Coronavirus (COVID – 19) Campus Response & Messages

As of August 3, 2020, OFTC’s campuses are OPEN and available to assist you in-person, in addition to phone and email under normal operating hours. If you prefer to call or email us, please visit our Information Directory for contact information.

  • Classes for Fall Semester will be available face-to-face (on-campus), online, and hybrid (a combination of face-to-face and online).

OFTC will continue to follow COVID-19 guidance from the Georgia Department of Public Health (DPH) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including maintaining a social distance in classroom space and labs where possible. When social distancing cannot be maintained either in a classroom setting or lab, instructors and students will be asked to wear masks, as outlined in the previous TCSG policy on limited lab instruction. Outside of the classroom or lab environment, wearing masks is required, in conformity with the guidance issued by DPH and CDC.

Please continue to visit our website and follow us on social media for the latest updates.

Press Releases; Messages from OFTC President Erica G. Harden


Our lives have changed greatly in the last two weeks, but our commitment to one another, to our students, and to our communities remain steadfast. We are transitioning to distance education classes for our credit, non-credit and adult education classes. This will be a new adventure for some, but we will be here to guide you through it. We have to think differently about college and the way we are living our lives right now. However, we must remain committed to each other and our communities.
