Fall 2020 Opening

Spring 2021 Semester

Will the Spring 2021 semester begin as planned?

At this point, we are scheduled to begin classes for the Spring semester on January 19, 2021. Depending on the spread of the pandemic, we could delay the start of the Spring semester by a week, cancel Spring Break (March 13-21) and end the semester on time as planned. More information will be conveyed as we move closer to the end of the calendar year.

If professors are given the choice to teach in person or remotely and a student’s classes are all online, can the student live at home with room and board fees waived?


Have the Colleges made any decisions regarding study abroad in the spring?

The Colleges intend to make decisions by mid-October and will let affected students know at or before that time.

Is Commencement for the Classes of 2021 still planned for May 16, 2021?

Yes. We plan to hold Commencement as normal pending the approval of New York State.
