COVID-19 response

We take seriously the health and well-being of our students and community members. We also know that part of our responsibility is to act in the best interest of all. For us, that means considering the impact on the communities our students are from, the impact on our students and employees themselves and our own campus community.

Hesston College plans to begin the new 2020-212 academic year on schedule and in-person with Opening Weekend August 14 to 16, and the first day of classes August 17. More details about Opening Weekend and the academic year will be communicated soon. (Updated June 5, 2020)
