Current Operational Status

Our operational status was developed in accordance with federal/state/local guidelines.

Campus Access

  • The campus will remain closed to the general public, except for vendors and those with prior appointments scheduled.
    • Prior appointments will include prospective students interested in learning more about programs or needing to meet with the Financial Aid staff.
    • Prior appointments also include Testing Center customers.
      • Testing Center customers will be provided face masks while on campus.

Instruction

  • All programs will continue to be delivered in a hybrid format. On-ground instruction, to include skills/labs, will be offered in small groups (9 or less students + 1 instructor) per training area using a “staggered” schedule.
  • On-ground instruction will be supplemented with online/outside academic assignments at a level sufficient to fulfill each student’s enrollment status (full-time/part-time, etc).
  • All students on campus will be required to complete the same Covid-19 screening questions as employees and answer “No” to each before being allowed in the training areas.
    • Social distancing and hand washing requirements must be adhered to.
    • Students are required to wear face masks (cloth or other type) while on campus in common areas. They may provide their own face mask. Face masks and hand sanitizer will be provided to students if needed. Each building on campus will have a central stock of face masks and personal hand sanitizer. Faculty will ensure that training equipment is cleaned/sanitized between instructional sessions.
