NCC Fall Semester
For the Fall, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, NCC will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, including classes with lab components that cannot easily be replicated remotely, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community.
For the Fall session, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, Nassau Community College will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Courses that have critical components and require face-to-face instruction, such as lab components, will be instructed on-campus in a face-to-face format following appropriate health and safety guidelines and procedures to maintain the safety of the NCC community. Information on form of instruction will be located in the course descriptions upon registering.
Support areas that can continue to effectively work remotely will continue to do so until further notice. Expanded staffing will be tightly managed and coordinated to mitigate potential risks and to maintain the health and safety of the NCC community.
Outlined throughout these pages is the College’s Fall plan, developed by College’s Reinventing Task Force, which incorporates the many voices of the Campus community, including administrators, faculty, and staff. Once logged into the MyNCC Portal, you can view the full plan submitted and approved by SUNY. It is also important to note that our plan remains subject to change as new information, guidance and/or direction is received from the State of New York, SUNY and the County of Nassau.
The College has established a clear set of standards and responsibilities for all community members which are outlined below and which include requirements for the use of face coverings; expectations for physical distancing, personal hygiene and cleaning of personal spaces; and cooperation with screening via the College’s app that can be downloaded onto a cellphone or accessible through the NCC portal.
The College will clearly and recurrently communicate these standards and expectations and they will be incorporated into the Student Code of Conduct and other relevant College policies and procedures as appropriate.
Please keep in mind this global pandemic is an ever-evolving situation and as such information provided on this website is subject to change.
The NCC COVID-19 Compliance Corner is an option for making a confidential report online to help NCC employees and students identify and address compliance concerns regarding COVID-19. This includes concerns related to compliance with COVID-19 health and safety standards (e.g., compliance with social distancing, personal protective equipment, and cleaning and disinfecting standards). An employee or students may provide their name and contact information, or may chose to remain anonymous. Employees may still report their concerns through the traditional reporting channels. Creating and maintaining an environment that maintains health and safety during this unprecedented time will be a collaborative effort and we need your help. Further information to come shortly.
