Methodist College | Virtual Services


Virtual Services

Methodist College is committed to providing a healthy and safe campus environment for our students. We have put cleaning protocols in place and have reconfigured classroom space to accommodate social distancing.

Just as classroom instruction is being offered in a mix of face-to-face, hybrid, and online offerings, our student services have adapted as well.
