Important Spring Course Information for Students

As we continue to work through the issues around COVID-19, our first priority is the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff. Our second priority is ensuring our students have the best possible opportunity, in the current environment, to complete their courses and related programs.
 
Classes will resume Monday, March 23, with remote delivery only. Please stay alert for communication from your instructor covering how your course will proceed after resuming on Monday. All faculty and staff are here to support you, as our learners, and understand this is a difficult and challenging time. Please rest assured, we are here to help you succeed and are diligently working to provide the best learning environment in the given circumstance. Following are some general expectations as we go forward.  
 
  • Courses that began the term as online will continue as such with potentially minor modifications due to the extended spring break period.
  • All other courses (face-to-face and hybrid) will be taught with remote delivery utilizing various conferencing tools and your Sakai shell. Your instructor will provide details on this process by the end of this week.
  • Courses or parts of courses which cannot be supported remotely, such as lab experiences, will have special arrangements made to ensure an appropriate lab experience. Your instructor will provide details on these by the end of this week.
  • If you are a CCP student currently enrolled in a course at NSCC or an off-site location such as Automatic Feed, you are still required to attend courses via the remote delivery methods outlined by your instructor. If you are a CCP student currently enrolled in a course at your high school, you are expected to complete the course per your home high school’s current protocols.
Again, please stay alert as you will soon, if you have not already, receive specific instructions from your instructor on how you will continue your courses beginning March 23, 2020. Please note the aforementioned course modifications will continue through the end of the term.
 
Please remember, we are here to help! For course related questions, please contact your instructor; or your advisor for any program related questions. For additional information and announcements, continue to monitor NorthwestState.edu/covid-19.

Spring Semester Updates

At Northwest State Community College, our team is meeting the needs of our learners, but in a different way, as we respond to the challenges posed by the COVID-19 virus. Our primary focus is the continued safety of all Ohioans at this time. We receive updates on a daily basis from our Governor, and from Washington, and we are following their lead in maintaining a safe working and learning environment. We encourage you to continue visiting the official CDC website for all information pertaining to the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

In these times of uncertainty, it’s beneficial to lean on family, friends and coworkers for support. For our students and employees in need of additional support, we encourage you to text NSCCHELP to 419.591.6487. NSCC provides no-charge, confidential counseling services, supported by the Center for Child & Family Advocacy in Napoleon.

In an effort to provide uninterrupted service to our students and community partners within current state and federal guidelines and recommendations, the following updates are being implemented effective today, March 17, 2020:

  • Our recommended communication methods during this time include video conferencing, email or phone. Our campus will remain open for in-person emergent situations.
  • Campus hours will now be Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
  • All students and guests must enter through the A-10 (north/Atrium) entrance, where they will be asked a few CDC-recommended symptoms and travel questions prior to admittance. Employees are permitted to access perimeter doors via their NSCC keycard.

The spring semester will continue on March 23, with all classes being provided via remote learning delivery. Students will receive communication from their instructors this week with course-specific instructions.
