Good morning, students.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey issued an executive order Monday afternoon, requiring all Arizona residents to “Stay Home, Stay Healthy, Stay Connected.”

In response to the governor’s order, instruction will continue at Coconino Community College, but starting March 31, 2020, at 5 p.m., all buildings will be closed to public access through April 30. No students, except special circumstances, will be able to access any of our sites throughout the county.

The college has already addressed many of the issues covered in the governor’s order. Instruction, whenever possible, has been migrated online or will be delivered with alternative methods. Social distancing and sanitizing protocols were put in place in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Coconino County Department of Health and Human Services. No COVID-19 cases among our employees or students have been reported to us, and we will immediately make notifications to you in the event that changes.

Those of you who have been using the building computer labs for access to your coursework will now have to work with your instructors to find alternative methods to do so. CCC Information Technology Services has a limited number of laptops available for students that will be distributed on a basis of need. Internet service through CCC Wi-Fi will be available from the parking lots of all three locations. Students who take advantage of CCC Wi-Fi in the parking lots will need to follow social distancing protocols. In accordance with our “Students First” guiding principle, every effort should be made to help you be successful. All CCC departments – Financial Aid, Registration, Student Services, Academic Affairs – will be available online to help you continue your educational journey during this most unusual time in our country and in the world, and if you believe you are unable to do so, we must strive to help you find an acceptable resolution.

We will continue to offer updates on our website at

My wish for you all is to take care of your families and loved ones, to be safe and to stay healthy. Onward!

Colleen A. Smith, Ph.D.
President, Coconino Community College
