APRIL 1, 2020 CAMPUS UPDATE
TCAT LIVINGSTON WILL CONTINUE ALL TRAINING ON-LINE THROUGH THE END OF THE SPRING TRIMESTER.
TCAT Livingston continues to adhere to CDC Precautions and recommended guidance from the State of Tennessee.
In response to the coronavirus outbreak and continued public health concerns, all training will remain on-line through the end of the Spring 2020 Trimester (April 24, 2020).
ALL ON-CAMPUS EVENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED THROUGH APRIL 30th.
The College will remain closed to students and to the public through April 30, 2020. Our faculty and staff will be working virtually to conduct regular college business and provide services to students. Our goal is to continue to be student-centered, even in these difficult times. Though we are socially distanced, we are here to provide the support you need to complete the trimester! Please let us know how we can help.
The campus closure will include all student computer labs. Students that are unable to complete their courses online should immediately notify their instructor or contact our Student Services Coordinator, Stacy Johnson at Stacy.Johnson@tcatlivingston.edu.
The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our top priority along with our mission of Student Success and Workforce Development. The College will continue to post updates and the status of the campus on our website and social media sites.
Every program has transitioned to D2L, which is a web-based portal that connects students to the online version of their classes. D2L is where students can locate their assignments, listen/read/watch lessons, communicate with their instructor, and upload their classwork. Contact your instructor by email immediately if you are having difficulty accessing your assignments on-line.
Instructors and staff are available by email and Desire2Learn (D2L) and everyone is encouraged to watch our social media pages, web site, and your S# email for details on resources to assist you during this time.
We appreciate everyone working together to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and communities. Stay safe!
