All Summer Semester classes will be online

April 4, 2020

Due to the uncertainty with COVID-19, Heartland Community College is transitioning to all online classes for the summer 2020 academic term. 

Students who have already registered for face-to-face summer classes will be required to re-register for the comparable class online.  

Students are directed to check their IRIS account through my.heartland.edu to see if classes have been dropped and no longer appear on their personal schedule. Classes that were originally in an online format are not affected. 

If the summer class has been dropped, students will need to re-enroll into the appropriate class in IRIS. Unfortunately some lab-based classes are not able to be offered in an online format and will remain cancelled. 

Students will be prompted to take a one-time online course awareness survey before enrolling, if they have not already completed it.  

Enrollment assistance is available through the advisement office. Students are asked to email Raab.Advisors@heartland.edu or call 309-268-8027 during regular business hours to schedule a phone appointment. 

“Transparency to students of expectations between a fully online class and an in-person course continues to be a priority,” said Dr. Rick Pearce, Provost and Vice President, Academic Affairs. “In line with past practices, we will not make the assumption for the student that an online course will work for them, especially in the shorter summer term.The online awareness survey helps to make students aware of the technology and internet requirements necessary to be successful in an online course.” 

Heartland continues to offer additional technical support for online students via 24-hour support from the Canvas Learning Management System and the Heartland Online Learning Support page.   

The first of the Summer 2020 semester academic classes begin May 18.
