Coastal Alabama Community College (CACC) will continue online instruction through the remainder of the spring semester.

“The Coastal Alabama Community College will always put the safety and well being for our students, faculty and staff members, and the communities we serve at the forefront of how we conduct business. The Brewton Campus will do everything it can to make this time of transition as pain free as possible,” said Brewton Campus Director Dennis Fuqua.

Fuqua encouraged all students to stay informed over the coming weeks.

“Students please stay tuned to your student email account and check the college website daily for updates and information. Be sure you are staying in regular contact with your instructors. If you do not know who to contact to have questions answered you may call me , Dennis Fuqua, at 251-809-1532,” he said.

Joining schools across the state within the Alabama Community College System, CACC will also postpone traditional commencement activities at the college.

“Every decision concerning the operations of Alabama’s community colleges is being made with the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and administrators at the forefront,” said ACCS Chancellor Jimmy H. Baker. “While we couldn’t have imagined what this semester would look like for our colleges, I am incredibly grateful for the creativity, resilience, and commitment to learning shown by our faculty, staff, and students during this difficult time.”

CACC will offer summer courses. As circumstances continue to evolve, a decision will come at a later date and with guidance from local, state and federal administration on whether these classes will be offered in-person or online. College campuses remain closed to public gatherings.

Looking towards the future, Fuqua and staff are keeping the students’ well being at the center of the decision.

“Our faculty and staff are embracing these changes in a productive and positive manner and our student population is, as always, our number one concern,” Fuqua said.
