Academic Course Offerings

Laramie County Community College is committed to providing a safe educational environment for our students as we plan for the fall of 2020.

For our returning students and our incoming students, we want to assure you that we are working to provide an educational environment that will allow you to receive the quality education you expect along with helping all of our students feel safe.

 

Course Delivery Methods for Fall 2020

Online on a Schedule classes are provided through online or virtual delivery. Most previously scheduled on-campus, in-person courses will be delivered as online synchronous.

    • Online on a Schedule (Synchronous) Instruction means that classes have a set time to take place. Instructors and students are online at the same time. 

When looking in Navigate, this is how a course will look:

Residence Halls

Laramie County Community College will have two residence halls operational for the fall semester: East Hall and Foundation Hall. LCCC’s new residence hall will not be open for the fall semester but will open for students in spring 2021. To minimize risk of exposure and the spread of COVID-19, we will be reducing the number of students living in the residence halls.

  • Residence Halls will be open from August 22 (move-in day) through noon, November 23.

Students needing to remain in the Hall past November 23 will need to complete an exception request by November 5, 2020.

  • Students that are considered a household unit or are in an athletic or academic cohort with regular and close interactions may share a room and bathroom unit. These groups will include:
  • LCCC student athletes;
  • Students enrolled in the Wyoming Highway Patrol Program;
  • Siblings or direct family relatives;
  • Students that request to share a room with another current LCCC student; and
  • Students that are in a high-contact academic cohort.
  • Students that do not fall into the above categories, will be placed in single room, single bathroom unit to allow for social distancing.
  • All students residing in the Residence Halls will be tested, with the assistance of LCCC, prior to, or at the time of moving into the halls.
  • Visitors and shared spaces will be limited.
  • Students will be required to participate in training focused on social distancing, testing, screening, monitoring, potential travel restrictions, and proper hygiene.
  • Lease amendments and contracts for housing will include an indemnification clause associated with the risk of contracting COVID-19.
