Letter from President Sims - Moving Forward

Congratulations to everyone for a successful spring semester! While we look toward a future in which we know COVID-19 will remain a reality, we reflect on the lessons we’ve learned during the transition to online learning while we plan our safe return to campus in the fall.

Attention: 2020 Graduates! We Can’t Hug. But We Can Celebrate. 

Across the country, many graduating students and their universities are facing a difficult and emotional decision: what should we do about commencement?  

Letter from President Sims to the Community - April 22, 2020

Though I am sure you will not need it, I wish each of you good luck for this week’s final exams! As we approach the end of this semester with students preparing and completing final exams, Capitol Tech’s faculty and staff are finalizing the framework for the summer semester. We are pleased to report that the first summer courses will begin as scheduled on May 4th online via Zoom. We are also excited to share our first online video celebration for graduating students which will take place on May 2nd. We know this celebration does not replace an in-person commencement ceremony, so we are working to identify new dates to congratulate Capitol Tech’s soon-to-be alumni in the traditional fashion. 

Update from President Sims

The Capitol Tech team of faculty and staff continue to find new ways to serve our students no matter where they are currently. These improvements include updating the financial aid information available to students, disseminating organization tips for students to remain on-track while learning remotely, and staying up-to-date on the latest online learning tools and safety protocols.
