The Compton Community College District President/CEO announced today that the Compton College campus will be closed to the public effective March 17, 2020, through April 10, 2020, to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus both locally and as a statewide effort.

The only individuals allowed on campus will be faculty, staff, and students who are encouraged to practice social distancing and health safety measures. Individuals working on current construction projects will also be allowed on campus.

For those that use the Compton College track and field for exercise, the track and field will be closed to the public March 18, 2020, through April 10, 2020.

Compton College students are asked to continually check their Compton College email for updates on transitioning to online and alternative methods of instruction/student support services. All classes are canceled March 17, 2020, through March 20, 2020, so faculty can transition courses to an alternative instruction method, such as Canvas course delivery software or teleconferencing. The majority of courses will move to alternative methods of instruction beginning Saturday, March 21, 2020, through Friday, April 10, 2020. Options are also being explored for students who don’t have reliable access to computers or broadband. More information will be provided directly to students on Wednesday, March 18, 2020

All campus entrances will be closed, except the Artesia Boulevard entrance. Campus Police will be monitoring the Artesia Boulevard entrance to allow only those that have permission to be on campus.
