Central Carolina Technical College will begin spring term classes in a virtual format for the first two weeks (Jan. 11-Jan 22). This will allow students to begin coursework, establish a communication link with their instructors, receive information about on-campus class return, and become familiar with important safety information.

Some programs – primarily in industrial areas, nursing and the health sciences – will begin on-campus instruction on Jan. 11, or as determined by your instructors.

Instructors will be sending emails and posting information about class meetings in D2L (Desire2Learn). Students should regularly check email and their individual classes for information. Please do not hesitate to directly contact your instructor via email or phone with questions. Your instructor is the best link to success in your course!

CCTC and other colleges are taking these initial steps as we make the transition back to campus for more in-person instruction. We are aware that each student has their own comfort level with making the return to campus, and we want everyone to make their own best decision.

We will be monitoring the COVID-19 situation daily and adjust if necessary, but we are planning for our hybrid classes to begin some in-person classroom time starting Jan. 25 for students who favor that option.

The college will have selected computer labs open and available, including the library and its services. Classrooms have been configured to allow social distancing, often-touched surfaces are cleaned frequently during the day and masks are required by everyone on our campuses.

We appreciate your patience as we have been navigating the unusual situation of these past several months and are determined to move forward to provide the educational opportunities for all our students.
