At this time, Whatcom Community College has ONE confirmed case of COVID-19. Please see the "Emails to Our Campus Community" section on our COVID-19 Information & Resources page for more details. 

Whatcom Community College’s physical campus is closed beginning Wednesday, March 25, 2020 for a minimum of two weeks to ensure alignment with Washington State Governor Jay Inslee’s statewide “Stay Home, Stay Healthy” order. Online instruction and working remotely will continue. Students and employees should not come to campus during this time. Spring quarter instruction will still begin online on Wednesday, April 15.

It is important to emphasize that Whatcom Community College remains operational and dedicated to ensuring the academic mission continues through this challenging time. We have moved services and instruction online to the greatest extent possible to keep our community healthy. Remote services will differ for various service areas, departments, and resources. Visit this remote services directory to learn how you can easily access the WCC services you need without visiting campus. 

Please continue to check your email and for regular updates.
