Spring Curriculum Classes start Jan. 11. Register now to be entered in prize drawings!
Student Services will be open Saturday, December 5, from 8:00AM to 1:00PM for assistance with Registration, Financial Aid & Advising Services.
Curriculum registration will be open through the start of classes. Curriculum courses, also called academic courses, earn credits toward college degrees, diplomas or certificates.
FTCC also has a robust and diverse Corporate and Continuing Education program. These courses don’t offer college credits but may apply to industry credentials, workplace certificates or a GED. Many courses offer opportunities for personal enrichment. Some programs are particularly tailored for military members and veterans. FTCC’s Spring Corporate and Continuing Education classes begin in different weeks and months. Be sure to check start dates.
More Information for Curriculum Students
During the pandemic, FTCC honed its already capable system of online instruction with excellent results. Between mid-March and May of this year, most of FTCC’s face-to-face instruction was shifted online. Despite this change, most FTCC students were able to complete their courses on time. FTCC also improved its graduation rate for spring and recorded remarkably high passing rates in many courses over the summer. FTCC is now offering a mix of face-to-face, hybrid (partly face-to-face and partly online) and fully online courses. All face-to-face classes are conducted according to strict safety protocols, including required face coverings and social distancing. Face-to-face classes have limited numbers of students to ensure social distancing.
The Pandemic and Your Safety
FTCC has operated throughout the pandemic, always adhering to strict safety protocols aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19. Current safety protocols include requirements for face coverings, social distancing, daily temperature scans, frequent cleanings of common areas and commonly touched surfaces. FTCC’s protocols are continually reviewed and have been updated numerous times to ensure they meet strict safety recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and the Cumberland County Health Department.
All face-to-face classes are conducted according to strict safety protocols, including required face coverings and social distancing. Face-to-face classes have limited numbers of students to ensure social distancing. Face coverings, social distancing and safe behaviors are also required elsewhere on campus.
The College acts immediately to protect others upon any report of a COVID-19 positive case or possible exposure and we are proud that the incidence of the virus among students, faculty and staff has been well below 1% and, since the start of our Fall Semester, no cases have been traced to an on-campus exposure. Your safety is of the utmost concern at FTCC.
