We have been closely monitoring information and obtaining additional medical guidance regarding COVID-19.  We have no known cases of the virus on campus or even in Stephens County.  However, after Gov. Kemp’s “call to action” yesterday, we want to do all we can to support State efforts to slow down the spread of this virus.

Therefore, we will move to an online format for instruction beginning Monday, March 23rd and continuing for two weeks through Friday, April 3rd.  At that point we will provide further instructions regarding whether a return to face-to-face classes is possible. 

Students, as you depart for Spring break, please make certain to take electronics, textbooks, notebooks, medicine and anything else you need to continue your classes from home.  Your professors will contact you about how to proceed in each of your courses. The residence halls will remain open and you may stay in the residence halls if you wish.  Additionally, we will continue to serve meals to all students who remain on campus during this time. All athletic events will also be cancelled during this time period.

Staff will continue to report to work as normal.  If you become sick, please stay home and work with your supervisor regarding your hours.

The College is making this decision out of an abundance of caution.  The College has been evaluating this issue and closely examining several things.  First, what must the College do to keep our TFC community and Stephens County safe.  Second, how do we make sure to provide the quality of education you expect.  We believe that by moving to the online course delivery format we can accomplish both. 

If you have questions concerning the residence halls, please contact your Resident Director.  Thank you for your patience as we work through this together.
