Harper College Advisory

Fall 2020 Courses

To help protect the Harper College community, most classes will take place entirely online, but some labs and courses that benefit from hands-on learning will take place on campus. Access to campus is limited to students enrolled in on-campus courses, faculty and staff supporting those courses, and other essential personnel. Students should limit their time on campus by leaving right after class is complete.

What to know to come on to campus:

You can get to your classes through designated entrances in Avanté, Building H, Building A and Building M. Everyone will go through a screening station upon entry. See hours of operation.

  • Harper IDs are required for everyone who will be on campus.
  • Screening stations have plexiglass barriers, no-contact thermometers, sanitizers, disinfecting wipes and other supplies/equipment.
  • Face masks are required at all times in buildings, as well as outdoors where social distancing cannot be maintained. If you cannot wear a mask for any reason, you must request an accommodation through the Office of the Dean of Students before coming onto campus. Medical accommodations require a physician’s note.
  • Social distancing is required.
  • Ten or fewer people will be permitted in a classroom.
  • Enhanced cleaning measures are happening in public spaces and classrooms.
  • Hallways, stairways and elevators will have directional signage.
  • Students will be asked to leave immediately after their lab time.

We continue to monitor available data and local, state and federal guidelines. Depending on how the situation evolves, we may have to adjust the plan to a fully online learning environment.
