Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Are community colleges operating normally this fall?

Many classes will be taught online during the fall semester. Face-to-face classes will be held in some programs, particularly for those workforce education courses that are difficult to conduct online. In-person classes are held with extensive safety measures in place, including social distancing, mask wearing and increased santizing. See the website for your local college for more information.

In the spring of 2020, in-person classes were halted across the System, with a few exceptions for programs to train nurses, first responders and respiratory therapists, deemed necessary for North Carolina's workforce during the pandemic. See Numbered Memo CC20-021 for more information.

What should students without internet access at home do if their in-person class is shifted online?

There are a number of options available for students, and they should get in touch with their college's student services office for help with their specific situation. The Federal Communications Commission has announced the Keep Americans Connected Initiative which can make internet access more affordable for students.
