ELLISVILLE – Jones College students will start the spring semester a little later than usual to help lessen the spread of the Covid 19 virus. When students return to campus on Monday, February 1, for “traditional” classes students will notice a few changes.
“Students enrolled in a Monday/Wednesday/Friday or a Tuesday/Thursday regularly scheduled class will be required to attend class in person, or face-to-face at a minimum of once a week. Required face-to-face meetings will be assigned during the meeting pattern currently set for each class. Students will be divided into three groups, for the M/W/F classes and four groups for the T/Th classes, to meet safety standards set forth by local, state, and federal guidelines,” said Chief Academic Officer, Rick Youngblood.
A list of all class meeting periods will be released on January 13, 2021, via the Jones College website and through campus email. Click on the link for more information about the Spring 2021 Attendance Guidelines https://www.jcjc.edu/spring/
Not changing this year, is the continued wearing of face masks and health checks for everyone who enters campus. Other CDC and state guidelines, like social/physical distancing and frequent sanitizing will also be required. Anyone entering campus will be expected to visit one of the more than 12 designated Health Check Stations located throughout the campus. Prior to the health check, the JC Daily Health Check App should be filled out to prevent long lines or being tardy.
Additionally, the Mississippi Virtual Community College Courses will begin the 15-week online session on Tuesday, January 19. Dual Credit courses for high school students seeking college credit will also begin on January 19. Registration for MSVCCC online courses will be held virtually, on Thursday, January 14. A virtual registration will also be held for Spring Hybrid Courses during the Open Registration date, Friday, January 29.
