Kettering College Plans for Winter 2021 Semester Due to Coronavirus

  2. Clinical training will be face-to-face at clinical sites and through simulation activities on campus.
  3. Laboratory work will primarily be on campus.
  4. Lecture or didactic work will be a combination of face-to-face and online delivery.
  5. Students, faculty, and staff will be required to submit a negative COVID-19 test result and complete the online screening tool before returning to campus.
