Clark, Registrar, and Richard Johnson, President met by ZOOM to discuss the possible need to postpone May Commencement to this fall. CRC has now decided to move Commencement to Saturday, August 15 beginning at 10 AM in the Carter Activities Center.

March 21, 2020 - Crowley’s Ridge College to have online classes only for the remainder of this semester:
Crowley’s Ridge College is committed to helping every student complete this semester successfully. We are following recommendations from government, medical, and higher education officials closely. As the pace regarding the spread and concern of the Coronavirus has quickened, CRC has decided it would be safest for all concerned to offer classes for the remainder of this semester through online instruction only. Classes are scheduled to begin again on Monday, March 30 in an online format.
The good news about this method is that many of our students have access to high-speed internet, a desktop computer/laptop, or a tablet, which enables you to complete these classes from the comfort of your own home. However, this may not be true for some of our students or perhaps there are other extenuating circumstances, which may require some students to be on CRC’s campus to complete this semester’s online classes.
For example: • If a student does not have access to high-speed internet or a desktop computer/laptop or a tablet. • If a student has a job in Paragould/Jonesboro but lives too far away. • If a student is not able to stay at home for a variety of reasons, which makes it too difficult to complete online classes at home. • If a student is already independent (on their own) and CRC is now your home.
These are all great reasons to come back to campus to complete your online classes for the remainder of this semester.
If you do return to CRC’s campus so that you can have access to your online classes from your college-dorm room or honor housing apartment, please understand that CRC will have limited services and activities. We will be implementing safe social-distancing practices as recommended by numerous government, medical, and higher education-related officials.
Please note the following: • CRC’s cafeteria food service will be in operation but all meals will be curbside/to-go. Eating in the cafeteria is not an option. • The Carter Activities Center (gym and student center) will be closed and will not be opened until deemed safe. • The Wilson Hall lobby and the Library will be limited to nine students at a time.
If you plan on returning to CRC’s campus, please let Art Smith, Vice President for Student Affairs know as soon as possible. Please email Dean Smith at email@example.com and let him know the date and time that you will be at CRC.
CRC faculty will attempt to contact every student by phone the week of March 23-27. We will also email students class syllabi and links to access online classes.
Questions about possible refunds are not being considered until CRC more fully understands all the changes that are needed to help our students complete this semester successfully. Our main concern at this time is to get through this difficult time while providing our students with a quality, Christian education. Information about possible refunds will be forthcoming at a later time, but rest assured these issues will be dealt with in a fair manner to our students. Please postpone your questions about possible refunds until May 11, 2020. Hopefully, by then, the issues caused by COVID-19 will be much better understood and easier to deal with at that time.
With the rise of the Coronavirus cases in Arkansas, and specifically, Northeast Arkansas on the rise, CRC is making sure we do everything we can to support our students, staff, and community while providing as much safety to campus as we can. We will be posting updated information, as it is available via our website, Facebook page, Twitter, and email.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this difficult and challenging time.
Sunday, March 22nd Due to recent safety regulations, lunch will be served in TO GO ORDERS ONLY. You may come in and go through the line or you may call ahead and it will be ready when you arrive. Thank you for your patience and grace as we try to serve you in the safest way possible. ... See MoreSee Less
