Chattahoochee Valley Community College Announces Spring Plans

Staff Report

Friday, December 4th, 2020

Chattahoochee Valley Community College (CVCC) is gearing up for the Spring 2021 term and urging students to register now. College administrators have mapped out a plan with safety and a variety of learning styles in mind.

“We are excited to be able to offer our classes in a variety of formats to accommodate students this spring,” said Dr. Chantae Calhoun, Dean of Instruction. “Classes will be structured in traditional, hybrid, and online formats. We think it’s important, particularly for those career technical classes, that students have traditional hands-on instruction in a safe manner.”

College administrators say safety is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, and the College has measures in place to ensure that students, faculty, and staff remain safe. Those measures include continuing to require that masks be worn, adhering to social distancing whenever possible, and using newly installed scanners across campus. The scanners check for masks and conduct temperature checks as people enter campus buildings.

“We will continue to follow all safety guidelines as set by the Alabama Department of Public Health, Centers for Disease, Control and the Alabama Community College System,” said Jackie Screws, President. “We know this has been a trying time for our students, faculty, staff, and the community. CVCC is a resource to this community even in the time of a pandemic. We want to do our part, and continue to provide the highest level of instruction in a safe manner. The pandemic has brought about time for reflection. People are looking for ways to improve upon themselves, start a new career, or advance in their current careers, and we are here to help them do just that.”

Screws says the College’s commitment to student success is the reason CVCC is proud to be able to offer a special community scholarship. The offer is for former students who did not return to the College after the Spring 2020 term when COVID-19 hit. The concept is a buy-one get-one free arrangement that will allow eligible students to receive a maximum of six credit hours of tuition free. CVCC is committed to filling 100 scholarship opportunities to eligible students on a first-come-first-serve basis. The Community Scholarship is available to students who meet certain qualifications found on the College’s website. A brief scholarship form must be obtained from the Admissions office by contacting admissions@cv.edu or by visiting the website at www.cv.edu. Priority will be given to applicable students completing all eligibility requirements by December 11, 2020.
