With the recent announcement from the Governor and the science around the new COVID variant, Randolph Community College will require a mask, face shield, or cloth face covering that covers his/her mouth and nose while inside on any of our campuses.

Exceptions are:

•Employees, students or guests do not have to wear a face covering when they are eating or drinking in a common area, such as a break room or the café.

•Faculty can teach at the front of the classroom without a face covering.

This face covering requirement will take effect Monday, August 9.

Randolph Early College High School staff and students will follow the policy of the Randolph County School System while they are in the Vocational/Technical Center building.

If a student has a documented medical exception for wearing a face covering such as a medical or behavioral condition or disability, that student should inform his/her instructor and contact a Student Services Counselor in the Office of Student Success to discuss available options (e.g., online courses, other face covering options that may be suitable, etc.).

Every effort will be made to work with the student to find appropriate ways, where possible, to accommodate his/her waiver from the mask requirement.

When vaccinations increase and infections decrease, we look forward to relaxing the face covering requirement.

Everyone’s cooperation in this effort will help keep the campus healthy and safe.

The U.S. Department of Education has distributed funds to community colleges to provide direct emergency cash grants to college students whose lives and education have been disrupted by the coronavirus outbreak. This funding is available through the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund authorized by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

These emergency grants are intended to assist students with expenses related to disruptions to their education due to the COVID-19 outbreak, including childcare, food, healthcare/medical, housing (including increased utility costs), technology (including computer or WiFi access for online classes), and other items.

Randolph Community College signed and returned the Certification and Agreement to the U.S. Department of Education and the assurance that RCC intends to use no less than 50 percent of the funds received under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students. RCC received $632,128 in funds, and we will apply for additional funds as they become available.

To identify students eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and thus eligible to receive Emergency Financial Aid Grants under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act, reports were run to identify all students enrolled in spring and summer 2020 who completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), were deemed to be Title IV eligible, and were not solely enrolled in distance education courses. Using that data, an email that contained a link to an online application was sent to all students who met the known criteria for the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF). Students who completed the online institutional application were reviewed for eligibility once the deadline passed and awarded funds, if eligible. Only students who are or could be eligible to participate in programs under Section 484 in Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA), may receive emergency financial aid grants. Students must be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen, have a valid Social Security number, be registered with the Selective Service (if male), and have a high school diploma or GED. Students who were only enrolled in online courses as of March 13 are not eligible to receive the grants. Any student who receives a grant will receive an equal share of the student aid funding.

As of September 11, the total amount of Emergency Financial Aid Grants distributed to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act to date is $382,250. The total number of students to date who have received an Emergency Financial Aid Grant to students under Section 18004(a)(1) of the CARES Act is 214 students.

RCC also applied for and received institutional funds under the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund of $632,127 which are being used to cover any costs associated with significant changes to the delivery of instruction due to the coronavirus so long as such costs do not include payment to contractor for the provision of pre-enrollment activities, including marketing and advertising, endowments, or capital outlays associated with facilities related to athletics, sectarian instruction, or religious worship. As of September 1, we have spent $196,069.99 of those funds.
