BCCC Resumes In-Person Classes for Fall 2021 Semester

Press Release:

In-person classes will resume for all programs in the Fall 2021 semester. The college will adjust its mask and distancing policies based on CDC guidelines.

    WASHINGTON, N.C     Beaufort County Community College will resume in-person classes during its Fall 2021 semester. Classes will begin on August 16 and run for 16-weeks, as previously scheduled. Registration is currently open for both the Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 semesters. The college will adjust its mask and social distancing policies during the summer in response to public health guidelines.

    BCCC administrators decided to resume in-person classes to accommodate students who perform better academically in a classroom setting. Since the Spring 2020 semester, the college ran most courses exclusively online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some career and technical skills-based classes such as nursing, automotive systems technology and basic law enforcement training have held in-person classes following the college's existing mask and physical distancing policies.

    The majority of Summer 2021 classes, beginning May 18, are taking place online, as they have during previous semesters.

    Registration is currently underway for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021. Students are welcome to come to campus to meet with admissions and financial aid staff, though they are required to wear masks inside of buildings. The college will open its advising center, initially online, on May 17 to help students register for classes.

    In August, the college may still require students and employees to wear masks inside of campus buildings based on Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations at that time.

    Beaufort will continue to offer many online classes this fall, and is proud of its many excellent, certified online instructors. Beaufort has won more awards through Blackboard's Exemplary Course Program than any other college in Eastern North Carolina. Even during the pandemic, BCCC has continued build out its broadcast and video capabilities in Beaufort, Hyde, Tyrrell and Washington Counties because remote learning is often the best option for students with long commutes and schedule conflicts.

    The college serves many students who excel in a physical classroom environment. "The move back to in-person instruction is in response to the needs of many of our students who learn best in this modality," said Dr. David Loope, president of the College. Whether online or in-person, Beaufort will continue to balance its responsibility to public health with its responsibility to student academic success.
