Virtual & In Person Spring Classes at C-GCC

Written By Editor on 10/14/20 | 10/14/20

Registration is open for the Spring 2021 semester at Columbia-Greene Community College, with a full slate of online, remote, and in-person courses planned for both credit and non-credit students.
All credit programs at C-GCC – 11 in total – are open, including Allied Health and Nursing, Arts and Humanities, Automotive Technology, Business, Computer Science, Construction Technology, Criminal Justice, Education, Human and Social Services, Math and Science, and Individual Studies.
Non-credit programming includes personal and professional enrichment courses in Arts, Business, Computer Skills, Physical Fitness, Languages, and more, as well as online, self-paced continuing education courses offered through a partnership with ed2go, an internationally recognized online education provider.
The semester at C-GCC begins on Tuesday, Jan. 19, and registration will remain open until Monday, Jan. 25. Similar to the Fall 2020 semester, classes will be delivered in one of three formats: on-campus, remote (instruction via live video), or online. Prospective students are encouraged to register for classes at the earliest possible date, both to reserve space in limited classes and prevent course cancelations.
Online courses will not meet on any specific day or time but will allow students to access course materials at their discretion. Assignments will have deadlines within stated periods of time.
Remote courses will be via live webcast with instructors on the days and during the times the course would have otherwise met in person.
On-campus courses will meet in socially distanced settings, with classrooms reconfigured to allow six feet between desks and common spaces. All in attendance will be required to wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and follow the College’s social-distancing protocols.
C-GCC President Carlee Drummer, Ph.D., said the pivot to a primarily virtual learning environment at the College last spring was well received by students, and provides a base on which to build moving forward.
“A recent SUNY survey revealed that 89 percent of C-GCC students affected by the sudden switch in March from in-person to virtual learning were ‘satisfied or very satisfied with their experience,’” she said, noting that by comparison, the average satisfaction rate among students at other SUNY community colleges was 76 percent. “Our results bring into clear focus the commitment of the C-GCC faculty and staff to student success whether on- or off-campus.”
