Note: Workshops have moved to an alternative learning model until further notice.

We are committed to the safety and security of online instruction and are constantly adapting to offer the best experience for all users. To help ensure security during Zoom Webinars, a password to enter the Zoom session will be provided to assist with these measures.

A required COVID-19 Self-Certification Health Screening Form will need to be completed if you plan to attend an in-person class or visit any CLC campus during the summer semester.
