Registration for spring classes at Enterprise State Community College and the Alabama Aviation College is still open.
For Spring 2021, face-to-face instruction as well as reduced-capacity hybrid and virtual synchronous classes, which are virtual classes held at scheduled class times, will be offered on the ESCC campus. Classes will begin on Wednesday, Jan. 13.
At AAC, classes will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 19. Students will continue to follow staggered schedules and a modified block system. Classes will be held for seven hours a day Monday through Thursday during two sessions throughout the semester: a 10-week session and a five-week session.
“Here at our Enterprise campus, we are getting ready to follow a semester schedule similar to fall that will include face-to-face, hybrid and online class options,” Vice President/Dean of Instruction Danny Long said. "For our Aviation College students, they will once again follow staggered schedules and a modified block system.
“We will do everything we can to offer our students that essential support our students need to be successful this semester no matter the format of their class. That support includes services like online tutoring offered through Boll Weevil Central or technology support, where students can request a laptop through our loaner program at escc.edu/laptop for their online classes if they need one.
“The start of a new semester is always an exciting time, and we can’t wait to have our students back in the classroom, whether virtual or on-campus, when classes begin in just a few days.”
For students planning to take on-campus classes this semester, attendance and schedules will comply with the college’s COVID-19 protocols for social distancing, face coverings, and additional sanitation measures. Students will also be required to complete the college’s COVID-19 Canvas course and sign a COVID-19 waiver before coming to class. As with the Enterprise campus, AAC students will be required to follow the college’s COVID-19 protocols and complete all COVID-19 waiver forms.
“As always, we are prioritizing the safety of our employees and students this semester,” ESCC President Matt Rodgers said. “I encourage everyone to continue practicing our safety protocols and pre-screening before coming to campus. We want this to be the best semester we’ve ever had at ESCC, and if we work together in this, I know we can make that happen.”
