Pandemic Preparedness Plan Status: Level 2
All campuses of Roane State Community College are closed through at least April 30 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Classes have resumed in an online format wherever possible and will continue online for the rest of the spring semester. Commencement is postponed. The latest information and resources can be found below.
On March 23, Roane State closed all campuses following an extended spring break and migrated most classes to an online format in response to the coronavirus pandemic. In order to protect our students, faculty, staff and the community, campuses will remain closed through at least April 30, possibly longer. Only a small number of essential staff are currently being permitted on campuses to complete critical tasks.
Classes that transitioned fully online will continue in an online format for the rest of the spring semester, which may be extended if needed. For any courses that cannot be completed online, students will be receiving updated information from their instructors explaining how to proceed.
The extremely difficult decision to postpone spring commencement was also made, in accordance with health recommendations to avoid public gatherings over the next several weeks. We know how important it is to recognize the many wonderful achievements of our students so alternative arrangements will be made for commencement. Details will be finalized and announced at a later date.

Any member of the Roane State community can email firstname.lastname@example.org if they have an immediate need during the coronavirus pandemic. Areas of need include, but are not limited to, food, transportation, childcare, and internet/computer access. While Roane State may not be able to assist directly with every request, we will do our best to connect students, staff, faculty and their families with local resources.
The health and safety of our campus communities and the broader communities we serve are the top priority as we make these decisions. While there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 on any of our campuses right now, we hope taking these steps will help prevent that from occurring.
We will continue to pass along additional information over the coming days and weeks regarding COVID-19 and our response, so please check your Roane State email regularly and monitor this webpage.
