IMPORTANT UPDATE: All Maricopa Community College’s Classes to Resume March 29

Dear Students,

As you know, the Maricopa County Community College District is experiencing a network outage affecting information technology systems that connect to MyInfo, Canvas, RioLearn, Maricopa email, EdReady, Google Tools and the Student Information System.

Out of an abundance of caution, we will need to continue to keep our computing systems offline as our information technology experts and key partners continue to work to identify and resolve the issue.

For that reason, we will resume class instruction for all modalities on March 29, 2021 (by individual exception some clinicals will resume as scheduled). We will also be extending the Spring semester one week to May 22, 2021. Faculty will work with college academic leadership on implementing this extension.

We understand this situation is frustrating and has impacted many of our students’ ability to complete assignments, review lectures and study for exams. We ask that faculty work with students on a course-by-course basis to ensure the technology disruptions do not negatively impact a student’s grade. Faculty will be flexible regarding these concerns, and any missed assignments or exams will be rescheduled.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding during this time.

Please continue to visit our website for timely updates:


Dr. Shari Olson,
South Mountain Community College
