COLUMBUS- Central Community College has announced plans for the 2020-21 academic year in consideration to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The school ended the previous year by conducting all instruction remotely, except for labs and other courses that required a hands-on approach. The fall semester is set to begin on Monday, August 17, with a return to face-to-face instruction at all CCC campuses and centers. Adjustments have been made to classrooms and labs to allow for social distancing and some instructional delivery methods have been modified to allow for more online opportunities. The college is implementing a face covering requirement in all CCC buildings, including classrooms, hallways and labs. Additionally, hand sanitizer and plexiglass shields are positioned throughout buildings. A recent student survey conducted by Central Community College indicated nearly 80 percent of students are pre registered for at least one face-to-face course.
Most respondents said they look forward to attending CCC in person this fall and support the use of face coverings, if needed.
