Housing + Dining

CCA’s brand-new student residence and dining facility, Founders Hall and Makers Cafe, will be open during the spring semester to provide housing and food service for students who need or want to live on campus. All rooms will be single occupancy. As required by local public health orders, students must quarantine in their rooms for 14 days upon arrival. Learn more about Housing and Dining Protocols, read Residential Education’s community-building strategies, and check out the Founders Hall virtual tour for more info.

Health + Wellness

Anyone who needs to be on campus, including students living in Founders Hall, must complete a brief, online assessment of symptoms and exposure risk prior to entering either CCA campus. Download the app and find out more about the #CampusClear Daily Health Assessment. All staff, faculty, and students who are on campus at least once per week regularly (including students living in Founders Hall) are also required to participate in the surveillance COVID–19 testing program. View more details in the COVID–19 Prevention Plan or here.

Information about CCA’s student health insurance plan and waivers, counseling services, and other resources to support students’ health, safety, and well-being may be found on the Health + Wellness Portal page.

International Students

Immigration has not provided an anticipated date for the issuance of spring 2021 guidance for international students, which may be more lax, more restrictive, or stay the same as for fall 2020. CCA’s Office of International Student Affairs and Programs (ISAP) will continue to keep international students updated and will notify students by email if new guidance is issued. Visit Spring 2021 Updates for International Students for the most up-to-date information.

ISAP staff are available to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Please email ISAP at or make an appointment with an ISAP advisor for assistance.

COVID–19 Prevention Plan Compliance & Enforcement

It is expected that all CCA students, faculty, staff, and visitors comply with the requirements and recommendations in CCA’s COVID–19 Prevention Plan. Compliance is essential to maintain a safe and healthy educational institution for all and would be considered a social contract with the entire CCA community.

All members of the CCA Community are expected to be vigilant in assuring that all are complying with all Health Order requirements and the COVID–19 Prevention Plan. As such, every member of the community should feel empowered to address any non-compliance that they might see to the person they believe is non-compliant, for the health and safety of the entire Community. An initial helpful comment to the person about any lack of compliance (face covering not on or 6 foot distancing not being maintained) is requested and supported by CCA; should an initial comment meet with resistance or continued non-compliance, CCA requests and supports the incident being reported directly to a Public Safety Officer.

The Office of the Dean of Students/Student Affairs will oversee and address non-compliance concerns with students through the Student Code of Conduct.
