New River CTC counts down to start of fall 2020 classes

BEAVER, WV (WOAY) – New River Community and Technical College staff and faculty are coming back to campus for fall 2020 registration events on July 29 in Princeton, August 3 in Lewisburg, August 4 in Summersville and August 5 in Beaver. Events will be held outside college campuses from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., and attendees should register online at

“As we move closer to the start of the fall semester, we want to reach out to students to ensure that they’re registered and ready for classes,” explained Executive Director for Institutional Advancement and the New River CTC Foundation Michael Green. “We’ve been very efficient working remotely, but these events will allow students to drop off transcripts or other paperwork and talk to staff about classes.”

Admissions, faculty and Student Success Center representatives will be on hand to assist both current and new students with the registration process. Those needing to take placement testing should complete the online registration form and plan to come to campus by 9 a.m., and attendees should wear a mask.

Those unable to attend the Registration Day events are encouraged to contact the college to schedule an appointment to register for classes. Fall classes start August 17.

New River CTC offers more than 60 degree and certificate programs with over 30 eligible for the WV Invests Grant providing free tuition. For fall 2020, New River CTC will offer classes in three formats: face-to-face, online and web enhanced face-to-face.
