May 19, 2021- In the College’s ongoing effort to eliminate barriers to education, Mesalands Community College provides Chromebooks to students. Early in the pandemic, Mesalands Community College partnered with Plateau to provide students with internet access to finish the Spring Semester. Mesalands Community College continues to Lead The Way utilizing funding provided by the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF) securing the tools for student success.
Students have cited digital access as a barrier or area of uncertainty for returning to college. To promote student success and access, Mesalands Community College has committed Chromebooks to every student enrolled in any for-credit course. High School students may also be eligible if their High School does not provide one.
