Fall Semester Begins

HCC is excited to welcome students for Fall semester! We encourage students to check WebAdvisor frequently in case adjustments have been made to schedules due to the need to change delivery format or class times.

Haywood Community College’s Fall 2020 curriculum semester will begin on Monday, August 17, as originally scheduled. Many of our curriculum programs will be using a blended approach to instruction that will allow students to complete lecture activities in a virtual environment while offering the hands-on labs in a face to face format.  All face to face labs will utilize social distancing and enhanced cleaning methods. 

Workforce and Continuing Education courses are being offered online where possible and in person with limited enrollments for select courses. Please check with the WCE Department for an up-to-date course information list and registration information.  

Haywood Early College will follow Haywood County Public School System guidelines. Information will be sent to students by the Haywood Early College Principal. 

Face Covering Requirements

HCC requires all individuals on campus to wear a face covering at all times indoors, including classrooms, and outdoors where social distancing cannot be maintained. This is required for all employees, students, and visitors. 

This face covering requirement will be in place until further notice. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Dr. Michael Coleman, VP of Student Services mwcoleman@haywood.edu (students) or Sara Phillips, Human Resources Director sjphillips@haywood.edu (employees).

Campus Access

HCC’s campus remains open for students to seek in-person services, and our disc golf and walking trails remain open to the public. Any outside groups requesting access to the facilities will need prior approval. Spaces on campus dedicated for use by HCC for additional classrooms will be given priority.
