CORONAVIRUS UPDATE 3/13/20: A message from SCTC President, Dr. Alvetta Thomas

Coronavirus update

In light of the current health issues and concerns resulting from the Coronavirus (COVID-19), Southern Crescent Technical College has made the decision to suspend all classes (including online) and activities for the week of March 16, 2020 with the exception of allied health clinical rotations which will continue as scheduled.  Students should contact their instructor regarding any concerns with clinicals.

All campus locations will be closed to students and guests during this time.  It is our goal to provide our customers with the highest level of service, therefore the College will maintain customer service hours via phone and email.

While a variety of factors influenced this decision, be assured that the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff is always our primary concern.  This remains a rapidly evolving situation and the emergency management team is meeting daily and will continue to develop answers, adjust plans as necessary, and communicate frequently.

At this time, in an abundance of caution for the safety and well-being of our campus community, Southern Crescent Technical College has elected to postpone the following events to a later date:

  • March 16, 2020 - Prepare Don’t Panic Workshop
