Important message from NRCC regarding coronavirus (COVID-19)

Last updated on March 27, 2020 at 2:10 p.m.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BELOW IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND IS ONLY APPLICABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as decisions regarding college operations are being made following guidance provided by the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), Virginia Department of Health (VDH), the Governor’s office, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and broader community are of the utmost importance.

Withdrawal Date Extension and Pass/Fail Options

The last day for NRCC students to withdraw and receive a "W" has been extended until the last day of the semester, which is Thursday, May 14, 2020. In addition, the Virginia Community College System is developing a plan for students to receive grades of Pass/Fail for courses which are still in progress for the Spring semester. This is in direct response to equity issues affecting students such as lack of access, transportation, and connectivity. Specific information is being developed that will clearly define the Pass/Fail grading options and this page will be updated when that information is available. If you were considering withdrawing from a class, we hope these options will help provide you an alternative to continue this semester.

Continuity of Instruction

As a reminder, the following is in place until further notice:

  • Current online classes will continue as planned. Faculty will communicate any changes in assignments, due dates, testing requirements, etc.
  • Most in-person classes have been moved online via Canvas or to another remote delivery format (emails, videos, Zoom meetings, instructional packets, etc.). Faculty will directly communicate delivery format information to their students. The Department of Online Learning has compiled a list of tips and resources to help you out as you transition from in-person classes to Online/Remote classes.
  • Some performance-based, face-to-face classes will meet in-person, following current CDC guidelines. Faculty will directly communicate important information about these meetings, including meeting times, to their students. This is an updated list of these performance-based, face-to-face classes. Please reach out to faculty with any questions about your courses.
  • Please continue to check your VCCS email daily for college updates and communications from your faculty.
  • If you have not already done so, please register for the NRCC Alert at https://www.nr.edu/alert/.

Accessing Support Services, Resources, and Campus Facilities

The NRCC Library, New River Valley Mall Site, and both Testing Centers will be closed until further notice. However, Godbey 150 and Martin 242 have computers available for NRCC student use (for the time being). These locations will be monitored to ensure compliance with CDC and VDH guidelines.

In addition, Wi-Fi access is available in most of lot H and a small section of lot G on the main campus in Dublin. The red highlighted areas in this map show the coverage area.

Student success continues to be our number one priority. Though staff will be working remotely, we are committed to providing the same level of support services and resources. Each student has an assigned Student Services Advisor who will be reaching out to you to offer assistance and to ensure you know how to contact them. We have wonderful faculty at NRCC and they are ready and willing to assist you however they can. Please contact them immediately with any questions you may have.

You CAN do this and we are here to help! The following offices are being staffed remotely, but are still available during this time of remote instruction and remote support:

Please continue to check your VCCS email daily for updates and important information from your faculty. The college website also has current information. We thank each of you for your patience and understanding as we all continue to deal with the effects of COVID-19. Additionally, thank you for doing your part by adhering to social distancing guidelines.

All NRCC Events Have Been Canceled or Postponed

All scheduled events have been canceled or postponed, including NRCC's May Commencement.

We are sorry the May ceremonies had to be canceled, but hope everyone understands that necessity. We do plan to hold graduation sometime later this year and are now reviewing possibilities. Please stay tuned for more information.

Volunteer to Help

You may have heard that volunteers are needed to help out with challenges related to the current healthcare situation. The Virginia Department of Health has more information about how to get involved with the Virginia Medical Reserve Corps.

Social Distancing and Other Guidance For Everyone's Safety

First and foremost, your health and well-being are of our utmost importance. In accordance with requests from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the President of the United States, and the Governor of Virginia, the college also asks that you practice social distancing. Everyone is responsible for doing his/her part to slow the spread of COVID-19. To that end, it is critical that you avoid gathering in large crowds. Social distancing does not mean it is a holiday, a time to throw a party, or a time to go to the beach with friends. It is not life as normal; however, the sooner we all adhere to social distancing guidelines will hopefully mean a sooner return to our normal routines. More information is available from the CDC and the official Virginia State website. In addition:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) asks that everyone take steps to minimize the chance of contracting any illness, including coronavirus (COVID-19). The CDC provides these specific guidelines:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand sanitizers (greater than 60% alcohol) can be used if you aren’t able to wash your hands.
  • Don’t touch your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze with a tissue (then discarding the tissue promptly).
  • Regularly clean and disinfect objects and surfaces (ex: door handles, desk phones, cell phones, desktops, computer keyboard and mouse).
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick and put distance between yourself and other people.
