OCCC To Conduct Spring 2021 Classes Online

College continues to minimize risk of COVID-19 spread

OCCC To Conduct Spring 2021 Classes Online

Oklahoma City Community College (OCCC) announced last Friday that classes will be conducted mostly online for Spring 2021, continuing the safety protocols it instituted in March 2020. The decision was made after a “Pandemic Planning for Spring 2021” survey was distributed to all students, faculty and staff. More than 3,000 respondents indicated an overwhelming preference for online-only instruction, given the continued rise in COVID-19 cases in Oklahoma and across the country. 

“These are not simple or easy decisions,” said OCCC Provost Dr. Jeremy Thomas. “We would all love to be together in person again, but it’s just not safe to do so yet. Our students deserve the best education possible, and we believe we can deliver a great online learning experience.”

OCCC experienced a year-over-year increase in enrollment for both summer and fall, despite the move to online learning, and has received largely positive feedback from students, faculty and staff for the online experience. Certain classes which absolutely require in-person instruction, labs or other training, will still be conducted on campus when required, with proper social distancing and masks.

“The most important thing I want our students to know is that we’re here for them,” said Dr. Thomas. “Though classes are being conducted online, campus will remain open to allow students access to a hot meal or coffee, the library, tutors, free WiFi, food pantry, a safe place to study, or advisements.”

Oklahoma City Community College enrolls around 17,000 students annually. Thousands more are served in non-credit classes and programs. The college has more than 60 fields of study and offers associate degrees, certifications and leadership opportunities.
