WINTERVILLE—With classes scheduled to begin Jan. 7, Pitt Community College is set to resume registration for the 2021 Spring Semester on Tuesday.

PCC Registrar Angela Cline said students may begin registering online or with academic advisors via video conferencing at 8 a.m. tomorrow. Students who add classes Jan. 5-6 must pay for them by 5 p.m. Wednesday to prevent their schedules from being deleted.

Cline says students can pay online through their myPittCC accounts, adding that an installment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions may be a payment option for some to explore.

Students who have applied for federal financial aid for the 2021 Spring Semester must have a finalized award in place by Wednesday’s payment deadline in order to secure their schedules, Cline said. Those who do not, she said, must pay out-of-pocket and wait for reimbursement through financial aid, if it is approved.

Due to ongoing health safety concerns associated with the coronavirus pandemic, most of PCC’s spring classes will be taught virtually, which includes internet, hybrid and synchronous online instruction. College officials say virtual synchronous classes offer more structure than other online courses and operate very much like the traditional, in-person classes they replace.

For classes that necessitate face-to-face interaction – many in the areas of health sciences and construction and industrial technology – PCC has taken measures to enhance safety, including facial mask requirements, hand sanitizing stations, social distancing, frequent cleaning of ‘high-touch’ surfaces, and thorough sanitization by nighttime cleaning crews.

Students who need registration assistance are encouraged to email pccadvising@my.pittcc.edu and include the following information: name, student identification number, major and telephone number. They may also call the Admissions & Advising Department at (252) 493-7578.
