Covid-19—it is on everyone’s mind as the pandemic continues to sweep the nation. One may wonder how it will affect going to college. It is a valid concern in the age of uncertainty.
We are taking all necessary safety precautions when it comes to Covid-19 at WVJC. Students, staff, and faculty all wear masks indoors. Everyone gets their temperature taken with a forehead thermometer upon entering the campus. Employees and students alike sign-in on a form stating that the person has not recently traveled, does not have any symptoms, or has been around anyone with known symptoms. Regular hand washing is highly encouraged. Hand sanitizer stations are also available for use. Our cleaning crew is working tirelessly to make sure our learning environments are sanitized and squeaky clean. When going to college, one should only have to worry about focusing on their education, and we are taking all precautions so that our students at WVJC can do just that.
At WVJC, we continue to provide our online learning platform for students who want to further their education. For our on-campus programs, we have developed a synchronous learning platform that has all of the advantages of taking classes on-campus, but do so from the safety of the students’ homes. This means that students have their classes at the same scheduled times with the only difference of having the live lecture at home. As soon as it is safe to do so, we will have our on-campus programs back on campus. It is important to us at WVJC that the safety of our students in their schooling remains a top priority.
In this age of uncertainty, we have made the necessary changes to adapt so our students can continue with their education. Do not let Covid-19 derail your plans to attend college. Your future and financial security are still of the utmost importance to us at WVJC. We look forward to having you as a student come Fall in the Covid-19 era.
Living in a digital world has changed the way that we look at so many things, education included. During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic these past few months, so many people experienced layoffs, furloughs, and company closures. While our campuses experienced temporary closures, like so many other schools across the country, WVJC Online continued to prepare students for a career. WVJC Online offers convenience and flexibility for our online associate degree programs to make earning your degree more attainable. The majority of WVJC Online students are nontraditional – they already have families, kids, jobs, etc., and need a flexible schedule. This is a great advantage that our online students have over traditional college students. If something similar to the recent pandemic were to occur again, our students will be able to continue on their degree path without many changes to their daily routine.
WVJC Online has a team of admissions advisors committed to helping you achieve your goals. Once a potential student has taken the first step of deciding it is time to change their life, our advisors go to work for you. The most important part of the admissions process is the virtual college tour, which potential students can complete from the comfort of their own home in front of their computers. The purpose of the virtual college tour is to determine how WVJC may be able to assist you to take the next step toward meeting your career goals. Virtual college tours include information that all potential students are looking for – information about their fast-track program of interest, certifications that they may be eligible to sit for, how our online portal works, our hands-on personalized financial aid process, and our dedicated career management team.
WVJC Online enrolls future graduates who are motivated to start or further their career in their chosen field. If you think this describes you, request information today and an admissions advisor will be in touch shortly!
