NorQuest College shares plans for Winter 2021 Term

NorQuest College has been working on a plan that ensures the health and safety of our students and employees while continuing to provide an exceptional learner experience.

Keeping our students and employees safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is our top priority. Here’s a top level look at what’s happening for the Winter 2021 term:

  • The Winter 2021 term will be a hybrid model – mostly online instruction, with some in-person classes and labs on campus.
  • Selected student services are being re-opened for in-person support gradually, mainly on an appointment basis.
  • The college is following direction from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and Alberta Health Services (AHS) and has the following safety measures in place to enhance safety and minimize risk:
    • physical distancing and barriers between employees and students
    • personal protective equipment required for all students and employees
    • enhanced cleaning and disinfection protocols on campus
    • students and employees are required to complete a COVID-19 Return to Campus course before coming to campus as well as the AHS Self-Assessment each time they come to campus
While the college remains closed to the public for the Winter 2021 term, appointments are available for prospective students. Please visit the NorQuest COVID-19 web site for regular updates.
