BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - In order to do its part to stem the spread of coronavirus, Northeast Mississippi Community College administrators decided Monday to restrict instruction to online delivery exclusively for the remainder of the 2020 spring semester.
Additionally, commencement ceremonies scheduled for May are postponed until a later date to be determined.
According to Northeast President Dr. Ricky Ford, the health and welfare of the entire campus community are his administration’s top priority during these difficult and uncertain times.
“We have to be certain we’re doing everything we need to do as an institution to keep our students and employees healthy and safe during this time,” Ford said. “We simply don’t know when this will end, so we cannot be too cautious. We’re determined to make this transition as smooth as possible for our students.”
Currently, a process is being discussed by which students who were living on campus may access their dorm rooms to collect their belongings. Also, prorated refunds for housing and meal tickets are being scheduled. College officials plan to release more specific information in April.
Students should continue to refer to Canvas, their school email account and/or nemcc.edu for additional information.
Northeast campuses in Booneville, Corinth and New Albany are closed to the public and non-essential personnel.
