Fox Valley Technical College plans to expand in-person classes this fall

Fox Valley Technical College has announced its plans to continue and expand in-person classes at all campuses and regional centers for the fall 2021 semester.

While students in almost 60 percent of FVTC’s current programs are already receiving in-person, hands-on training, FVTC will make these adjustments moving forward:

• A full set of programs, classes, labs and support services will continue—or return—to an in-person and on-campus environment. Hands-on learning will always be the number-one priority while continuing to take all necessary precautions during the pandemic.

• Not only will FVTC continue to offer online learning and support services, they also plan to expand online offerings so students have the flexibility to learn around their own schedule.

• They will resume small group, on-campus tours starting in March. They also will continue to offer a comprehensive list of virtual program informational sessions. Those interested in these offerings can sign up on the FVTC visit page.

• Faculty and student services staff will continue to be accessible to help students explore programs, navigate the admissions process, choose classes, and explore financial aid options.

• Campus activities, such as clubs and organizations, will begin planning fall events and activities across campuses and centers.

“Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been successfully and safely responding to the technical education needs of our region,” said Dr. Chris Matheny, executive vice president and chief academic officer. “We’re seeing an increase in demand across our communities for safe, hands-on, expert-led courses, seminars, and customized training. As we look to the fall semester, we are working with our public health partners, employers, students, faculty, and staff to deliver Knowledge That Works.”
