NorthWest Arkansas Community College said Monday (May 10) that beginning June 14 college employees will return to their offices and to accommodate face-to-face student services, while also adhering to social distancing guidelines.
“It’s exciting to plan the return of our staff to campus to help students with their registration and plans for the fall semester. Although we feel we were able to successfully serve several students remotely, we recognize the need to be available to students face-to-face as some may not have regular access to technology, while others may need the kind of assurance and support that is best achieved by sitting down and having a conversation,” said vice president of student services Dr. Todd Kitchen.
“We are hopeful that June 14th is one more step toward returning to what we know to be normal on our college campus, which is being here and available to serve our students and community,” Kitchen added.
Beginning June 14th, students will be able to access more student services on the Bentonville campus and at the Washington County location including admissions and registration, advising, financial aid, student records, the treasurer’s office and the information commons area.
This fall, NWACC said the college will offer more face-to-face classes, in addition to its current hybrid model as well as online-only class options.
The college said it will continue to prioritize COVID-19 safety guidelines, college-wide disinfecting efforts, and encouraging vaccination, face coverings, hand washing and social distancing until further notice.
