In order to remain open for business and in alignment with a recent announcement from Virginia’s Community College Chancellor Dr. Glenn DuBois, Paul D. Camp Community College will offer most of its classes virtually during Spring 2021 semester.
“This will look much like the current semester,” said Vice President of Academic and Student Development Dr. Tara Atkins-Brady. “The class schedule will include asynchronous online classes, as well as synchronous hybrid classes with virtual meetings on regularly scheduled days and times.”
“Camp is conducting classes that require hands-on, in-person components, such as nursing, emergency medical services and welding, as safely as possible with the required social distancing established, and even more in some cases, and wearing masks,” said Camp President Dr. Dan Lufkin. “Everyone who comes into the college signs in so that we know who is in the building, including faculty, staff and students.”
All student services and resources will continue to be accessible to students remotely, including admissions and financial aid assistance, advising, tutoring, success coaching, career coaching, library services, bookstore, technology services, and other student support services and resources. Some services will be available by appointment on campus.
In addition, Wi-Fi has been upgraded or established in the parking lots of all three Camp locations for those who need it. And while faculty and staff are welcome to return to the building, they will still need to work with their supervisor and the Office of Public Safety prior to their visit.
“This is the safest way for us to offer our students a continuous course of study during these challenging times,” said Lufkin. “We will continue to follow guidance from our public health agencies.”
Many late fall courses are still open for enrollment, while open registration for spring starts October 26. For more information, call 757-569-6700 or visit www.pdc.edu.
