Summer Offerings / Fall Schedule
Summer session 1 (and the dual session) starts on Tuesday, May 26, 2020. North Carolina Central University has announced that ALL summer courses will be online courses. There will not be any on campus courses this summer. At this time, we do not have any new information about Fall coursework.
Our hope (right now) is that our Summer and Fall schedules will remain as they are currently listed. However, with that said, please be aware that circumstances are fluid and could yet change again. The University makes all decisions about which Summer and Fall courses are offered - and how they are offered. Sometimes, they make decisions at the last minute. We will do our best to advocate for our students and provide you with as much advance notice of changes as possible. Unfortunately, we can not guarantee at this time that all schedules will remain unchanged.
These changes, particularly last minute ones, are stressful. The last several months have been particularly difficult. Sometimes these circumstances require us to revisit plans that we have made previously. We hope that you will continue to exercise and demonstrate positive counselor characteristics: Good self-care, flexibility, open-mindedness, and decision-making based on information you have at the moment.
