Student Return to Campus Plan

Fall 2020 at SUNY Schenectady

SUNY Schenectady is ready to assist you in anyway we can to ensure your fall semester is productive and engaging. Given the College’s continued virtual instruction, there are new protocols which will be implemented for students who will be coming to campus to utilizes support services or for lab classes.

  • The College continues to be open for business Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
  • There will be no evening face-to-face services provided for the fall semester, unless previously arranged with a member of staff.
  • If you have a lab course (see list below) held on campus, you will enter and exit from the same location. This will allow us to monitor and track in the case of a COVID-19 positive case on campus.
    • Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism classes will enter and exit through the Casola Entranceway
    • Natural Science classes will enter and exit through the Main Elston Hall Entranceway, near the Security desk
    • Music classes will enter and exit through the Music Building Main Entranceway.
    • If you arrive by CDTA, no matter your class type, you will enter through the Canal Side Café Entrance on Route 5.
  • All individuals (students, staff or visitors) visiting campus will be required to complete a health assessment each day. You can complete it prior to arrival each day or in person when you arrive to campus. SUNY Schenectady will be using an app, and details to complete the health assessment will be provided later this summer.
  • A temporary policy will be in place for the fall semester requiring all individuals entering a campus building, must wear a facemask/shield at all times.
  • To ensure continued safety, hand sanitizer dispensers will be located throughout campus and our Facilities staff will clean and disinfect campus regularly. We will also have cleaning supplies in each classroom/computer station to use before and after each use.
  • Student Government Association (SGA) and clubs/organizations will continue during the fall semester. SGA elections will be held in early September and student activities will occur virtually through the semester. Be on the lookout for information regarding SGA elections.
  • SUNY Schenectady will continue our laptop loan program. An email regarding the program will be sent out to students in early August.  
  • If you are taking a face-to-face class this fall and become ill, please reach out to us at studentscovid19@sunysccc.edu.

 

COVID-19 Testing for Students

SUNY Schenectady continues to take steps to protect the health and safety of the campus community. Given the recent spikes in COVID-19 cases being reported at our nation’s Colleges and Universities, all students taking at least one on-campus class will be required to submit to a COVID-19 saliva test every other week. This protocol is being adopted at every SUNY campus across the state.

This testing will be mandatory for students and will allow SUNY Schenectady to identify cases among students early on and take steps to prevent further spread of the virus.

Learn more in this video from Dr. Moono.

 

Compliance

Compliance with our campus safety requirements is mandatory. If a student refuses to comply with these requirements, they will be denied entry to the buildings and directed to leave the premises. Should they refuse, law enforcement will be contacted for assistance. Students who are sent home due to their refusal to these safety measures may also face additional code of conduct processes.

 

Free Resources, How-To Instructions, and Campus Supports

SUNY Schenectady remains committed to your success with virtual instruction. The Student Resource page includes information to help you to be successful as you take your courses.

 

Student Laptop Loan Program

SUNY Schenectady, through a US Department of Education Title III grant, is able to loan laptops to students for the fall semester to ensure full access to their online coursework. To request a laptop, please complete the Laptop Loan Request form and return it to studentcovid19@sunysccc.edu. Appointments will be made for students to pick up a laptop.
