Dear Students,

We are on the home stretch! Here is a spring semester wrap-up email. For those of you who are not completing their degrees and graduating this term, please also note important information as you prepare for summer and fall courses.

  • Students currently enrolled in Spring Semester courses have until:
    • Wednesday, April 29 by 1 p.m. to pay the spring term final payment. Late fees and registration “holds” for students on the payment plan have also been suspended until April 29.
      • Our on-line services remain available to you and you may make full payment on your account at any time by logging into My ZSC and clicking on the finances tab, and “pay my Tuition” or sign up for a payment plan by clicking “Start a Payment Plan.”
      • If you have questions pertaining to your account balance or payment options, please contact the Business Office at businessoffice@zanestate.edu for the fastest response.
    • Thursday, April 30 to withdraw courses (please note, the last day to withdraw was extended from March 21). If you need to adjust your schedule, please contact your Student Success Coach or program advisor by this Thursday.
  • Please read about our COVID-19, Spring 2020, Passed/Not Passed grade option here: https://www.zanestate.edu/pnp/.
  • Zane State College is interested to learn how you and your family may have been impacted by the COVID-19 ‘stay-at-home’ order. If you have not already, please take a few moments to share your thoughts and opinions in this short survey: https://bit.ly/34ZgbVh.
  • Thank you for your continued patience regarding the emergency relief grants from the CARES Act. Students who have completed, or are eligible to complete a FAFSA, may apply for an emergency grant associated with COVID-19 related disruptions to their education. Unfortunately, students who were already online before COVID-19, CCP, and students not eligible for financial aid are not eligible for this grant. Funds for eligible students are not yet available and we will be in touch as soon as it is. The full student FAQs for the CARES Act is found at https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/heerfstudentfaqs.pdf.
  • We are three weeks away from the start of summer semester! Have you scheduled your classes yet? Remember, if you are part-time student, having 20 hours at the end of summer term puts you on an ideal track to graduate on time. Full-time students, 30 hours would be ideal for you. Read over all that we have to offer you in the ZSC Summer Catalog and schedule your courses ASAP: https://www.zanestate.edu/wp-content/uploads/SummerCatalog2020web.pdf.
  • Our goal is to allow students with IT access challenges to come to campus this summer to work in socially distant and safe computer labs. We will keep you posted as soon as we have a solid plan in place that ensures the safety of our students and employees.

I wish you all the best as you prepare for finals week next week. Keep focused and stay healthy!

Dr. Richard Woodfield
