Remote Learning for Spring Semester
The college is shifting to remote or online delivery modes for spring semester restarting March 30. Lab sections will be mostly taught in a distance format. Check your Clinton email for directions from your instructors as they may differ from course to course.
Academic Dismissals and Probation in Spring 2020
The College is suspending any academic dismissals or probation for students enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester. A student who would otherwise have been dismissed or placed on academic probation due to their cumulative grade point average, will instead be allowed to remain enrolled at CCC with no change to their academic status. They will, however, be subject to FA SAP review and may incur a loss of financial aid eligibility. Those students who have been impacted by COVID-19 and the disruption to campus operations, and have lost financial aid eligibility, must email the FA office at firstname.lastname@example.org. Their circumstances will be taken under consideration.
Help with remote/online learning
With the shift to distance learning, faculty will work with students to provide reasonable accommodations to ensure students can fulfill and complete their academic requirements remotely. Students who have concerns about access, equipment, and distance delivery should email their instructors so they are aware of the barriers students face.
The on campus library is closed but is available online and through Ask Us 24/7. This service connects students with a professional librarian at all hours of the day. The libraryâ€™s Research Guides are an excellent curated resource for all students.
Due dates for all library materials, for students as well as faculty, will be extended to July 31st. Interlibrary Loan will not include delivery of physical resources for the time being.
Financial Aid Refund Checks
Students expecting financial aid refunds will receive a check in the mail. Please do not come to campus to pick them up.
Spring 2020 Semester Costs
Per SUNY recommendations and calculating the Spring costs already accrued prior to COVID-19 epidemic, the college will follow its regular refund policies. There will be no additional refunds or credits for tuition and fees. However, the college is working on the CARES Act funds for eligible students.
As soon as application for that funding is available, it will be posted here and students will be notified through email.
At this time the office is working remotely. We'll use email as the primary mode of communication. Your forms can be submitted via fax - 518-562-4373, or you may email .pdf files to email@example.com. Android users simply scan with Google drive and IOS users scan with the NOTE app!
