All NVC courses will be held remotely during the fall 2020 semester.

Not without an appointment and for specific purposes, such as an appointment with a Student Success employee.

Student Success will continue serving our students through predominantly remote operations.  The plan includes offering limited services, on campus by appointment only, on Mondays and Thursday between the hours of 8 am Р5pm. The Student Success operations plan will be shared as the plan is finalized.

If I need access to campus to obtain supplies or materials to continue remote operations during the fall 2020 semester, what is the process?

The NVC Return Home Task Force is evaluating a process to assign specific limited timeframes for employees to access NVC facilities to obtain supplies or materials. The plans and dates are not finalized because the task force continues to assess the COVID-19 San Antonio Progress and Warning Indicators to evaluate the risk and appropriate procedures associated with bringing employees to campus. Considerations include and are not limited to the following.

  • Scheduling considering building and room occupancy levels and social distancing standards
  • PPE availability
