Coronavirus Response: Monday, May 18, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all campuses are closed except for limited in-person labs. Incoming mail and product deliveries should follow normal business operations.

All Wake Tech courses continue to operate online. The only exceptions are limited in-person labs for health sciences and skilled trades – programs that support careers deemed essential by Governor Cooper during the stay-at-home order.

Specific decisions regarding the reopening of our campuses await further guidance from the governor, public health officials, and the North Carolina Community College System Office. In the meantime, we are being proactive in planning and preparing for various contingencies for fall. The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff are our highest priority and we anticipate a phased-in approach to reopening our campuses over the next several months.

We are also moving forward with plans to honor our spring and summer graduates with an engaging virtual graduation ceremony on July 25. Students who ordered caps and gowns will be receiving those items directly from the vendor next month. More information on our virtual graduation, including instructions for graduates, is available here.

To assist workers who have been laid off during this time, Wake Tech has increased its offerings of online resources and classes to help get them back into the workforce. Career specialists assist with resume writing, interview skills, and career exploration. Tuition and fees are waived for qualifying individuals who are unemployed or underemployed. Learn more.
