This fall semester, Nash Community College is operating with approximately 80% of its teaching and learning occurring off-site. Students are to be commended for their hard work and determination.

Some programs resumed on-campus classes this semester with safety measures in place. These programs include Automotive Systems Technology, Computer-Engineering Technology, Computer-Integrated Machining, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice Technology, Culinary Arts, Electrical Systems Technology, Electronics Engineering Technologies, Emergency Medical Sciences, Industrial Systems Technologies, Welding Technologies and health sciences programs.

As we prepare for Spring Semester 2021, with registration beginning on Monday, November 2, 2020, safety, instructional continuity, student progression and completion remain among the NCC leadership’s top priorities. The college is open, operating and enrolling students. Spring semester begins January 11, 2021. Classes will be offered in in-person, online, virtual and hybrid formats. Join us for a new year, and fresh start!

On-Campus Courses

The campus is cautiously preparing to offer more classes in-person on campus. The following additional programs are enrolling students for some in-person and hybrid classes: Advertising & Graphic Design, Broadcast & Production Technology, Early Childhood Education, Hospitality Management, and Human Services Technology. Some limited in-person and hybrid sections will also be available in Academic Success, Biology, Chemistry, Communications, Economics, English, Math, Psychology, Physics, and Sociology.

While on campus, it is important to practice the three Ws.

Wear a mask. Masks are required at all times on campus for everyone. This includes students, faculty, staff and visitors. Individuals who do not have a mask may request one from Student and Enrollment Services, the Campus Store or an NCC employee.

Wash your hands. Washing hands can help keep you safe and healthy. Prevent the spread of germs by washing your hands often. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends that individuals follow these steps during hand washing: Wet your hands with clean water and apply soap. Lather the soap on your whole hands and scrub for at least 20 seconds. Rinse your hands well, and dry them with a clean towel.

Wait six feet apart. Socially distance at least six feet from others. In some cases, classes are being split into separate rooms, and/or meeting on different days in order to reduce the number of students in one room. These methods help ensure a safe learning environment while students are on campus.

Virtual Courses

Virtual courses mirror face-to-face instruction by connecting students with instructors online, in real-time. This is the closest experience to actually being on campus. Students who enroll in virtual courses can expect to interact with instructors and students, collaboration with other students in a virtual space, real-time group discussion and an enhanced sense of community with classmates and instructors. Virtual classes require access to a computer with reliable internet access. If you are interested in taking virtual courses, look for “V” in the course section number.

Online Courses

Online courses provide an option that is ideal for students who wish to work remotely, at their own pace, without set meeting times. The flexible online format may be a great option for parents who are assisting young students with online learning, university students who do not feel comfortable returning to campus but want to earn transferable course credit, or individuals balancing work, school and other commitments. Online classes require access to a computer with reliable internet access. If you are interested in online courses, look for “OL” in the course section number.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid courses are delivered in a combination of on-campus, online and/or virtual meetings.

Student Resources

Team Nash is working diligently to provide a productive academic experience despite the current challenges. Extra measures are in place to help students navigate learning during the pandemic including increased access to support services such as academic advising, tutoring and free clinical counseling.

Make the most of helpful resources such as the Advising Center, Student Success Network, Student Government Association, library, access to computers, Wi-Fi across campus, Student Wellness Center, Success Closet, Food Pantry, Midway Café, and the entire NCC campus.
