Alternative Instruction FAQs

All emails will be sent to your @compton.edu student email address and will outline
when and how to start participating in your class remotely.
You can access your Compton College Student Email through the MyCompton portal.
Contact your division dean to see what options you have.

Depending on your instructor, youâ€™ll continue your class in the learning management system called Canvas or through Zoom Conferencing. Canvas is a self-contained system where your instructors can post course materials, assignments, and announcements.
