I hope each of you have enjoyed a restful and healthy winter break. The university is working hard to make the spring semester as safe and enjoyable as possible.
The university’s comprehensive plan awaits final approval from SUNY System Administration. Although elements could change, I want to make you aware that we are requiring all students to be tested for COVID-19 both before they come to campus and immediately after arriving in Cortland. Under our plan:
Please refer to our Spring 2021 Guide online for full details of the university’s plans. This page will be updated frequently as details are approved.
Testing will help keep all of us safe from this virus. Your actions, however, matter just as much. Those who violate these guidelines risk permanent dismissal, suspension or the loss of campus access. Please continue to wear face coverings, practice physical distancing and avoid large gatherings. The safety of our community must be our first priority, and we can have a safe semester as long as we follow these steps together.
I appreciate your patience as the university works to finalize plans as the pandemic continues. I will continue to share more details as soon as possible.
All the best,
Erik J. Bitterbaum
