Limited face-to-face classes will open upon IATF approval.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape of education, especially with the many limitations placed on the various sectors of society. With education being one of those hit the hardest, students and teachers all over the world were forced to find remote solutions so that learning and teaching can continue, even online.

Thanks to its Innovative Learning System having been in place for blended learning even before the pandemic, Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL) was able to smoothly transition to fully online learning for its students. Still, despite the convenience of learning at home, the fact remains that there are those who would like the choice to continue with face-to-face classes, at least once deemed safe by the government to resume.

With more than a year having passed since the outbreak of the pandemic, and with both the government and education institutions working to address the many issues it brought about, the day that students can once again meet with their professors and classmates in person may be fast approaching.

As the number one private school in CALABARZON, Malayan Colleges Laguna is prepared to cater to the varying needs of students with its two Flexible Learning Options for its students:

Blended Learning Option
Blended Online and On-Campus Learning

Once allowed by the government, students may opt for limited face-to-face classes on campus combined with online learning through the MCL Online portal. The Blended Learning Option is for those who would prefer to meet with their professors and classmates, especially for classes that may require hands-on use of equipment, such as for laboratory courses.

Malayan Colleges Laguna will follow the 4-10 cyclical shifting model, where students may attend on-campus classes for four (4) consecutive days before reverting to fully remote learning for ten (10) straight days.

A maximum of 20 students per class will be allowed for on-campus courses. With the enforcement of strict health and safety protocols against COVID-19, students and parents are assured of everyone’s safety on the campus.

Remote Learning Option
Fully Online Learning

Malayan Colleges Laguna understands that there are students and parents who may not be comfortable with leaving the safety of home at this time. For this, the Remote Learning Option will still be offered for students who prefer not to go campus for limited face-to-face classes. With this option, students may continue with fully online learning through the MCL Online portal.

This option requires students to have a home internet connection and learning devices such as laptops, desktop computers, or tablets to be able to participate in synchronous and asynchronous classes, as well as submit assessments and other requirements.

Fully Online Degrees are also available for busy students who need more flexibility as they pursue their college education. With the fully asynchronous classes for Fully Online Degree students, learners can study at their own pace, anywhere and anytime.
