Protect the Hive: COVID-19 Planning and Resources

Campus Guidelines and Restrictions

The College continues to follow the guidelines and restrictions set forth by the State of Michigan in the MI Safe Start Plan.

The K Campus Activity Level is Red.

Health and Safety

  • Responsible, other-centered individual decisions aligned with public health guidance are the single-best way to “Protect the Hive” and the larger community from the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In order to ensure the safest possible environment, our list of Community Safety Commitments applies equally to every member of the campus community (students, faculty and staff), every visitor and every vendor or contractor.


  • Classes for winter term will begin on January 4. All classes, regardless of modality, will be online for everyone the first two weeks of the term. In-person class components can begin the week of January 19.
  • Move-in will begin on January 15 for most residential students (residence assistants, international students and athletes have separate move-in dates, which have been communicated to them).
  • Please note that we are continuing to carefully monitor public data, guidance and directives and will remain flexible to adjust plans if conditions significantly change. Students should watch their email for regular updates.
