The Contra Costa Community College District, home to Contra Costa College in San Pablo as well as two additional colleges and educational centers, will be holding its spring 2021 semester courses and student services predominantly online due to the pandemic. The district has been operating remotely since March 16 of this year.

While the majority of student instruction will be held online, some “hard-to-convert” courses and labs will continue to be held on campus while closely following County health guidelines to ensure the safety of everyone.

“We thought it was best to make this decision as early as possible to give our students, classified professionals, faculty and administrators the opportunity to plan accordingly,” said Interim Chancellor Gene Huff.

“This has been a challenging time for many of our students who are taking online courses for the first time and we want to thank them for their perseverance and flexibility. Our many support services like tutoring and counseling are ready to assist our students achieve their academic goals with us,” he added.

Registration for the district’s spring 2021 courses starts in November and depends on a student’s priority. Students can visit their InSite account or college website to peruse classes that may be offered and to get more info.
