Computer labs will be available on each campus for students that need access to a computer or additional assistance.
If your TVCC course requires proctored testing, and you are not able to complete remotely, call to schedule an appointment at the campus nearest you:
Athens: 903-675-6385 or 903-675-6386
Please have your instructor and course name ready when calling. We will do our best to accommodate you during this time.
Students will receive notifications regarding details of how to access their altered/virtual courses no later than Friday, March 27 through their TVCC email accounts.
Students enrolled in courses with a significant amount of hands-on instruction (ex. welding, aesthetics, cosmetology, etc.) will meet using CDC social distancing guidelines.
TVCC is requesting that students disclose information regarding any travel by them personally or by any individuals that live in your household about travel to any destination that is considered CDC level 3. We ask for your name, phone number, dates and location to which you traveled. Please email this information to firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com.
Students are encouraged to monitor the college's social media and their email as it will be the primary source for future updates.
Self-isolation is when someone who is sick with a communicable disease (like COVID-19) voluntarily separates themselves from others to prevent transmission. This is usually done by staying home and minimizing contact with other humans.
Quarantine is when someone who is not symptomatic but has been exposed to a communicable disease (e.g. shook hands with someone who had a communicable disease) is separated to see if they become sick.
Social distancing is when an individual or an organization takes steps to limit the sort of human contact that would be conducive to the spread of a communicable disease. TVCC’s moving classes online is an example of social distancing, because it limits interactions that could spread COVID-19.

Most pandemics, like SARS and H1NI (Swine flu), have a similar life cycle. The hope is this social distancing, asking students to stay at home and not come to campus, will shorten the lifecycle of the COVID-19 pandemic by limiting the transmission of the virus.
If you have a student worker job that cannot be performed remotely, please call Human Resources. They will help you identify a potential alternative opportunity.
