If you are registered this fall for a course with an onsite component, you can expect the Edison State locations to look different than you remember. In addition to the physical changes, you will also be expected to follow specific guidelines established by the CDC, Ohio Department of Health, local health departments and the College. Please review these guidelines and keep them in mind as you prepare for the beginning of the 2020 Fall semester.

    • Clean personal space(s) used in classrooms (cleaning supplies provided)

The following is a summary of information and resources that you may need.

    Understanding your Fall 2020 schedule—
    How, when and where your classes will be held

    • ALL Fall courses that DO NOT have a hands-on learning component will be conducted fully via DISTANCE-LEARNING or ONLINE with the exception of courses at our regional locations (Eaton, Greenville and Troy) which will be conducted as HYBRID-LEARNING sections, with both in-person, on-campus sessions and work that will be completed via distance-learning or online. 
    • Fall courses WITH a required hands-on learning component will be conducted as HYBRID-LEARNING classes with some amount of DISTANCE-LEARNING or ONLINE utilized while having up to 75% of instruction delivered in-person in a small-group, social-distancing format at an Edison State location. 
    • Fall courses designated or referred to as SYNCHRONOUS-LEARNING sessions are ONLINE sections, whereby students are required to virtually attend the class during the meeting times indicated in WebAdvisor or MyESCC.
