Richland Community College Working Through Network Disruption

On February 17, 2024, Richland Community College experienced a network security incident that disrupted its systems. 


Upon learning of this issue, the college's IT security team immediately initiated comprehensive security measures to assess the interruption. As part of this investigation, the Decatur-based school is working closely with external cybersecurity professionals to restore normal operations as quickly as possible.


This incident required Richland to shut down parts of its network as they work to remediate the issue. As a result, some of its IT assets may not be fully available. 


In-person classes continue as normal, and students can access online courses through Canvas by going to this website: richland.instructure.com. Network servers, phones, some department emails, and the college website (www.richland.edu) are currently inoperable until the servers can safely go back online. Student and faculty/staff emails are still available.


All of Richland’s faculty and staff are working diligently to support students - ensuring it can continue to provide quality education and support services.
