At N.C. A&T, 30 percent of students will take all their classes online this fall By John Newsom email@example.com

GREENSBORO — Thirty percent of N.C. A&T students will take all of their classes online this fall.
That's a record for the Greensboro university and an indication of how COVID-19 will shake up higher education this fall.
Just 4 percent of A&T students are enrolled solely in on-campus face-to-face classes this fall, Chancellor Harold Martin told A&T trustees Tuesday. The vast majority — 66 percent as of Monday — will take a mix of online and in-person classes or hybrid courses that blend both formats.
A year ago, according to federal education data, about 10 percent of A&T students took only online classes. Two-thirds of undergraduates took no online courses at all a year ago.
