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. Learn more about COVID-19 vaccination, testing and prevention.
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.
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.
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.
