JSCC announces final plans for fall semester

The administration of Jackson State Community College has announced three versions of instruction that will be utilized during the fall semester. Faculty will use the three options to provide the high-quality learning experience Jackson State students expect while promoting a safe environment for students and employees. The three options include online classes, FLEX, and hybrid.

FLEX – Classes labeled FLEX will be taught at scheduled times through live-streaming using videoconferencing software (such as Zoom) provided by the college. Classes will meet online at scheduled days and times. Students will submit assignments and will have access to class materials through D2L (eLearn). FLEX classes are designed for those students who prefer a more traditional face-to-face classroom experience. Students will be able to talk with their professors, participate in class discussions, and enjoy group activities.

Online – Classes labeled Online are taught through the D2L (eLearn) system. Students can log in and complete assignments at times scheduled by the professor. Classes do not have assigned meeting days or times. Online classes are a great option for those students who cannot commit to attending class at a particular time. Students are able to work around job schedules and family responsibilities by completing coursework when it fits their schedule each week.

Hybrid – Classes labeled Hybrid will be taught using a combination of online or FLEX and small group settings on campus at scheduled days and times. Hybrid classes are designed for labs and skill-based courses (primarily limited to nursing, health sciences, engineering systems, organic chemistry, computer information technology) that require some in-person activities and training. The small-group settings will be conducted with required masks and appropriate distancing measures in place.

Registration for fall classes is available now, and students can apply for admission to the college by going to the admissions page at the Jackson State website,, or by calling 731-425-8844. The fall term begins on August 24.
