CLTCC to ‘safe start’ spring semester Monday



Due to recent concerns with COVID-19, Central Louisiana Technical Community College (CLTCC) will begin the Spring Semester as planned Monday, Jan. 11 – virtually. Based on increased levels of COVID-19’s impact over the past few months, CLTCC Chancellor Jimmy Sawtelle said adjustments have been made to how the college will operate for the beginning of Spring 2021 semester.

Based on those revisions, CLTCC will:

• Start Spring 2021 semester as scheduled Monday, Jan. 11 with online and virtual instruction.

• Virtual instruction will conclude Friday, Jan. 29 and in-person class meetings will begin Monday, Feb. 1 at the earliest.

Students should contact their campus or instructor for exact scheduling. CLTCC emphasizes the health and safety of our students and staff as top priority. For this reason, any student or employee planning to return to campus on or after Monday, Feb. 1, is encouraged to take a COVID-19 test.

To assist, the college will partner to provide voluntary, no out-of-pocket cost COVID-19 testing for all CLTCC students and employees. This testing, hosted at the CLTCC Alexandria Campus, is tentatively scheduled from Jan. 26–29. CLTCC will continue to work with LCTCS and state officials regarding safety protocols and will provide updates as necessary. More information will be provided and updated at

In light of recent events, CLTCC will extend spring semester late registration to Jan. 15 assessing no late fees. For information about enrolling, visit For more information, contact the school via email at or call 800-278-9855.
