As Alabama's COVID cases are continuing their downward trajectory, Bishop State Community College, with the guidance of the Alabama Community College System (ACCS), is beginning to construct reopening plans for the Fall 2021 semester.

At the directive of the ACCS, Bishop State plans to resume normal on-campus operations for all faculty, staff, and students. A contingency plan will remain in place should local and/or state health guidance, or guidance from the ACCS office, require drastic modifications to instructional delivery and college operations.

"The health and safety of our faculty, staff, and students is our top priority here at Bishop State," says President Dr. Reggie Sykes. "We know how vital face-to-face instruction is to the success of our students and we look forward to having them back on campus when we feel it is most safe to do so. Bringing students back to campus this fall gives us time to ensure this transition to normal operations is done so as safely as possible. We are excited to bring them back!"

Bishop State has been gradually preparing for this transition by expanding the physical presence of employees on campus and is working to increase student activity on campus beginning this month. The college plans to continue this process now through the summer semester until it hopes to return to normal operations this fall.

Bishop State wishes to thank students, faculty, and staff for their patience and cooperation during these times. Should you have any questions, please feel free to send them to
