Madera Community College also has $128,000 in emergency funds to distribute to students for the spring semester. These funds are available to students on a first-come, first-served basis. Funds can be used to cover any expense that will help students continue progress towards completion of academic goals, such as tuition, fees, food, utilities and transportation. Students do not need to pay back the funds.
Classes available include courses needed to complete an Associate’s Degree or transfer to a four-year institution, as well as options to gain technical, workforce skills. Courses range from English and math to data entry and management. Most classes will be taught online with quality instruction and student support. There will be limited face-to face options.
“At Madera Community College, our mission is to eliminate barriers for anyone who wants to earn a degree or gain an employable skill. Funding such as the emergency aid and programs like our food pantry are meant to support students in achieving their goals,” said President Angel Reyna. “We have worked hard to develop quality online courses amid COVID-19. Students should not have to put their dreams on hold.”
