OREGON CITY – To accommodate those impacted by recent wildfires, Clackamas Community College has canceled the first week of fall term, which was set to begin Sept. 28. The first day of fall term will now be Oct. 5, and the end date of Dec. 12 is unchanged.

"Many of the college's current and incoming students, along with CCC staff and faculty, were impacted by the wildfires. We want to provide some space for the college community to get their lives back on track before starting classes," CCC President Tim Cook said.

Other important dates for fall term include:

  • Oct. 11 – Last day to drop a class with a refund
  • Oct. 11 – Automatic withdrawal date for students who have not attended class, signed into the student portal or spoken with their instructors
  • Oct. 12 – Disbursement of financial aid begins
  • Nov. 6 – Last day to drop classes and not receive a grade
  • Nov. 6 – Last day to submit a petition for graduation
  • Dec. 4 – Last day to change grading option

Most fall and winter term classes are being offered in an online or remote format at CCC. A limited number of courses are offered on campus in either a fully or partially in-person format, following the safety measures in the college's return to campus plan. A list of those classes can be found at www.clackamas.edu/student-resources.

Clackamas Community College is closely monitoring the worldwide situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and continues to follow the guidance of the Oregon Health Authority, Clackamas County Public Health Department and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Over the next several months, as our communities stabilize from the COVID-19 pandemic, Clackamas Community College will begin to bring students, faculty, staff and visitors back onto our campuses. Until further notice, all Clackamas Community College buildings are closed to the public. All student services, such as tutoring, advising, and admissions, are available remotely.

Along with its regular scholarships, the college also offers grant funding for students for child care, textbooks and transportation, along with emergency funding.

"We are in a time like no other, but that doesn't mean our students need to put their educations on hold," Cook said. "We have the dedicated staff and the resources students need to be successful, whether we are in person or online."
