Statement of Status

Remote learning and employee remote working environment will remain in effect until further notice. As we work with state and local officials on proper protocols to re-open while maintaining the safety and health of our employees.

Activities and Events

Due to the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Wayne County Community College District’s 2020 Commencement Ceremony has been cancelled.

We know this is disappointing for graduating students. Commencement is a wonderful time when our entire campus community and your families celebrate your achievements. It is one of the most treasured moments of each academic year, but we feel this decision is the best way to help our entire college community stay healthy and safe.

You will still have a chance to cross the stage at a future commencement. All students who earned their degree in Summer 2019, Fall 2019, or Spring 2020 will be invited to participate in the next college commencement. These graduating students will receive a direct communication from the college with more information.  WCCCD will be processing graduation applications as normal after the semester has concluded, and students who applied for graduation and met their program requirements will receive their diploma via U.S. mail in late summer.  Please continue to monitor your WCCCD email and the college’s website for updates.

What You Can Do to Stay Healthy

The most effective way to minimize risk and prevent the spread of Coronavirus is to follow the tried and true rules of proper hygiene.

  • Stay home from work, school or social settings if you have flu-like symptoms, especially if you have a fever.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and frequently. Use warm water and work up a robust lather of soap, rub and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
  • If you’re out and don’t have access to a sink, use an alcohol-based sanitizer (60%, or greater alcohol content).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth - especially important after touching common surfaces - until you can wash your hands.
  • If you feel a sneeze or cough building, quickly move away from people and sneeze or cough into a tissue, your shirt or elbow. Immediately throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Avoid close contact, such as shaking hands, kissing, and sharing cups or eating utensils with ill people
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces in shared spaces using disinfectants effective on coronaviruses. These include isopropyl alcohol or ethyl alcohol (60%+), dilute bleach (follow manufacturer recommendations for concentration for disinfecting), or dilute hydrogen peroxide, amongst other things.
