TONKAWA — In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and to protect the Northern Oklahoma College campus community, NOC will be conducting online classes the two weeks following spring break, beginning Monday, March 23 through Friday, April 3.

Please be advised there are currently no known cases of COVID-19 at any NOC location.

The clear guidance from public health experts is that this step is a move to protect the health of NOC’s campus communities.

Students leaving campus for spring break should take all instructional materials including textbooks and devices to prepare for distance learning.

All college-related events scheduled to occur between March 14 – April 3 are suspended, with the possible exception of sporting events, which may be subject to spectator restrictions. This includes, but is not limited to: large recruitment events, tours, student programs, reunions, performances, conferences, and social events. We will continue to evaluate event hosting and will issue an announcement regarding events slated for April 4 and beyond. For more information, monitor the website at

All NOC campuses will remain open.  Faculty and staff should report to work as usual on March 23.
