In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and with guidance from Alabama Community College System, Drake State has announced the fall semester instructional plan, which includes a combination of remote learning and in-person instruction where safe and appropriate.
IMPORTANT: July 15, 2020 - Governor Ivey announced an amended Safer At Home order which includes a statewide mask requirement. Students should check the College’s website, Canvas and their Drake State student email for additional updates.
All classes are being offered online. For courses that require competency check-offs, labs, and clinical hours, students are allowed to come to campus in small, scheduled groups. Please click here for updates to the modified instructional plan.
Through Banner, students will have 24/7 access to register for classes, view their schedule and access personal and financial aid information.
