Anchor Team Islanders,

Like you, we are watching the news, checking social media and paying attention to the number of new COVID-19 cases in Nueces County. We realize that the numbers do not look good right now and many of you may be helping loved ones who are ill. Our hearts go out to you. As part of the Islander family, we do truly care about you and want you to be safe.

You may be wondering how we can say that and at the same time discuss registering for Fall classes. Because we do care about you, as a whole person. We care about your health and safety. And we care about the fact that you have the desire to get a college degree. We want to help you continue to pursue your educational journey. We know it is important to you.

Our faculty and staff have spent weeks developing a schedule and teaching format to help you continue your education AND do our best to keep you as safe as we can. We will continue to re-assess the situation, the research and the CDC guidelines and make any necessary changes as needed. You can find the most up to date information regarding Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi’s plans on the webpage dedicated to Fall 2020; the link is below:

The classroom plans are currently based on the number of students we have enrolled at this time. If you are planning to register for classes, please either do so, or let me know that you plan to do so, as it may impact our Fall schedules.

Please take care of yourselves!

Dr. Rachel Kirk

Program Manager, Anchor
