Learn Well - Spring 2022 Plan

Update: December 1, 2021

As Wake Tech continues to navigate the evolving challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the college is planning a Spring 2022 semester consistent with our “Learn Well” objectives of allowing students to pursue their academic goals while keeping health and safety top of mind. To that end, the following measures will be taken with the understanding that adjustments to this plan may need to be made as events warrant. Wake Tech strongly recommends that all students and employees be fully vaccinated and boosted.

  1. Smaller class sizes are planned for in-person classes to allow for voluntary social distancing. 
  2. Masks are required in classrooms, labs, hallways and other gathering spaces for everyone, regardless of vaccination status. 
  3. Masks are required for in-person meetings, faculty office hours, or academic support services such as libraries, ILC’s, or academic success centers.
  4. All Wake Tech staff and faculty are requested to submit results of weekly COVID-19 testing or voluntarily submit proof of vaccination using the ReturnSafe app. However, the Wake Tech Board of Trustees has approved a temporary suspension of disciplinary measures stipulated in the college’s policy until challenges to the federal mandate are resolved.
  5. The college’s three full-time contact tracers will continue to monitor and analyze reports of positive cases and exposure.
  6. Plans for indoor food services and coffee shops will be made closer to the start of Spring semester.

In addition to vaccines, the college encourages faculty, staff and students to be mindful of other health and safety recommendations, including frequent hand washing. Anyone who forgets a mask can pick up a disposable mask at campus welcome desks, cashiers offices and libraries. Students who feel sick should not come to campus, but should seek medical care and contact their instructor.

Employees or students who test positive or have come in contact with COVID-19, either directly or indirectly, should email [email protected] and follow these important protocols.

Wake Tech has been responsibly monitoring COVID-19 developments on a daily basis and has been following the guidance of health officials since the outset of the pandemic. We will continue to adjust our health and safety protocols as events warrant.

Student Services

Wake Tech has established a Virtual Support Center for students, which is the best and safest way for students and prospective students to receive services such as admissions, financial aid, registration and records, advising, veterans services, career and employment resources, and wellness counseling.
