classes early and indicate interest in a “full” class by adding themselves to the waitlist. Online class capacity is not affected for the fall.

Student Services will continue to be open during regular business hours to serve students in person while maintaining all the remote capabilities they have had this past year. Online appointments to meet with a counselor can be made by contacting Admissions and Records at admissions&
