ROCKY MOUNT — Like many other colleges, Nash Community College has moved to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This fall, the college will continue delivering most instruction online and virtually, with few classes meeting on campus. Face-to-face instruction is limited to select courses in advanced manufacturing, health sciences, industrial and public safety programs.

While times are uncertain, the college says it’s uniquely positioned to support students who are beginning or continuing their education. Extra measures are in place to help students navigate the challenges of learning during the pandemic, including increased accessibility to support services such as academic advising, tutoring and free clinical counseling.

New and returning students may register now for fall semester classes online or through an academic adviser. The semester begins Aug. 17.

University and four-year college students who may not feel comfortable returning to their campus in the fall, but wish to continue their studies, are encouraged to register for NCC’s online transfer classes.

Online courses are ideal for students who wish to work remotely, at their own pace, without regular virtual class meetings. Virtual courses mirror face-to-face instruction by connecting students with teachers online in real-time. Virtual classes provide the closest experience to actually being on campus.

Students who enroll in virtual courses can expect to have interaction with instructors and students, immediate feedback on questions, collaboration with other students in a virtual space, real-time group discussion and an enhanced sense of community with classmates and instructors.

Both virtual and online classes require access to a computer with reliable internet access. However, on-campus computer labs will be open in the fall with social distancing and safety practices in place.

The advising center is available to assist new and returning students with fall registration and academic advising. To schedule an appointment with an academic adviser, visit www.nashcc.edu/advising. Advising is available on campus from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and virtual advising is available from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Fridays.
