Coronavirus (COVID-19) Campus Updates

Updated Friday, May 1, at 1:15 pm

Due to the extended stay-at-home order that Governor Pritzker announced last week we have decided as a college to change the start date for the summer semester. The new summer semester start date will be Monday, June 1st. The main reason we have decided upon this start date is for the saftey of our students and their loved ones. We also chose this date because we truly miss seeing our students on a daily basis and coudn't stand the thought of starting the summer semester without being able to see them in person.

We will continue t monitor any new updates from the Governor regarding the stay-at-home-order and will be sure to post an update here as news comes out. We advise that our students continue to check their MC emails and this web page in order to remainn current on what is happening at the college. This will allow for a more seamless transition when the summer semester starts and we are all allowed back on campus again.

Updated Wednesday, April 1, at 1:00 pm

Our plan was to physically return to the campus operations on Wednesday, April 8th. However, on Tuesday, March 31st Governor Pritzkerex tended the "Stay at Home" order through April 30th, which is our final week of classes. Therefore, our classes will remaion online through the end of the semseter.

Please know that we miss you and we keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. The Senior Leadership Team and all college faculty and staff are communicating regularly about the next steps, your concerns and how we can better assist you during these challenging times. With that in mind we have decided to provide you with a Pass/Fail Special Grading Option for this Spring 2020 semester and you can view the details of that option here.

As always if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at

Thank you for your patience as we continue to respond to new developments.

We hope that everyone is having a healthy start to their spring break and are finding ways to enjoy your time with your loved ones while quarantining yourselves. As we continuously monitor the news about the spread of COVID-19, and by following the mandates made by the state of Illinois and the city of Chicago, we have decided to extend this period of the campus being closed and classes being held online through Tuesday, April 7. Classes will resume on campus Wednesday, April 8. We are continuing to do our part in both giving you and your families the best opportunity to stay healthy and to flatten the curve of the spread of the virus throughout the country and the world.

With the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we find ourselves in a fast-moving situation that requires focus, flexibility, and compassion. The City of Chicago has issued new guidance promoting social distance practices to residents and businesses to prevent further spread of COVID-19. Among these new precautionary measures, organizations are being encouraged to take advantage of teleworking capabilities. Toward that end, MacCormac College will operate remotely beginning Tuesday, March 17 until March 30th where classes will resume as normal. Further information will regularly be shared here so we advise everyone to check this webpage daily for any new updates or reports that shall be posted.

In the next few weeks, disruption will be the norm. We ask for your continued patience and resourcefulness as we take further steps to guard the health and safety of our community and continue our students' progress toward degree completion.
