Frequently Asked Questions
What if I need more than 18 credit hours?
Since this is the same schedule as already in place, students may enroll in 18 or more semester hours in conformity with current academic policies. Full tuition covers between 12-18 credit hours. The cost for each hour over 18 is $650, the same as in the past.
If I already registered, will my schedule change?
No, your schedule will remain the same. Those returning students who have not registered should do so no later than May 27, 2020, because we will need to cap class size to accommodate social distancing.
Will the room rate be reduced?
The room rates per semester are:
Double: $2,049, with Knox & Kneece Halls an additional $50
Double as a Single: $2,575
All new (First-Year and Transfer) students will live one person per double room and will be charged the single room rate of $2,209 instead of the double as a single rate of $2,575.
Several returning students have already signed up for their rooms with some living in double rooms. Because these students know their roommate, their room choices will be honored, if desired, with the expectation that social distancing is observed. Returning students living in a single room or double as a single will be charged $2,209.
All students required to leave on November 20, 2020 will receive a 10% remittance first applied to any unpaid balance with any remaining money applied to Spring Semester. Graduating seniors will receive a 10% remittance applied first to any unpaid balance with any remaining money sent to the student in the form of a check.
Will the board (meal plan) rate be reduced for the Fall Semester?
Residence hall students will live on campus 91 days and at home 11 days (in addition to Thanksgiving week when there are no classes). Students required to leave campus on November 20, 2020 will receive a 10% remittance applied first to any unpaid balance with any remaining money applied to Spring Semester. Graduating seniors will receive a 10% remittance applied first to any unpaid balance with any remaining money sent to the student in the form of a check.
Will there be athletics?
Both CC and our NAIA Appalachian Athletic Conference (AAC) plan for our sports teams to have a season. A final decision on the length and type of season is expected to be finalized by the NAIA and ACC by July 1, 2020. Should the season go beyond November 20, 2020 in the Fall or start before January 11, 2021, we will make room and board arrangements similar to previous years.
I struggled with online courses, are faculty ready not only to teach online but to provide support?
Our plan for the Fall Semester has only one week of classes online. Moreover, with many final exams replaced by a paper, a final project, or a presentation, the amount of online work is minimal. Most importantly, our faculty’s devotion to excellence in teaching has resulted in faculty participating in professional development throughout the summer on ways to enhance online teaching and support remote learning.
What about lab classes?
All labs will be completed by November 20 for the Fall Semester.
