ALPENA — Students attending Alpena Community College in the fall will have different options of how they can attend classes.

The options include the traditional, in-person learning, online courses, or a hybrid class that includes in-person and online learning, the college said in a news release.

Colleges and K-12 schools were closed by state order in mid-March in a bid to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has said, however, that the spread of the virus has slowed enough that in-class learning can resume in the fall.

College officials are taking proactive measures to protect the health of students and staff, including promoting social distancing and other measures, according to a college press release.

No matter the course format, students will need access to the internet, a computer, and a webcam.

Enrollment for the fall semester is underway, with the fall semester scheduled to begin Aug. 31. Current students can register for fall classes online through WebAdvisor.
