RETURN TO COLLEGE - FALL2020
To maximize safety for all new and returning students, ACC is offering four options for fall courses:
FALL CLASS FORMATS
Instruction will be on campus or at an off-site location on the days/times listed in the class schedule.
Courses or programs require students and faculty to be physically present for classes due to instructional or licensure requirements.
The majority of class instruction will be online with limited face-to-face instruction for hands-on skills and competency testing.
Students come to campus in small groups on days/times listed in class schedule or as scheduled by faculty.
Instruction will be online with lectures and virtual instruction occurring on specific days/times as listed in the course schedule.
Students have flexibility to be off campus while still experiencing live and/or recorded lectures, labs, and class interactions in a virtual setting.
Instruction will be the traditional online delivery with classes being taken at any time with virtual student/faculty interactions.
Online courses provide greatest flexibility for students who have variable schedules due to work or personal commitments.
- The revised Class Schedule will be published on or before July 16, 2020. Students that have already registered will see their course schedule automatically updated with the method of course delivery.
- Grading processes will not be altered for Fall 2020.
- All deadlines will remain the same for Fall 2020.
- If your class was moved to a online course you will not be charged the online fee.
- Continuing Education Classes will be updated with the format of instruction as soon as possible.
All Dual Enrollment courses at local high schools will be conducted as remote learning, except technical courses that require hands-on lab instruction (EMS, Pharm Tech, Welding, Auto).
