When will CE classes resume and students be allowed back on campus?
The majority of CE classes are being offered online for the Spring and Summer 21 semesters. A few select classes may be conducted in-person, on-campus subject to safety rules established by the college.
Our spring catalog and summer catalog are available online at ce.harpercollege.edu. This year, the InZone catalog is included in the summer CE catalog, and printed catalogs will be sent out in early April. Please note that changes to the schedule may have taken place since it was printed, based on changing conditions. The most accurate information is available on our website by searching for your interests or browsing our courses. Registered students will receive information specific to your class, generally one to two days before class starts.
At this time we cannot project when we might resume a full schedule of in-person classes.
If I start taking classes online will I be able to continue with online learning once classes return to campus?
Yes. The implementation of online classes is not just a response to the pandemic but rather a permanent addition to our schedule.
Who should take online classes?
Online classes should be taken by anyone who wants to continue learning without coming onto the campus. There are some basic requirements and skills that you will need to be a successful online learner. You should consult with our Technical Requirements for Online Learning document to determine your readiness. You can also follow the Online Classes link from the CE homepage.
