NORFOLK, Va. - Most of Tidewater Community College’s class schedule will remain online for the spring 2021 semester, with some classes being taught with a combination of online and in-person instruction.

Spring classes begin on January 11.

Courses that require hands-on instruction, will be taught online and supplemented with on-campus sessions.

More than 400 sections of classes, including automotive, health professions, welding, veterinary technology, culinary arts, music, visual arts, electronics technology and other programs, will have on-campus components.

“It’s been a successful fall semester for our students at TCC, who have embraced both the face-to-face instruction we offer and the remote learning option,” said Michelle Woodhouse, interim vice president for Academic Affairs and chief academic officer. “The safety of our students, faculty and staff remains our top priority, which is why we will continue to offer most classes online for the spring 2021 semester. However, we will increase our hybrid offerings, which allow students to combine traditional learning with web-based instruction.”

Everyone must wear face coverings, use hand-sanitizer and complete a health self-assessment when they enter all college buildings.

Signs will be posted throughout the campus to serve as a reminder to practice physical distancing and healthy hygiene.

TCC offers Virtual Student Support Rooms, which are equipped with computers and internet access and will link directly to TCC’s virtual resources. Students will also be able to obtain I.D. cards, drop off documentation, and access computer labs.
