I hope this message finds you well and enjoying your summer. I am writing to provide a brief update on how the College is working to continue to ensure the health and safety of all students, faculty and staff in light of COVID-19. The goal is to provide regular communication so that you remain informed about the College’s efforts as we navigate these uncertain times together.
So, what else do you need to know?
Student Services Are Available
A small number of offices are providing services to students on campus by appointment. Others are offering services virtually. Here are the student services currently available on the Main Campus by appointment: Enrollment Services (Financial Aid and Records and Registration); placement testing; and the Student Academic Computer Center (CBI Building). A list of virtual student support services can be found here.
There's an App for That
Please refrain from visiting campus unless you absolutely have to. If you do have to visit for class, you will need to complete the COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire before you enter campus. Save time (and paper!) by accessing the questionnaire on your My CCP mobile app or in the MyCCP Portal before you get to campus. You will also be subject to a touchless temperature scan upon your arrival. You will not be permitted on campus if you have a fever at or above 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or answer any question on the questionnaire in the affirmative.
Keeping Things Clean
- Common areas and frequently touched surfaces are being cleaned daily.
- Hand sanitizer dispensers are provided throughout the campus.
- Sanitizing wipes will be made available to students and employees.
- Hallways and stairways are being marked as one-way to reduce face-to-face traffic.
- Common water coolers and water fountains have been closed.
A Mask Is a Must-Wear
Students must wear face masks or face coverings at all times when in the presence of others, in public settings, or while moving throughout the campus. Your mask should comply with CDC guidelines.

From the Faculty
Our faculty stepped up in an incredible way as we transitioned to virtual learning this spring. Now, we want to ensure that you know what to expect from learning online this fall. To do so, several faculty members have created their own videos about their experiences teaching online, and how they supported students throughout the entire process. You’ll be able to check out these videos on social media and online, but I want to give you a sneak peek. Please see a video created by Melissa Altman-Traub, assistant professor of Dietetics and Allied Health, and share with any students or families who may have questions about whether CCP is a good fit for them.
This situation is ever-evolving and information is changing quickly. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this time. Your health and safety are of the utmost importance, so I hope you stay well and take care.
Donald Guy Generals, Ed.D.
