Safe Return to Campus

For the health and safety of our community, MSJC is offering mostly online services through March 11. Students will need to text or call the library to schedule an appointment with library staff to pick up library materials.

MSJC requires students, staff, and visitors to complete a COVID-19 Self Check every day they are on campus and to wear a mask while inside campus buildings. MSJC students will need to be fully vaccinated to receive in person services when campuses reopen.

For the latest updates, go to Safe Return.
