This week, Dr. Cheryl Marshall, the chancellor for North Orange County Community College District (NOCCCD), announced that Fullerton College along with Cypress College and North Orange Continuing Education (NOCE) will offer Spring 2021 Semester courses primarily online.
“This week marks six months since we initially closed the campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and unfortunately, we are not out of the woods yet. While parts of our economy are beginning to reopen in Orange County, we are seeing colleges and universities across the country become hot spots for COVID-19,” said President Greg Schulz. “At Fullerton College and throughout the NOCCCD, we believe that our efforts to maintain social distancing will help minimize the risk to our college community.”
Fullerton College will offer a limited amount of in-person classes in the spring, as it has this fall, with strict safety measures in place. The class schedule will be available online in a searchable format after October 2, and a pdf version of the schedule will be available by October 20. Spring registration will be held in November.
“Because our schedules have to be produced so far ahead of each semester, the decision about Spring 2021 classes must be made now,” said Dr. Marshall. “In this COVID-19 environment, safety considerations for our students, faculty, and staff are our main priority, and they do not allow us to transition to primarily in-person instruction at this time. When the science and technology allows, we will begin to open our campuses more.”
During the spring, Fullerton College will continue to offer comprehensive student support services remotely including counseling, tutoring, transfer support and many student life opportunities.
