GTCC’s course scheduling and social distancing plans for Fall 2020

GTCC is implementing numerous safeguards during the Fall 2020 term to help ensure that students can continue their education and achieve their educational and career goals. Please read the following information carefully to find out how GTCC is preparing for the upcoming term.

Plan for Fall 2020 semester (before the Thanksgiving holiday)

GTCC will offer instruction in a variety of formats to best serve student needs and meet the requirements for social distancing and protective practices.

  1.  In-person lecture classes will be held on campus with appropriate social distancing and protective practices. In many cases, this will include using a primary and secondary room format so that half the students are in the classroom with an instructor and the other half are viewing on a screen from another room.
  2.  Hybrid and blended classes will be offered to reduce the number of days and hours that students are required to be on campus.
  3. The college is offering more 100% online courses this fall. In addition, some course sections that are currently scheduled to meet in-person may be rescheduled to meet online in order to ensure social distancing. Please check your GTCC Titan Email regularly for the latest schedule updates.
  4. Lab classes will continue on campus with appropriate social distancing and protective practices. Note that some labs will use health screening and temperature checks when students cannot meet required learning outcomes while maintaining social distancing.
  5. Workforce Continuing Education classes will be offered on campus with appropriate social distancing and protective practices.

Plan for the Fall 2020 semester (after the Thanksgiving holiday)

  1.  All lecture instruction and final examinations will be moved 100% online.
  2. Lab classes will continue on campus with appropriate social distancing and protective practices. Note that some labs will use health screening and temperature checks when students cannot meet required learning outcomes while maintaining social distancing.
  3.  Workforce Continuing Education classes will be moved online as feasible. Any remaining in-person Workforce Continuing Education classes will follow appropriate social distancing and protective practices.

GTCC’s Current Social Distancing and Protective Practices

 The following list will be updated regularly to include the latest guidance from state and local health authorities.

  • Masks are required on campus.
  • Social distancing is required as much as practicable.
  • Social distancing is reinforced by taping off seats and areas to discourage the gathering of individuals.

  • Plexiglass guards have been installed on counters in customer service areas.
  • Handwashing is strongly encouraged.
  • Hand sanitizer stations have been increased on campus.
  • Students and employees are reminded of symptoms via a pop-up message when logging into any computer on campus and to go home if they exhibit symptoms.
  • Posters are displayed in classrooms and on entry doors to buildings reminding students and visitors to go home if they exhibit symptoms and follow established rules for masks and social distancing while on campus. These posters are highlighted to students and visitors regularly by faculty and staff.

  • A COVID-19 hot line 336-334-4822 Ext. COVID (26843) has been established.
