Southwestern Community College Opens To The Public

SYLVA – In keeping with Gov. Roy Cooper’s phased reopening plan, Southwestern Community College is now open to foot traffic from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays and will remain open as a virtual college from 8 a.m.-noon on Fridays.

Southwestern primarily transitioned to a virtual college on March 23 and continued operating in that capacity through the end of the spring semester earlier this month.

In the interim, college crews have outfitted all college locations with additional hand sanitizers, signs and plexiglass dividers to help keep college employees, students and visitors safe. Southwestern is following all guidance provided by the NC Department of Health and Human Services to ensure everyone’s safety.

Registration for fall classes is underway, and prospective students can get more info at or by visiting their nearest SCC location.
