SCC will be online thorugh the end of semester, postpones graduation

Published on Mar 26, 2020

Somerset Community College System (SCC) is committed to maintaining the health and safety of their students, faculty and staff. That’s why the college will continue to offer online classes through the last day of instruction, which is May 2, and will use online and remote assessment during the regular final exam week of May 4 – 10.

Additionally, employees will continue to work remotely through at least April 17 in accordance with Gov. Beshear’s recommendation. Because of the fluidity of this unprecedented health event, this date could change.

SCC leadership, along with all of the KCTCS presidents of the 16 colleges, has decided to postpone spring commencement. Dates for SCC's commencement will be announced in the coming weeks.

“All of us are disappointed about postponing graduation but the reality is we need to do what is in the best interest of our students, their families, and our employees. The SCC family  is already working on a new date for graduation once we have moved through this crisis,” SCC President Carey Castle said. “Thanks to all of you for your patience and understanding!”

SCC will continue to assess when the college can fully reopen its facilities to students and the public and return to normal operations.  The college will follow the guidance from the Governor’s Office and the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) in any systemwide decision.

Students are encouraged to check their KCTCS student email and Blackboard daily for course updates from instructors. Student services will continue to be offered virtually during this time period.
