This semester, Nash Community College is operating with approximately 80 percent of its teaching and learning occurring off-site due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Programs that resumed on campus classes during the fall semester 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 open now through Dec. 11, the college is planning to hold more classes on campus. The following additional programs are enrolling students for in-person and hybrid classes this spring: 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.
New and returning students may register now in the Advising Center, located in the NCC Library or online at nashcc.edu/registration. Success coaches are available in the Advising Center to assist with course selection, spring registration and academic advising. Students who need assistance selecting spring classes should contact an advisor now as the application and financial aid processes can take some time. Individuals who have not attended Nash Community College in the last year, will need to submit a new application for admission to the college.
Spring semester begins Jan. 11, 2021. Classes will be offered in in-person, online, virtual and hybrid formats.
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 interact with instructors and students, collaborate with other students in a virtual space, participate in real-time group discussion and experience a sense of community with classmates and instructors.
Virtual classes require access to a computer with reliable internet access. Students interested in taking virtual courses should look for “V” in the course section number.
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. Students interested in online courses should look for “OL” in the course section number.
Hybrid courses are delivered in a combination of on-campus, online and/or virtual meetings.
NCC 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.
