Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Fall classes will be provided in a variety of formats, including online, in-person, and hybrid classes. Class formats are subject to change, based on public health guidelines. View credit course listings at https://hcc-ecss01.hagerstowncc.edu:8173/Student/Courses and non-credit courses at www.hagerstowncc.edu/webadvisor.

NOTE: Students, employees, and visitors are required to complete a health screening prior to each campus visit. Students and employees will use the Go Evo phone app. Students who are required to be on campus for classes will receive an email with a link to download the app a few days prior to the start of classes. Other students and visitors must use the self check-in stations located at the main entrance of every building.

Returning to Campus/Check-In

If you plan to come to campus, please read more about the steps and requirements necessary for everyone returning on our Campus Check-In page.

Modified Class Formats

In order to ensure a safe learning environment, many classes will be held online. For classes such as labs, clinicals, simulations, developmental courses, applied classes, adult literacy, English language learners, and performance-based classes, a combination of in-person and online classes will be held. Classes that do not require a hands-on component will meet fully online.

For courses that meet in person, classrooms have been adjusted to meet CDC guidelines to enforce social distancing, and campus cleaning and sanitization have been enhanced.

When scheduling classes through Self-Service, class formats will be identified as one of the following: 

  • Web - Fully online and may require scheduled virtual meetings times. 
  • Hybrid - Half of the class will meet on campus on a designated day and the other half will meet on campus on a different day. Your faculty member will contact you with your assigned day. On your non-campus day, you are expected to complete online work.
  • Lecture - Students are required to be on campus. 

Enhanced Health & Safety On Campus

Students, employees, and visitors are required to complete a health screening prior to each campus visit. Students and employees will use the Go Evo phone app. Students who are required to be on campus for classes will receive an email with a link to download the app a few days prior to the start of classes. Other students and visitors must use the self check-in stations located at the main entrance of every building. Employees and students are reminded to avoid coming to campus if they exhibit any symptoms related to COVID-19. 

Classrooms have been adjusted to meet CDC guidelines to enforce social distancing, and campus cleaning and sanitization efforts have been greatly enhanced. Face masks are required on campus for employees, students, and visitors.
