BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Northeast Mississippi Community College (NEMCC) says it’s moving forward with traditional face-to-face classes for the upcoming spring semester.
College administrators are building a “back to normal,” traditional schedule of in-person classes for spring 2021, the college announced Wednesday.
Students will still have options such as Zoom, online or a hybrid delivery of instruction.
A student survey played a part in the college’s decision.
“We are proud to be a student-centered institution,” President Ricky Ford said, “and our students want to be in the classroom."
NEMCC says it’ll continue to promote COVID-19 safety.
“We understand this pandemic isn’t over, so we will proceed with extreme caution,” Ford said. “We will continue to strongly encourage our entire campus community to practice good hygiene, socially distance and wear masks, but our instructors are preparing for the majority of our students to be in their classrooms in January.”
In-person, full-term classes begin on Monday, Jan. 11, 2021.
