We are continuing to monitor employee and student travel. 

What happens if classes move to remote? Will you be offering a refund on housing?

No. Highland classes will still be in session, the cafeteria will be open and students will be allowed to remain in their apartments therefore, no refund will be granted.

What if classe are cancelled?

We do not anticipate canceling any classes, rather moving face-to-face classes to a remote setting. All students will be responsible for the workload of an online setting.

Highland Community College in Highland, KS, plans to hold Fall 2021/Spring 2022 classes in person. The college will continue to take precautions to monitor the COVID-19 global pandemic and will follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Welcome to the upcoming semester,

As we welcome students back to campus it is important to maintain healthy protocols. Below is guidance for HCC:

    • Wearing a mask if you are unvaccinated

    • Students should stay in their room if they feel ill and contact ScottieHealth (

    • Hand sanitizer, masks, and sanitizing wipes are available in limited supply in the Academic Affairs office.

    • Maintaining social distancing when appropriate.

  • What will Summer/Fall classes look at HCC:

    • Classrooms are returning to regular capacity

    • Class attendance will be face-to-face unless published otherwise

    • Masks, hand sanitizer, and sanitizing wipes will still be available in the Academic Affairs, however they will not be generally placed in each classroom.
