Due to the extension of the Governor Pritzker’s Stay-at-Home order, Highland Community College has adjusted course offerings for the pre-summer session. Each course was individually reviewed with the instructor’s preference. Most of the three-week pre-summer courses needed to canceled, whereas some are going hybrid. Hybrid courses will start online and finish in-person while abiding by social distancing guidelines.
“Our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our students,” said Jennifer Grobe, PhD, RN, CNE, Associate Dean of Nursing & Allied Health. “We have nursing students that need labs to finish their degrees. By adjusting our course offerings, they can complete their requirements, and hopefully, graduate on time.”
Pre-Summer (May 18-June 4) Canceled Courses
British Literature, ENGL 227
Introduction to Music, MUS 267
Introduction to Phlebotomy, NURS 107
First Aid, PHYD 212
The summer session courses starting June 8 are moving online. Those with lab components and special circumstances are under review on an individual basis determined by the division dean and instructor. Highland hopes to announce more information about these courses within the weeks ahead. Students can contact their advisor or instructor with questions.
