Hey, Pumas! It’s time to return to campus, and our faculty and staff are excited to see you in person.
Whether you are attending PVCC for the first time, or a returning student, we offer a variety of in-person, online, or hybrid options to best fit your schedule and your life.
PVCC will offer the following instructional delivery methods for the Fall 2021 semester.
In-person: Class meeting days and times will be listed in the schedule and will be held on campus, either at PVCC Main or PVCC Black Mountain.
Live Online: Classes will meet synchronously at the time listed in the class schedule on a virtual platform. This new modality was created to meet the changing needs of our community, providing the best of "in-person" instruction in an online environment (ex: Zoom, WebEx, Google Meet).
Hybrid: Part of the class will be held online without a set time to attend. The other part will occur in an in-person format on campus on the days and times listed in the class schedule.
Hybrid/Virtual: Part of the class will be held online without a set time to attend. The other part will occur at the time listed in the class schedule in a virtual format using a virtual platform.
Online: The entire class will be held online without set meeting days or times to attend.
If you will be taking classes at either the Union Hills or Black Mountain campus this Fall, consider the following:
- PVCC will not require students or employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. However, we continue to strongly encourage all students, faculty, and staff to obtain a vaccine before the Fall semester begins so that we may maintain a safe and learning community.
- Masks and/or face coverings will not be required on campus. However, any individuals who prefer to wear masks on campus are supported to do so.
- PVCC will provide daily deep disinfection of every building in use (typically conducted at night) and one separate daily deep disinfection of high touch areas (such as stair rails, door handles, etc.).
- As we adjust to being back in person, social distancing will not be enforced, but we do encourage common courtesy and respect for the personal space of others.
We will continue to keep you informed as we plan for a Fall semester that is filled with activity from students on campus, working in labs and learning environments, and gaining the in-person experience that was missed during the pandemic. Along those lines, if conditions change, we are also prepared to adjust our safety protocols as appropriate.
If we each do our part, we can keep our Puma community safe and healthy!
