This will be the case for all North Orange County Community College District offices and locations. All student services will be closed.  This is an unprecedented decision, but it was done to meet the needs of our campus community. We are continuing our plans to resume instruction on Wednesday. Additional information will be sent on Monday. Please continue to watch your email, the website, and our social media for updates.

Precise methods will vary from class to class and we expect some cases in which this model does not work. Please watch your email and this page for updates.
