COVID-19 Information and Resources

We are continuously monitoring the situation concerning COVID-19 (commonly referred to as the coronavirus) and its potential impact to our campus community. We are committed to making decisions that promote the success and well-being of our campus community and growing concerns across the state. Like an increasing number of colleges and universities nationwide, Redlands Community College is taking additional important steps to provide a safe, learning experience for our students. 

CDC Resources & Vaccine Information

The CDC's website includes information on How to Protect Yourself & Others as well as a Coronavirus Self-Checker. If you have questions about scheduling a vaccination, contact the Canadian County Health Department and follow its Facebook page for updates.

Face Coverings

As a result of Gov. Stitt's executive order, we will not be requiring masks but we encourage everyone to continue wearing masks in the classroom. If students are enrolled in a lab, they will be required to wear personal protective equipment as directed by science faculty. As stated in the order, nothing in the Executive Order should be interpreted to restrict a person's right to wear a mask in a state or public building. Individuals may voluntarily continue to wear a mask. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated, but vaccinations and masks are not required. Visit the state vaccination portal to find a location and make an appointment, or visit one of the local sites listed above.

Enrollment

Advisors are available to meet with students and prospective students Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Current students may be able to enroll using the Enrollment Authorization Form.

Redlands is holding on-site classes. The administration is following CDC guidelines as well as those issued at the local and state levels to implement safety measures on campus.  

Concurrent Classes

We are enrolling high school junior and seniors in concurrent classes. Concurrent students can contact the Admissions and Advising Office or their high school advisor to discuss enrollment. To contact Admissions and Advising, call 405.422.1417 or email Admissions and Advising.

Online Class Information

Some students may be new to online classes. We have gathered some tips to help you be successful. If you have ANY trouble logging into your Blackboard course or have a technology issue while working from home, you should email the Help Desk. It is good practice to copy your instructor on the email to tech support, so your instructor is aware of the issue.

The computer lab in the Multimedia Center will be open during our new business hours, Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The lab will be configured so that there is a safe distance between work stations. If you still need assistance with computer access, please contact Admissions and Advising at 405.422.1417.
