Fall Semester Updates
The College has developed an ongoing restart working group to monitor compliance with guidelines and make recommendations for changes to the restart plan. This group is comprised of faculty, staff and students.
We plan to offer classes in three different formats this fall.
- Face to Face
- Face to face courses will be held on one of our three campuses and will offer a traditional classroom environment with a faculty presence and seating capacity that reflects 6-foot distancing requirements.
- Online courses are delivered completely online and do not have required meeting times. All materials, assignments and tests are online.
- COVID Remote-Live
- COVID Remote Live courses will be held on the scheduled class day(s) and times through a computer or tablet using our WebEx platform.
- Explore class offerings at ucc.edu/fall
Our class offerings will be in accordance with State guidelines and may change based on directives from Governor Murphy and the Office of the Secretary of Higher Education.
Safety is the Priority
The College recognizes that the health and safety of faculty, staff, and students is a shared responsibility. Preparing employees and students for the initial return to campus is paramount and everyone must work together to ensure all precautions are observed. The College will communicate all essential guidelines that must be observed in order to help ensure safety on each of our campuses including distancing requirements.
