Wilson Community College is monitoring ongoing Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates from local, state, and national authorities. There are currently no identified cases on our campus. As facts develop, we intend to provide accurate and timely information whenever warranted.
In an effort to assist currently enrolled students during the COVID-19 crisis the College is offering the following support services.
The College’s Food Pantry provides students with microwavable meals/ready-to-eat snack items (ramen noodles, granola bars, crackers, etc.), and some canned goods, that can supplement food resources at home. Beginning Wednesday, April 1, students can visit the Food Pantry in Building F on Wednesdays between 1:00-2:00 p.m. for walk-in pick-ups. Students who are experiencing more serious food insecurity from COVID-19 impacts may request emergency food assistance by emailing Kate Kehayes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To assist currently enrolled students who do not have a laptop or personal device to complete coursework online, the College has a limited number of laptops that can be checked out through the Library. For more information visit the Library page at https://www.wilsoncc.edu/student-services/library/.
An open computer lab in the Library is also available for currently enrolled students to complete coursework and assignments for Spring classes. Staff will be on hand to assist students as needed. For more information visit the Library page at https://www.wilsoncc.edu/student-services/library/.
WCC certainly understands that graduation ceremonies are important milestones that students work hard to reach and loved ones sacrifice to support, but unfortunately we do not foresee being able to hold Commencement and other graduation ceremonies as scheduled. The COVID-19 response has resulted in the cancellation of many significant events and the resulting feelings of frustration and disappointment are natural and understandable. Of all the traditions in higher education, there are none we value more than the main Commencement ceremony and program graduations the College holds each year. We very much want to, and plan to recognize all graduates in a meaningful way, once normal operations can resume. With the conditions surrounding COVID-19 changing every day, we are not in a position to determine exactly when that will be. Although we are unable to make definite plans at this time, we wanted to notify graduates so you can plan accordingly and focus on the ultimate goal of completing your program requirements. Our top priority is helping you achieve your educational goals while preserving the health and safety of the College family. Please continue to check your WCC email and Moodle for important updates and information.
As of right now, Summer Registration is postponed. However, please remember to check your College email and Moodle for any updates, because within a few weeks we will choose new, re-scheduled registration dates. We understand that you’re anxious to get back to a regular routine, and that you’re wondering when you can register for summer courses. As COVID-19 continues to impact our community in multiple ways, WCC is making every effort to avoid further disruption to your educational goals while we work to preserve the health of our students and employees.
In an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, most buildings and facilities on campus are closed to students and the public. Classes are ongoing and will continue primarily online for the foreseeable future. We are making every effort to avoid further disruption to your educational goals while we work to preserve the health of our students and employees as COVID-19 impacts our community. Please remember to check your College email and Moodle for any updates.
