UACCB COVID-19 Update April 6, 2020

Posted Date - 4/6/20

On April 6, 2020, Governor Hutchinson and Secretary Johnny Key announced the extended closure of Arkansas public schools through the end of the 2020 school term. The governor stated the decision is based on public health concerns and that students will continue with alternative methods of instruction (AMI) through the end of the year. With this guidance, the University of Arkansas Community College at Batesville (UACCB) will complete the Spring 2020 semester via remote learning. The last day of classes will be April 28, with final exams scheduled for April 29-May 5. Final grades will be due May 7, 2020.

Students, please be reminded that UACCB will continue to provide tutoring in the Student Success Center, and the Row Johns Library is available to students from 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (adhering to the required social distancing and limiting groups of 10 people or fewer). For information regarding other tutoring opportunities, please contact Ms. Deanna Tillery ( or call 870-612-2041. Information regarding tutoring via Microsoft Teams can be found at HERE. You may also contact Ms. Sharon Gage ( or at 870-612-2019 if you have questions regarding library resources.

UACCB has extended the last day to drop or withdraw from courses or withdraw completely from the college to April 28, 2020. This extended deadline will allow you additional time to become more comfortable with the remote learning environment.  Contact your academic advisor if you have questions.

UACCB is currently registering students for the summer and fall semesters. Courses offered during both Summer I and Summer II sessions will be offered via remote learning. The Academic Advising Center has appointments available. For information regarding registration, please contact Ms. Comfort Winston ( or by calling 870-612-2160. She is more than willing to connect you with an academic advisor.

At UACCB, we understand that during these uncertain times, “business as usual” looks a bit different than before, but together we will get through this. Together we are making a difference. Please continue to practice social distancing, hand washing and limited group gatherings of 10 or fewer people.

As always, UACCB remains student-centered and community-focused. If you have questions, please call 870-612-2000.

Alert Message

Campus community,

Cases of COVID-19 continue to increase in Arkansas and in our region.  Earlier today, the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees passed a resolution for campuses to implement mask wearing policies.  The UACCB Administrative Cabinet has reenacted Campus Procedure 220.20, Face Coverings and Social Distancing for Student, Employees, Guests, and Visitors.  

Effective immediately, UACCB will require all students, employees, guests, and visitors to wear masks indoors.  

This revision of Campus Procedure 220.20 is tied to CDC data regarding the level of community transmission for our area.  We will utilize a “stop light” indicator system, depending on the level of community transmission:

RED: The level of community transmission is high or substantial, masks are required.
YELLOW: The level of community transmission is moderate, masks are recommended.
GREEN: The level of community transmission is low, normal campus normal operations are in effect.

Our area is currently in RED: the level of community transmission is high, and masks are required.

The UACCB Administrative Cabinet will monitor the CDC rating and will evaluate the scale weekly.  This is a small step we can take to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure we can maintain in-person learning.

Thank you.

Zach Perrine

Interim Chancellor
