Alternative Instruction FAQs

Look for emails from the College and from your instructor with information about what to do next. While the campus may be closed, classes will not stop. You will start taking your class remotely during the temporary closure.

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.

If a course cannot be taught remotely, it will be necessary to cancel the class.

Contact your division dean to see what options you have.

For a list of deans, please visit the Guided Pathway Division webpage, click here.

Depending on your instructor, you’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.
