For Students

Choose Between Online, Face to Face, Hybrid & Synchronous Online Classes

In the best interests of our students’ health, and to ensure consistent access to your classes throughout the semester, NCTC moved courses to an online format for all Summer terms. The majority of courses for the Fall semester will be offered online, or as synchronous online which includes weekly, scheduled virtual lectures with your instructor. A select number of classes which require in-person instruction will be offered on campus by practicing required safety and social distancing guidelines. NCTC faculty and staff will continue to offer the instruction and support you need to be successful as we assess when our campuses can reopen to the public, and all of our Student Services’ offices are working remotely to meet your needs.

Guidance

Where should I avoid travel? add

The CDC Information for Travel has travel notices and recommendations on postponing or canceling travel. These travel notices and are based on potential health risks involved with traveling to a certain area.

CDC still recommends that travelers avoid all nonessential travel.

  • Level 3 (Warning): CDC recommends travelers avoid all nonessential travel to destinations with level 3 travel notices because of an increased risk of getting COVID-19.
  • Level 2 (Alert): COVID-19 can be more serious in older adults and those with chronic medical conditions, if you are in these groups, consult with a healthcare provider and consider postponing travel to destinations with level 2 travel notices.
  • Level 1 (Watch): If you travel, take the following routine precautions:
    • Avoid contact with sick people.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol.
I've been to an affected area on the CDC's COVID-19 travel advisories page. What should I do now? add

If you have traveled from or through any country that is designated as a Level 1, 2 or 3 by CDC for COVID-19 within the last 14 days, follow the recommendations below for Students.

We are asking our students to be mindful of our community and self-report any family/self-travel to Level 1, 2 or 3 areas to the NCTC Recent & Planned Travel Survey.

If you do not feel well following travel to a Level 2 or Level 3 area, we ask that you please stay at home. In such an event, please contact a medical professional and follow the medical professional’s advice, including any encouragement to self-quarantine for 14 days.
