Final summer session starts June 22

June 3, 2020


June 8 is the deadline to apply for Ashland Community and Technical College’s final summer session. The term runs from June 22 to July 26.

Summer sessions offer advantages to new and continuing students alike. New students can get a head start on fall, continuing students can complete their college program in a shorter time and working adults can take classes for job advancement.

Most summer classes are three credit hours, and many are offered in the general education subjects that are required for associate and bachelor’s degrees.

The majority of summer II courses are online, making it easier to fit college into vacation schedules.
Remote registration is taking place now. Admission forms and class schedules are on the web at For more information, call the Admissions Office at 606-326-2040 or visit

ACTC, KCTCS colleges in first stage of on-campus operations
The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) received approval from the Council on Postsecondary Education (CPE) for its plan to begin stages of on-campus operations, which began June 1.

During this stage, most ACTC faculty and staff will continue to work remotely, and contact information is available on the college’s website at Before visiting campus, individuals should contact the college to find out what services are available on-site.

The fall term begins Aug. 17 and classes at the 16 colleges will be offered in a variety of formats. Colleges will offer fully online classes as well as face-to-face classes and some options that are a mixture of both. Face-to-face classes will have a strong online or remote instruction part, so if in-person classes must move online for a while the transition will be easier for students. The colleges also will offer a variety of scheduling options, including 16-week, 12-week and 8-week sessions.

ACTC has developed an on-campus operations plan and designated a Healthy at Work Officer to oversee the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. All employees are required to take online training on health and safety protocols before they are allowed to return to work.

Safety guidelines for all people on campus include temperature self-checks and other health evaluations, social distancing inside and outside of all facilities, required face covering/mask and other specific recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Extensive signage reminding people of safety practices will be placed throughout any open buildings.

KCTCS will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and update college plans based on any changes from the governor’s office, the White House, CPE and the CDC.
