With the health and safety of our community as the driving factor, the College will continue summer and fall classes at MassBay primarily remotely or online. Each class is marked as “remote” or “online” in the Course Offerings. Note, there are a handful of “blended” courses in our automotive, biotechnology, and health sciences programs that have on-campus laboratory components and about 20% of our "general education" classes are offered in person this fall.  Please review the details of our Campus Safety Plans for students enrolled in blended and on-campus courses.
