5/8/2020 7:29:00 AM Nicolet registration underway as college moves forward in virtual world
While the Nicolet campus is physically quiet due to COVID-19 Safer at Home guidance, the college is humming along in the virtual world as students finish up spring term classes online and enroll in upcoming offerings for summer and fall terms, school officials said in a press release.
"The transition to holding all classes online and conducting other business remotely actually went quite smoothly," noted Dean of Enrollment Erika Warning-Meyer. "All of the services we offered before the pandemic are available today, just sometimes in a slightly different format."
In late March, all face-to-face classes that were in progress switched over to an online format. The college also quickly put systems in place for current and future students to take care of a myriad of other services either electronically through email or video conferencing or over the phone.
"A lot of our departments already had most if not all of these processes in place," Warning explained. "So that helped a lot and made for a pretty quick switch to get everything done that needed to be done without having to meet face to face with anyone."
Nicolet services and departments that are available include Advising and Registration, Disability Support Services, tutoring labs and 24/7 online tutoring services through NetTutor, career exploration, admissions assistance and processing, the Financial Aid Office, emergency financial assistance through the Nicolet Foundation, the Academic Success Center, and the Nicolet Library.
Other areas that are available to students are the Transitions Counseling services and the Information Technology Help Desk.
Warning stressed that anyone considering attending Nicolet this summer or in the fall should contact the college to move ahead with their plans.
"We know the current situation we are all in is temporary," she said. "This will pass. But a college education, it's important to remember that that pays dividends for a lifetime."
