Hours of Operation

While planning continues for a safe return to in-person instruction for the Fall 2020 semester, we have made decisions on changes for the instructional calendar that are intended to support our overall health and safety efforts. The fall semester began August 17 and concludes on December 11.

  • All NOC students, staff, faculty, contractors, vendors, suppliers and visitors must wear a face covering (mask) on campus property.
  • Fall semester began August 17. Students have options for enrolling in sections that are either completely online courses, ITV courses (taught studio to studio for entire class connection), live online courses (taught during scheduled class times but open for students to log in via a personal device), or in-person instruction. Regardless of course structure, course content will be fully covered.  NOC has in place an online learning management system, Blackboard, that supports all students in their classes.
  • If circumstances require, all classes will be moved to a virtual learning environment to ensure student and employee safety. Courses may also adjust at any time by moving specific class days to a virtual setting if needed to maintain safety standards. The number of infections, hospitalizations and guidance from Oklahoma State Department of Health and other health professionals will be considered. Because of all the individual circumstances that must be considered, there is NOT a case number threshold that would trigger the switch.
  • All classes that meet will follow social distancing guidelines with approximately 6’ between each student and assigned seating. In classes where it may be more difficult to social distance with smaller rooms, fixed lab stations, and/or higher enrollment, instructors may rotate groups for physical attendance and virtual attendance and/or have physical lab days and virtual labs.
  • Students, employees and guests must abide by the maximum capacity posted room signs to ensure social distancing.
  • All college-related activities and events, both on-campus and off, will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis based on the current State and CDC recommendations at that time and must be approved by the appropriate Vice President and the President. Application for Campus Activities and Events
  • All non-college events, i.e., civic club meetings, reunions, weddings, camps, luncheons/banquets, on all three campuses are suspended for the Fall 2020 semester through January 11, 2021. 
*Plans for the Operation of Northern Oklahoma College in preparation for, and during the fall 2020 semester are subject to change based on current COVID-19 conditions. NOC protocols are effective until amended in writing. Announcements and updated information will be posted when they are available on this NOC Emergency webpage. Visit the National Weather Service for local watches and warnings.
