March 18, 2020 – To minimize the spread of infectious disease, Southwest Tennessee Community College has canceled all scheduled campus events and activities through May 31, 2020.  In addition, the annual commencement ceremony on May 2, 2020, at FedExForum will be rescheduled.  Events scheduled after May 31, 2020 are under review.

The College will remain open for business; however, operations will be scaled back effective March 18, 2020.  Select employees will continue to work on campus, while all others will work remotely. Normal operations are scheduled to resume April 6, 2020.

Last week, Southwest extended spring break to March 21, 2020.  Classes will be held entirely online March 23-April 5, 2020.  On campus instruction resumes April 6, 2020.

Southwest is monitoring the pandemic and may adjust operations and plans as new information emerges.
