    Depending on the severity of the pandemic, SUNY Erie will be prepared to move all instruction, (i.e., Lectures and labs) remotely. Critical labs may be re-sequenced in the semester-by-semester program plan, moving lecture-based courses, remotely delivered, to the Fall 2020 semester.

    Any onsite learning will be conducted with appropriate social distancing, increased disinfecting protocols, and appropriate PPE where necessary.

  • FAQ

    What Happens to my Financial Aid if the College closes temporarily or classes are moved online
    Students continue to remain eligible for any financial aid they receive through the College. In addition, as a result of Coronavirus, the Department of Education’s Federal Student Aid Office released guidance that provides schools much greater flexibility in administering federal financial aid programs (Pell, SEOG, Federal Direct Loans, and Federal Work-Study). If you have questions, please contact Financial Aid at: 
    City (716) 851-1177 
    North (716) 851-1477

    If I have the Coronavirus, will I suffer consequences if I miss classes?
    You will not be penalized if you missed classes due to Coronavirus. The College has communicated with all instructors to ensure that classes will be able to be moved online. Your professor will work with you and will provide alternate solutions if you are ill. Contact your instructors by email if you have additional questions.

    What happens if a faculty member is unable to continue teaching a class?
    We have standard protocols for faculty members if they become sick or incapacitated. If a faculty member is sick and unable to teach another faculty member will replace them.

    Equity and Diversity

    As we begin a new semester, we are issuing a reminder that SUNY Erie places a high priority on maintaining academic programs free from sex/gender discrimination. Members of the SUNY Erie community should be aware of the following three important points:

    1. The Equity and Diversity/Title IX office remains open via remote operation at this time. Anyone impacted by sex/gender discrimination should contact Tracy Archie, Title IX Coordinator, at (716) 851-1118 or archie@ecc.edu to file a report. Investigations and interviews will be conducted remotely, and remedies provided, to assure that any sexual harassment, sexual violence, intimate partner violence, stalking, retaliation, or other sexually discriminatory behaviors are addressed promptly.

    2. College policies on sexual misconduct apply to behaviors that occur in person between members of the college community, but also apply to online and virtual misconduct ( review the Code of Student Conduct Policy here). Any behavior that is prohibited by policy is also likely prohibited in cyber-forms, including cyber-harassment, cyber-bullying that is sex-based, and cyber-stalking. Members of the community are expected to maintain a tone of civility and respect in online classes just as they would in face-to-face classes.

    3. Faculty and staff members, who are mandated reporters, are reminded that reporting of alleged sexual misconduct is expected when they become aware of incidents or allegations involving members of the campus community, regardless of how they learn of the potential misconduct, whether in person, in writing, or online.
