KALAMAZOO, MI – Kalamazoo Valley Community College (KVCC) is working to restore services after an apparent cyberattack affected access to the college’s website, voicemail, Canvas, and email.

KVCC, with campuses in downtown Kalamazoo and Texas Township, announced on Monday that there had been a network outage and announced later that day that it had suffered a ” security incident”.

“We are working to understand and address the full extent of this situation with outside third-party experts and authorities,” the college said May 16, while working to restore all services.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the school’s website, KVCC.edu, remained inactive.

“We understand the potential for our students to have concerns about tuition payment delays, summer school enrollment and other business issues,” KVCC said Wednesday.

The college will take the necessary steps to adjust timelines affected by the situation and will continue to support faculty and instructors working with students, KVCC said.

All employees must continue to report to college as scheduled. For students, all campuses remain open for portions of in-person classes, the school said in a Facebook post.

All online portions of classes are temporarily delayed until services have been restored, the school said.

“We appreciate your patience as this investigation and our response continues. We will share additional information as it becomes available,” KVCC said.
