The College of Professional Education (CPE) will resume in-person instruction on August 1, 2020. Many CPE professional certificate programs and community courses will be offered in both classroom (face coverings required) and live-online formats. Read more on our Class Delivery Methods webpage.
Below are a few FAQs for in-person and online courses here at CPE. We look forward to seeing you in class or online soon!
I’m attending my course in-person. Are face coverings required?
Yes. As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the College of Graduate and Professional Education is requiring face coverings for all in-person instruction of Professional and Community certificate programs. For the safety of all, we ask that students bring and wear their own face coverings.
How will social distancing be ensured during in-person courses?
The College of Graduate and Professional Education is committed to providing a safe learning environment. To ensure that those attending in-person courses will be able to practice proper social distancing, we are offering our courses in two formats: Flex and Hyflex.
What guidelines will I be asked to follow while attending an in-person course?
All staff, students, and instructors will be asked to follow CDC guidelines while working and learning in the KSU Center:
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer that is at least 60% alcohol.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover your sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash.
- Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
- Practice social distancing where possible (maintain 6 feet distance with others).
- Continue to wear a face covering in public areas.
- Stay home when experiencing symptoms of illness.
I’m attending class online. How will the class be recorded?
In-person instruction will be broadcast and recorded for the benefit of those students who are taking the course via the Live Online modality. When you enter a Kennesaw State University College of Graduate and Professional Education (CGPE) classroom or instructional space, you enter an area where photography, audio, and video recording may occur.
By entering the instructional premises, you consent to audio recording, video recording and its/their release, publication, exhibition, or reproduction to be used for news, webcasts, promotional purposes, telecasts, advertising, inclusion on websites, social media, or any other purpose throughout the universe in perpetuity by CGPE and its affiliates and representatives. Images, photos and/or videos may be used to promote similar CGPE courses in the future, highlight events, and exhibit the capabilities of CGPE. You release CGPE, its officers and employees, and each and all persons involved from any liability connected with the taking, recording, digitizing, or publication and use of interviews, photographs, computer images, video and/or or sound recordings. If entering the instructional premises with a minor, you are also consenting on their behalf.
What happens if campus closes due to COVID-19?
In the event that a Kennesaw State University campus closure is implemented due to COVID-19, the College of Graduate and Professional Education (CGPE) courses will move forward as scheduled in a tech-enabled/online environment. If the coronavirus makes our building unavailable to students, it will not impact CGPE’s commitment to education. The methods of instruction will shift, but the quality of instruction will be the same.
Who should I contact if I have questions?
Please refer all questions and concerns to your instructors and program managers.
