COVID-19 Update

Fall 2020 Class Schedule Update from Dr. Jennifer Lindon, HCTC President

With the new restrictions and recommendations announced by Governor Beshear this week, the majority of HCTC face-to-face classes will wrap up Friday, November 20. If students have any questions about their class schedule, they should reach out to their instructor or their appropriate academic dean. All face-to-face student classes and activities will cease as of Thanksgiving Break. All remaining exams and final exams will be conducted online. There are a few exceptions, such as very limited technical labs, clinicals, and some allied health program testing. 

Please remember to continue to follow all HCTC COVID protocol and guidelines if you do come on campus or are in clinical.  Stay home and contact your instructor or Dr. Paul Currie HCTC Healthy at Work Officer, if you begin to feel ill.

HCTC is OPEN and still serving students up through December 18 when we break for the Christmas holiday. We do have limited staffing on campuses but also have faculty and staff working remotely at home and continuing to answer phone calls and emails. Our spring semester begins January 11, and we have 12 and 8-week classes also.  We have a wide variety of courses available, including online and the HCTC Flex model.  I encourage you to contact your advisor to register for Spring classes.  You may also attend our safe DRIVE THRU REGISTRATION, November 30 and Dec. 1 from 11 AM to 3 PM at the Hazard Campus and Dec. 2 and 3 at Lees Campus in Jackson from 11 AM to 3 PM.  You get to stay in your car, and we help you obtain the classes you need to begin or continue your career pathway. 

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. No one could foresee all the changes you have endured during this pandemic, and I appreciate your commitment to your education. I wish you good health and look forward to seeing you soon.
