SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – As a precautionary measure intended to protect the safety and well-being of students, faculty and staff, SUNY Schenectady will extend virtual instruction through the end of the Summer Session 2020. Classes begin May 26 and July 6 and continue through August 14.

The College will continue to provide all standard student support services virtually during Summer Session, including advising, academic coaching, library services, and tech support.

SUNY Schenectady transitioned all face-to-face instruction, including traditional laboratory classes, to virtual instruction beginning March 30. At that time, the College purchased hundreds of laptop computers to be loaned to students in support of their online learning. This program is available to students during Summer Session as well.

“While we plan to bring back in-class instruction as soon as we can, the health of our campus community remains our highest priority,” said Dr. Steady H. Moono. “I am deeply humbled by the resilience and flexibility our students and staff have demonstrated over the past month and I look forward to the day when we can once again embrace the energy and excitement of campus life.”

The campus Food Pantry remains open to students, faculty and staff and is accessible Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
