TULSA — Tulsa Community College announced they will be resuming all in-person classes at all four main campuses, two community campuses and one Education Outreach Center for Fall 2020.

“As TCC makes plans for the Fall semester, we are faced with a new reality,” said Dr. Leigh Goodson, TCC president and CEO. “In developing our schedule, we acknowledge that the new ‘norm’ looks different than past years. Offering small high-quality classes, TCC provides you one of the most affordable tuition rates in the state as well as flexibility.”

TCC is providing a combination of delivery methods to give students options for how and where they want to take their courses.

TCC says they altered 80 percent of their class sections to provide such options for the Fall 2020 course schedules as: online, online live, blended and face-to-face classes. The changes to schedules, to reflect the four options below, will be finalized by May 18, officials say.

  • Online: Content is delivered through the internet with no scheduled class times.
  • Online Live: Online “web-conference style” courses meet at designated times and students are required to be present online, live at that time.
  • Blended: Part online, part scheduled face-to-face following physical space guidelines on campus.
  • Face-to-Face: Held at specific times following physical space guidelines on campus.

“We are committed to providing an excellent learning experience where the student can choose the preferred mode of instruction and have the opportunity for greater engagement with our talented faculty,” said Dr. Cindy Hess, senior vice president and chief academic officer. “Our faculty are squarely focused on teaching and learning in all modes and will have additional support resources and professional development for online delivery including faculty mentors.”

TCC says that all rooms are also being evaluated to determine how many students would be allowed in them, for distancing and sanitizing protocols, based on square footage.
