Current Operating Status


Instruction

12/7/20 UPDATE: WCC is moving as many Spring 2021 courses as possible to synchronous online delivery for the first month of the semester.
Students who have already registered for spring courses should check the college’s website for changes to individual courses. They can also contact their academic advisors or achievement coaches with questions about their schedules. In addition, the college will reach out to new students registered for the spring semester to explain the schedule changes.

11/20/20 UPDATE:  WCC further reduced the number of students on its campus after the Thanksgiving break. As many classes as possible be taught during their regular time slots (synchronously) in online platforms and will run that way through the end of the semester on December 15.

For Fall 2020, as many courses as possible are being provided online or as hybrids (a combination of in-person and online instruction). Those courses and labs that are being taught face-to-face have reduced capacity to ensure distancing between individuals. Masks are required of students and employees except when safely distanced outdoors.

Beginning Monday, Aug. 10, all who work, study, or conduct any business on the campus or in its facilities must pass through a drive-through COVID-19 screening tent. The questionnaire-and-temperature-check screenings will be required of every person, every time they enter the campus or the college’s portion of the Wayne Executive Jetport.


CARES Act Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund

The Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) was signed into law to provide financial support (economic relief) to students who were impacted by the interruption of classes due to the pandemic emergency.
