Provost Communication to Students Regarding Fall 2020 classes

Dear Students,

On Friday, July 24, 2020, President McColgin shared important information with you regarding Fall 2020 classes. In that communication, she announced that Fall 2020 classes will be delivered via a combination of three modes of delivery, as an effort to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our campus community. They are as follows:

  1. traditional online - asynchronous where students log in on their own time and complete work as per the course schedule
  2. real-time remote - students and instructors meet virtually together as scheduled using Microsoft Teams (provided by the College)
  3. a limited number of on-campus, in-person classes and labs that will incorporate social distancing

Transitioning the majority of on-campus, in-person classes to real-time remote will allow the college to decrease the student population in classrooms and common areas, thereby lowering the risk of spreading COVID-19.

The Fall 2020 master schedule has been adjusted, and you may now review your schedule to identify the mode of delivery for each of your classes. Access your Fall 2020 schedule in Student Online Services.

  • Section numbers that begin with R will be conducted real-time remote during your regularly scheduled class time. Example EN 111 – R1.
  • Section numbers that begin with V or S will be the traditional online where you will log in on your own time. For example, EN 111 – V1 or EN 112 – SO1
  • All other section numbers will be on-campus, in-person classes or labs meeting during your regularly scheduled class time.

Faculty will be contacting students enrolled in real-time remote and on-campus, in-person classes or labs to provide additional details about the class schedule, course requirements and access instructions prior to the start of the semester.

Please monitor your Herkimer email for more details and further updates as the semester approaches.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your class schedule, please contact the Advisement Center at (315) 574-4029, and one of the academic advisors will assist you.

Please be assured that we are all working to create the best possible learning environment in the context of this public health crisis. Thank you for your support and confidence in Herkimer County Community College as we move through these uncertain times together.
