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
