Latest Information for Staff and Students

The SSA is working hard to support our entire community of faculty, students, and staff during this difficult and unprecedented time. We have created this page to bring you accurate and updated information and advice. We will update it regularly as new information becomes available.


Essential Information:

  • Our goal for the Fall 2021 semester is to provide all students with an in-person educational experience to reconnect in the spaces of learning that we all cherish. The expectation is that all students enrolled in studios will attend these courses in-person at least one day per week, to prioritize in-person access to studio, library, fab labs, and computer labs. If at any time in-person attendance becomes unsafe, courses will shift to online instruction.
  • The Summer 2021 term will be conducted remotely.
  • The Spring 2021 semester will be conducted remotely. Town Halls, Crossover Reviews, and as many online events as possible will continue to keep us all connected and in touch during this unprecedented year.
  • All administrative staff and faculty are working from home.
  • CUNY COVID-19 Guidance on Academic Continuity
  • Make sure to regularly check your CCNY email and Instagram (@whatsonatSSA).
  • In accordance with guidance from the university chancellor, we are planning for a safe and gradual return to mostly in-person instruction and support services in time for the start of classes in Fall 2021.
