Re-opening Plan

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

Atlantic Cape’s President, Dr. Barbara Gaba, said, “The reopening of the campuses will be a measured and gradual approach to ensure the health and safety of students, faculty, and staff.  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 their online tutoring services, so it is available to students 24/7. 

The College is currently continuing with their online classes for the Summer, with some courses available for the second summer session that begins June 29 and the third session on July 13. The first classes for Fall 2020 begin August 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 (CCOG) is open to anyone who meets the state’s criteria.

Any interested student for credit or non-credit classes can visit Atlantic Cape – to register for Summer and Fall classes online.
