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.

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.

To learn about using Canvas for classes, watch the Student Orientation Tour. You can also watch “how-to” Video Guides to learn how to use specific features and tools Canvas.

During this time, we have modified our student services to be able to support you online/remotely. Please visit the Student Services webpage to learn how to access their services remotely.

Canvas is available via the MyCompton portal. Log in and click on the CANVAS tile.
Instructors have been advised to schedule their class sessions at their regularly scheduled times to avoid conflicts between classes.
Compton College will receive the 725 laptop computers that will be available for loan to Compton College students this semester. Our goal is to distribute the first set of 200 laptops on Monday, March 30, 2020, to eligible students. For more information click here.
