QUEENSBURY, New York (March 11, 2021) — After a year with more than 6,000 weekly COVID tests and fewer than a handful positive results, SUNY Adirondack is pleased to announce its plan to offer significantly more classes and activities in person for its Fall 2021 semester.

“Our plans are, of course, dependent upon state and county guidelines,” said Dr. Kristine Duffy, Ed.D., president of the college. “We will continue to put safety and health first, but our hope is to welcome students back to campus this fall with more in-person and flexible learning options to accommodate different learners. Throughout the pandemic and the need for remote learning, we learned that some people need the flexibility of remote learning, while others thrive in person.”

Beginning in the Fall semester, the college will offer approximately 60 percent of its classes in person and continue to offer other formats for students who prefer to work remotely. That’s an increase from only 25 percent in the 2020-21 academic year. 

Safety protocols — including wearing face coverings, undergoing regular COVID screenings, social distancing where appropriate and regular disinfecting of shared spaces — are expected to remain and will be informed by state and local health officials. 

“Over the past year, we have proven that safety measures executed properly work,” Duffy said. “With the increased availability of the COVID-19 vaccine, we are eager to welcome new students and those who may have stepped out of higher education.”
