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
    • 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.

Coronavirus Health Information

  • Symptoms

    The following symptoms may appear 2-14 days after exposure:

    • Fever
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath
  • Prevention Methods
    There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is
    to
    avoid being exposed to this virus. Our entire college community is encouraged to practice preventative actions
    to
    help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases:

    • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Stay home when you are sick.
    • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or
      wipe.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the
      bathroom;
      before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
    • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60%
      alcohol.
      Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

    If you do not feel well, stay home except to get medical care. Call your doctor before going to their office,
    but be
    sure to get care if you feel worse or think it’s an emergency. Avoid public transportation.
