Meeting of Trustees,May 12 2020, Wrapping up the spring semester and finishing with finals this week At the end of the semester spring enrollment was up. 70 students 4 25 and was approximately 3 down in credit hours Despite what we have worked through and the. transition to distance learning this is a good sign and proud of the work by faculty and staff to keep the withdrawals and. loss of credit hours negligible In the middle of March prior to going to online we were experiencing a 1 5 increase in. credit hours so to be able to mitigate and work through this with students is reassuring of the processes in place Our. focus has transitioned to summer and fall enrollment and working to complete virtual enrollment days with students at. this time Currently the admissions office has 261 students registered for enrollment days and will be coordinating. orientation advising and enrollment with students for these selected days for fall. CARES Act Emergency Grants, Over 572 000 in CARES Act funds have been distributed to 723 eligible students. The bulk of these were mailed late last week as checks to current addresses and included a letter from myself. o About 180 have applied for additional emergency grant funds these applications will be reviewed by. Financial Aid Office, A webpage went live on Monday on the GCCC webpage that details our handling of both the CARES Act and.
emergency grant application, o The webpage is required for DOE compliance and details about how many students received funding and. how much money has been distributed will be updated weekly on this page. We will continue to distribute these funds as more students become eligible by completing their 19 20 FAFSA this. If all funds are not exhausted it is possible some Summer 2020 students will also receive CARES Act funding. Re opening committee, The college has implemented a committee to review and provide a framework for re opening Following the Plan set forth. by Governor Kelly on the four phases of reopening the committee is working to develop policies and protocol for. reopening GCCC While there is not a timeframe set on when we will reopen the most important aspect at this point is to. use this time to put preventative measures and safety measures in place In addition to policies and protocol the. committee is also reviewing physical prevention features such as plexiglass inserts at main office counters enhanced and. increased cleaning and sanitation and other steps As a college other considerations that are being discussed and. reviewed are for residential life as well as for the classroom setting as we prepare for fall and reopening. FHSU Transfer Connect, Transfer Connect is a new partnership between GCCC and FHSU that went live April 20. At least five students have signed up for this program already. It allows students to receive academic advising as a GCCC student from a FHSU transfer coordinator streamlining. the transfer process by providing a direct line of communication with FHSU staff. It is a very valuable partnership because more students transfer to FHSU from GCCC than any out Kansas college. or university approx 40 50 annually KBOR reporting.
