LMC extends campus closures to May 11

BENTON HARBOR — Lake Michigan College is extending the date for its campuses to re-open in response to Michigan’s updated stay at home order.

Lake Michigan College campuses in Benton Harbor, Niles and South Haven first closed to the public on March 20. They were originally scheduled to re-open to the public on Tuesday, April 14. The new scheduled public opening date is Monday, May 11.

This latest measure follows a decision to extend remote learning for students through the rest of the spring semester. The college originally transitioned its in-person, face-to-face classes to be delivered remotely beginning on March 23 with a plan for students to return to campus on April 14. Now students will participate in remote learning through the duration of the semester, which ends Friday, May 1.

The college has also adjusted its summer term schedule. Originally summer classes were scheduled to begin on May 11. Now the summer term will begin on Monday, June 8 and end on Thursday, Aug. 20.

For the first time, all summer classes will be delivered through remote learning.

LMC continues to accept new applicants for the summer and fall semesters. Course registration dates for the summer and fall semesters open on Monday, April 27 for veterans and to all other students on Tuesday, April 28.

The college continues to offer most of its services.
