NW-SCC begins summer semester online

As Northwest-Shoals Community College looks to begin its summer session, classes will look a little different for students and professors as the college adjusts to meet guidelines for COVID-19.

Summer session began this week, with the first week of classes being remote. On-campus courses will begin June 1.

“I know this will be an unprecedented semester for the college, but I have seen how hard our faculty and staff have continued to work during this time,” said NWSCC President Glenda Colagross. “We will get through this together stronger than we were before, and I believe our students will be more motivated to achieve their educational and career goals.”

Colagross said the campus has taken additional precautions to ensure students and teachers are able to abide by the 6-feet distance rule. The college is also providing masks for all students and employees and additional sanitizing equipment.

NWSCC public information officer Trent Randolph said the college has been receiving instruction from the Alabama Community College System in regards to the process of returning to campus. Randolph said employees began returning to campus May 12.
