    Spring 2021 classes: Lectures and most labs (most of the natural sciences) will be conducted remotely (on-line). Only courses that cannot be taught on-line, such as those requiring specific equipment like dental hygiene and construction, may be conducted face-to-face with social distancing accomplished by reducing the numbers of students in each section.

    Students who attend face-to-face instruction during the Spring 2021 semester must participate in ongoing, SUNY mandated COVID-19 testing. COVID testing will be provided by the college at no charge to the student, starting January 13th. For more details, view the Spring 2021 COVID response plan.

    As part of our comprehensive strategy for controlling the spread of COVID-19 on campus, we are deploying #CampusClear, a daily self-screening app and campus FastPass. For more information, visit: www.ecc.edu/CampusClear/

    #CampusClear
    The health self-screening application #CampusClear is an option for visitors, students and staff to use to complete their self-screening in order to access SUNY Erie campuses and properties during the COVID-19 pandemic. SUNY Erie students and employee may register their SUNY Erie email account to the app to complete the self-screening. All data is transmitted encrypted and only limited individuals, appointed by SUNY Erie will have the ability to unencrypt data for purposes of monitoring campus access, contacting symptomatic individuals, performing contact tracing and reporting. The app does not conduct surveillance or tracking other than the utilization of the app, furthermore the app does not use Bluetooth or GPS and will not track your location. The #CampusClear privacy policy from the vendor Ivy.ai, is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tfWtU9s5bM_4EySUAnXjQQsbfqQJ2pdb/view. Please note, self-screening is only one part of the requirements for entering campus. For more information, view the Spring 2021 COVID response plan.

    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 
    South (716) 851-1677

    Please contact your campus Dean of Students for assistance with this.

    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.

    What resources are available for students experiencing financial emergencies due to Coronavirus?
    The College is committed to supporting students who are experiencing financial difficulty or incurring additional expenses as a result of Coronavirus. Students who are experiencing financial insecurity should contact the Dean of Students Office.

    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.
