2020 Fall Semester Information

Dear Owens Community,

We hope this letter finds you well and excited for a return to campus for Fall 2020. As you may be aware, the Owens Community College leadership team has been diligently working over the past several weeks to develop plans for a safe return to campus. These plans have been guided first and foremost by the health and safety of our campus community.

We will offer face-to-face classes on our Toledo and Findlay area campuses while continuing online education for the majority of classes for Fall 2020. Our online offerings will include a mix of courses that allow students choices in how they would like to learn.  Our synchronous online classes will meet at a set date and time, and students will engage in real time with their instructor. Asynchronous online classes follow our traditional online format without a set meeting time.  Owens will also offer hybrid online courses that are a combination of both the face to face and online.  Face-to-face classes, as well as in person service on campus, will adopt protective measures such as required facial coverings, physical distancing, and continued deep cleaning.

All face-to-face lectures will not exceed 50% of the room’s seating capacity. Technical course work and hands-on labs that cannot be done online due to equipment, accreditation requirements, software component, etc., will also be reduced in size and will follow all CDC social distancing and hygiene guidelines.

Owens free tutoring will be delivered both online and face-to-face by appointment. Face-to-face appointments will follow CDC social distancing and hygiene guidelines.  Starting Monday, July 6, many support offices such as academic advising, admissions, Career and Community Connections, the Disability Resource Center and our TRIO Support Services will resume face-to-face appointments for those who prefer that option.  Please check individual websites for up to date service hours and support options.

We want to thank each of you for your patience and resilience and we ask, given the uncertainties related to the current pandemic and the potential for state and federal guidelines to change, that you continue to remain flexible as we work to ensure your safety, as well as your academic success. Please visit the class schedule for up to date class offerings for both Summer and Fall semesters.

These past several months have presented us all with many challenges but also with the unique opportunity to reimagine how we work and learn. Together we will emerge from this time stronger and better prepared as an institution to support each other.

Sincerely,

Denise Smith, Ph.D.
Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs

We will get through this together!

Through the entire COVID-19 pandemic, Owens has followed the recommendations of Governor DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton. During the April 2 press conference, Dr. Acton extended the Stay at Home order until Friday, May 1.

Our goal is to continue restricting employee presence on campus to only those roles where on-campus presence is required to continue college operations and service to students. We hope that by doing our part Owens can assist in flattening the curve and protecting our community.
