Students and Faculty Welcomed Back from the Break as Spring Semester Begins

It was a rainy weekend on our New York campuses, but the sun fittingly came out today as faculty and students returned for their first day of the Spring semester.

While last Friday was the official start of the semester, today was the first day back for many professors and students.

Members of academic leadership and the administration were busy throughout the day welcoming students, answering questions, and helping them find their classes.

Our Student Services teams were equally busy, both on campus and in the virtual environment, to help students who hadn’t yet registered get their new class schedules in order. Monday, May 8th, will be the last day students may register for Spring classes.

Our Admissions, Financial Aid, and Bursar teams were also staffed up to ensure students with unresolved issues got the assistance they needed to have a great start to the semester.

In addition to staying open until 7:00 pm each night, Monday through Thursday, for the first two full weeks of the semester, College offices will be open this coming Saturday, May 6th, until 2:00 pm to assist students.

Classes are being offered this semester on campus, live in the virtual classrooms ("synchronous"), and completely online ("asynchronous"). 

With the exception of those in clinical programs, such as Nursing, DMS, and Education, students are not currently required to show proof of vaccination to attend in-person classes.
