Cincinnati State plans for Fall Semester 2020 announced
Cincinnati State will implement a “3-point plan” for Fall Semester, 2020, focused on safety, student success, and affordability.
Some Fall courses will continue to be offered through high-quality remote (online) learning, using WEB (asynchronous online course) or “Live Web” format.
Live Web courses meet at scheduled days and times, but all course activities are conducted via a video conferencing tool such as Blackboard Collaborate.
Selected lab and skills courses (or portions of courses) will be offered in-person, with extensive safety guidelines in place.
- The in-person activities will be related to health care and other technical fields where employers and sometimes government regulators demand that new hires possess advanced hands-on technical skills.
- All in-person lab and technical skills courses will be adjusted to ensure appropriate social distancing and other COVID-19 safety best practices developed by the CDC, state and local health authorities, and specific industries.
Cincinnati State general education course credits are transferable to numerous four-year universities, and affordable tuition makes the College an attractive option for many current four-year university students or students graduating from high school who are considering a “gap” year.
An updated Fall schedule showing the format for each course offering is expected to be available by mid-June.
The College’s Workforce Development Center in Evendale will resume operations in June. All in-person activities will include appropriate COVID-19 related safety measures, similar to those in effect at other Cincinnati State campuses.
