Fall Semester 2021

Fall semester starts Aug. 23. To the faculty, staff and students coming back to campus, we’re ready for you. To those that have been working through the pandemic to keep campus a safe space for our campus community, we thank you.

 

COURSE STRUCTURE AND STUDENT SERVICES

We’re returning to fall semester with a continued focus on delivering hands-on, in-person training at our Anoka campus. We’re also pleased to be offering a number of online, part-time and evening options to fit the busy lives of our students.

We’re delivering high-quality courses and student-first services. Classes will continue to be offered with in-person labs, some online and hybrid delivery methods. Learn more about course delivery methods.

Student Services 

Many services are now available in-person, with some making walk-in hours available. Others can be accessed over the phone or via virtual meeting. A complete list of contacts and additional details can be found on our website.  

ON-CAMPUS SAFETY 

Beginning on Sept. 8, all employees will be required to show proof for full vaccination against COVID-19 or be tested at least weekly. COVID-19 vaccines are not currently required for students; however, students are strongly encouraged to complete a COVID-19 vaccination series as soon as possible to protect the health of individuals and the campus community.

In response to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Minnesota Department of Health, masks are required for all individuals who are indoors in campus buildings. Accommodations may be available for those with conditions impacted by wearing a traditional mask/face covering. To request accommodation to the mask/face covering policy, visit the Office of Accessibility page.

Those coming to campus should familiarize themselves with our new procedures which include, self-monitoring, screening, cleaning and sanitizing and social distancing practices. 

To further support safety and hygiene practices, hand sanitizer stations and disinfectant tools will be available in classrooms. 

Building access will be limited and available only through designated doors during designated hours. Visitors are encouraged to practice social distancing, maintaining a minimum distance of six feet from others.

TECHNOLOGY ACCESS 

We’re committed to providing students access to the technology needed to succeed.

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is here to support students with the equipment, software and internet access needed for successful learning. 

Students in need of technology to continue their education should complete a ARCC/ATC Student Loaner Request. Once completed someone from ARCC/ATC OIT department will connect to help determine what equipment will best fit your needs.

RESOURCES FOR SUPPORT 

We understand this moment is uniquely challenging. 

Managing closures, postponements and rules regarding our public health can be stressful. Navigating changing employment or benefit status, food insecurity, childcare fluctuations and dozens of other challenges can make it difficult to focus on academics.

To assist our navigating these challenges, we have assembled information about some of the resources available.
