In compliance with statewide directives, Wytheville Community College (WCC) will continue with the remote delivery of instruction at least through the end of the spring semester.

Governor Northam issued a statewide stay at home order on March 30, 2020, to protect the health and safety of Virginians and to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The Executive Order took effect on March 30 and will remain in place until June 10, 2020, unless amended or rescinded by a further Executive Order.

Executive Order 55 directs all institutions of higher education in Virginia to suspend in-person classes and instruction, cancel all gatherings of more than ten, and require that social distancing be maintained while operations continue facilitating remote learning and performing essential functions.

WCC began migrating programs and courses to remote instruction on March 23, and will continue to offer courses remotely. Students completing internships and clinicals have been contacted by faculty to communication program expectations during this time.

“The safety and health of our students and employees is our top priority,” said Dr. Dean Sprinkle, WCC President. “We will do everything possible to ensure safety and health at WCC, including following the executive action of the Governor of Virginia.”

Wytheville Community College is still available for students and the community. Most employees are working remotely but are still able to assist our region in reaching their career and educational goals. Assistance with applications, registration, financial aid, and advising are all available via phone, chat, and video conference.
