SUMTER, SC — Beginning Monday, July 6, visitors and students will be allowed on Central Carolina Technical College’s campus for essential services, practicing social distancing guidelines, following a mandatory face covering protocol and using a virtual waiting system called QLess.
In late May CCTC began safely bringing staff and faculty back on campus; opening the campus up to the public is the final phase in the college’s three phase approach. Preparations to ensure the safety of all on campus include new safety and directional signs, reconfiguration of desks, protective barriers in high-risk areas, personal protective equipment for employees and required safety training for CCTC employees and students.
Starting July 6, all student services will be available face-to-face on all campuses, including but not limited to testing, admissions, financial aid, dual enrollment, Central Carolina Scholars, TRIO, bookstore and registration assistance through the use of QLess. QLess is an online appointment platform that allows a user to make an appointment, be placed in a queue and receive notifications rather than physically waiting in line.
There are three ways to access QLess for the Main Campus: download the QLess app from the app store on a phone or mobile device, text “main titan” to 803-770-4761 or scan the provided QR code. QLess will be available for the Kershaw County Campus, the Lee County Site and the F.E. DuBose campus starting July 16. Until the system is available for the outreach locations, staff will coordinate appointments through the administrative staff at each location. For more information on QLess please contact Elizabeth White at 803-774-3376.
Potential and current students can still choose to meet virtually through Zoom meetings, online chat sessions via cctech.edu or the phone. Employees will continue to practice social distancing and limit the number of students in each area according to current guidelines. Operating hours for the Main Campus and the Kershaw County Campus will continue to be 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday until further notice. Hours for the Lee County Site and F.E. DuBose Campus can be found on the college’s website.
Fall 2020 registration is open now with classes scheduled to begin August 24. The delivery format of fall classes will be determined soon and announced to the public.
