Fall semester starts Aug. 23. To the faculty, staff and students coming back to campus, we’re ready for you. To those that have been working through the pandemic to keep our campuses safe spaces for our communities, we thank you.

Course Structure and Student Services

Course Delivery

Below are the formats classes may be offered for fall semester 2021:

  • Seated on campus: class will be on campus full-time.
  • Hyflex or blendflex: classes offer flexibility between online and face-to-face participation. May use asynchronous or synchronous online format.
  • Hybrid or blended: class might have both in-person and online parts.
  • Mostly online: class is nearly all online, but may have up to two required on campus activities or meetings.
  • Completely online synchronous: the class is online, and you don't have to come to campus, but there are still class meetings (online) you'll need to attend each week.
  • Completely online asynchronous: the class will be taught online, and there are no class meetings. Get your work done each week on your own time.

Student Service Options 

On-Campus Safety

Beginning on Sept. 8, all employees will be required to show proof for full vaccination against COVID-19 or be tested at least weekly. COVID-19 vaccines are not currently required for students; however, students are strongly encouraged to complete a COVID-19 vaccination series as soon as possible to protect the health of individuals and the campus community.

Masks are required for all individuals who are indoors in campus buildings. Accommodations may be available for those with conditions impacted by wearing a traditional mask/face covering. To request accommodation to the mask/face covering policy visit Mask/Face Covering Accommodations.

Those coming to campus should familiarize themselves with our new procedures which include, self-monitoring, screening, cleaning and sanitizing, masking and social distancing practices.

To further support safety and hygiene practices, hand sanitizer stations and disinfectant tools will be readily available on campus.

Building access will be limited and available only through designated doors during designated hours. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have updated distancing guidelines to 3ft physical distancing for fall semester 2021. We are currently reviewing our room capacity and how this will impact our ability to offer classes on campus.

Classrooms will be scheduled and equipped to allow for staggered entry and exit on campus, and to meet current guidance on gathering size and social distancing.

Technology Access

We’re committed to providing students access to the technology needed to succeed.

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is here to support students with the equipment, software and internet access needed for successful learning.

Students in need of technology to continue their education should complete a ARCC/ATC Student Loaner Request. Once completed someone from ARCC/ATC OIT department will connect to help determine what equipment will best fit your needs.

Resources for Support

We understand this moment is uniquely challenging.

Managing closures, postponements and rules regarding our public health can be stressful. Navigating changing employment or benefit status, food insecurity, childcare fluctuations and dozens of other challenges can make it difficult to focus on academics.
