Bevill State to Begin Spring Semester Virtually

January 04, 2021

Due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, Bevill State Community College will begin the 2021 Spring Semester with classes in a virtual, online, or remote format. Classes will begin as scheduled on Friday, January 8, 2021. Students should log in to their Canvas account on this date for communication from their instructors with course-specific details. 

BSCC President Dr. Joel Hagood and other Bevill State administrators will continually review the COVID-19 health data for the College’s service area to determine if it is indeed safe to move forward with the plan to return traditional courses to campus-based instruction. Currently, Bevill State plans to resume on-campus instruction on January 25, 2021. 

The safety of our students, faculty, and staff is paramount to Bevill State Community College. We also want to continue to meet the educational needs of our students. We will continue to carefully monitor the situation and will be prepared to take any necessary precautions based on published guidance issued by the Alabama Department of Public Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Office of the Governor of the State of Alabama, and the Alabama Community College System Chancellor. 

Bevill State President Joel Hagood stated, “The first priority for Bevill State has to remain the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff. After reviewing the numbers for our service area, the decision was made to start the Spring Semester in a remote format. Bevill State’s instructors have continued to demonstrate their ability to maintain the high quality of education provided by the College despite the challenges of this pandemic. I know that will remain true. My hope is that on January 25, on-campus instruction will resume as planned with the necessary safety protocols. However, this is a fluid situation and the leadership of BSCC will be continually monitoring the situation. We appreciate the support and understanding of our students and the communities we serve as we are faced with making these difficult decisions.” 

At this time, all locations of Bevill State will be open during regular business hours. The following protocols are in place to protect the College community: 

  1. Frequent cleaning and disinfecting of common surfaces 
  2. Personal hygiene (handwashing, covering coughs, etc.) 
  3. Mask mandate 
  4. Social distancing 
  5. Staying home when sick or immediately exposed 
  6. Signage 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, dates, events, and locations may change. The College will update this information as needed. For the most current information on Bevill State Community College’s response to coronavirus (COVID-19), go to www.bscc.edu/coronavirus
