NOC summer courses moved online


Northern Oklahoma College summer classes will move to online and distance learning following its decision to shift classes for the current semester.

  “Summer classes will still be offered; however, the format of some of these courses will be changing to continue to accommodate CDC guidelines for social distancing,” said Dr. Pam Stinson, Vice President for Academic Affairs.

  According to Stinson, students may enroll in online courses or synchronous Zoom courses (that is, courses that meet online at the same time as the physical class would have met) for which they log in to classes at regular class times but participate in the courses from off-campus.  For synchronous Zoom courses, students need access to a computer with a camera and microphone. For a complete listing of courses, students should refer to the  NOC Live Course Availability on NOC’s website.

  Students may enroll for summer school as well as the fall semester by either contacting their advisor or by NOC at 580.628.6220 (Tonkawa), 580.548.2275 (Enid) and 580.628.6910 (Stillwater). All enrollment appointments are currently conducted by email or over the phone (please leave a voicemail).

  The college continues to monitor the progress of the COVID-19 virus through the state.  To further support social distancing and to comply with Governor Stitt’s amended executive order on April 1 for all non-essential businesses to close temporarily, NOC has closed all buildings on-campus through April 30 to the public while retaining essential services and functions with modified access.

  NOC will continue to monitor and evaluate operations for May 1 and beyond.

  All college-related events, both on-campus and off, scheduled to occur prior to June 30 are suspended. Additionally, all non-college events that were scheduled on all three campus locations are suspended as well. NOC will evaluate adding events after June 30 on a case-by-case basis.

  Northern Oklahoma College, the state’s first public community college, is a multi-campus, land-grant institution that provides high quality, accessible, and affordable educational opportunities and services which create life-changing experiences and develop students as effective learners and leaders within their communities in a connected, ever changing world.

  NOC, a public two year community college, serves 4,200 students on the home campus in Tonkawa, branch in Enid, NOC/OSU Gateway Program in Stillwater, online, and the University Center in Ponca City.

In 2019, NOC celebrated the 20-year anniversary of the Enid campus and a 15-year partnership with OSU for the Gateway Program.

  NOC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and offers associate degrees in three general areas: Arts, Science and Applied Science.  The associate degree fulfills lower-division course work which is applicable towards a bachelor’s degree.
