UPDATE: The college district has waived the fees for parking permits for students and visitors. The story has been updated to reflect this information.

Contra Costa College will have a hybrid format for fall 2022, with 42 percent of courses being offered both online and in-person and 58 percent fully online, according to the Contra Costa Community College District.

While courses will be predominantly “online only” at all three County community colleges — including Diablo Valley College and Los Medanos College — there will be a significant increase in the number of opportunities to learn in person compared with spring 2022 and fall 2021, the college district said.

The units for online courses are accepted by 4-year universities and colleges.

All Contra Costa County community colleges still require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students taking in-person classes or who need to visit any campus facility.

But effective Monday, Aug. 15, the district will lift its mask mandate and instead “strongly encourages” the wearing of masks indoors.

For those driving to campus, note that parking will be enforced this fall. However, fees will be waived this semester for students and visitors with parking permits.

Parking permits are available Aug. 17 through Insite or MyCampusPermit.com.
