Frequently Asked Questions

Will any courses continue in-person during this time?

For the safety of students, faculty, and staff, the vast majority of classes will continue online if possible, or be paused if not. However, since the NC Community College System is the main source of education for much of North Carolina's workforce that will respond to this pandemic, in-person courses will continue with strict safety measures for first responders and nursing students. Please see Numbered Memo CC20-021 for more specific guidance.

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.
