MAYS LANDING – With the recent lifting of Gov. Murphy’s “Stay-at-Home” order, Atlantic Cape is preparing for students to take courses this fall. The College will offer limited in-person classes, which may include courses that require hands-on labs such as culinary, health sciences and other related courses.

“The reopening of the campuses will be a measured and gradual approach to ensure the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff,” college President Barbara Gaba said. “Our Coronavirus Task Force has developed a comprehensive reopening plan and is reviewing all cleaning and sanitizing protocols to ensure that Atlantic Cape can provide the necessary in-person services, such as Financial Aid, Admissions, and Advising, for student success.”

Atlantic Cape will provide loaner computers to students who need them, as well as a host of remote student services, including tutoring, counseling, online student club activities, career services and advising. Atlantic Cape has also increased its online tutoring services, which are available to students 24/7.

The college is currently continuing with its online classes for the summer, with some courses available the third session on July 13. The first classes for Fall 2020 semester begin Aug. 31.

Atlantic Cape has a range of scholarships available to all students, an emergency fund for students impacted by COVID-19, and the Tuition-Free Community College Opportunity Grant is open to anyone who meets the state’s criteria.
