Update on the Fall 2020 Semester

Greetings to you all -

On behalf of all of us at North Country Community College, I want to extend our warmest regards to you and yours, and I hope this finds you all healthy and well.

I know these last couple months have been challenging, but I am incredibly proud of the persistence and effort that all of our students put in to complete their studies this semester.

Now that we’ve arrived at the end of the semester, I wanted to share with you the status of our planning for Fall 2020. In a nutshell, our planning is intimately tied to the course that the virus takes. At present, that course, along with many other things related to the virus, is unknown. We are working in close coordination with SUNY and the Governor’s office on various scenarios for the fall semester. Our primary and collective concern will always be to ensure our students learn in a safe and healthy environment.

At present, we are looking at and planning for two broad models for Fall 2020 classes: 

  • Mostly on-campus (where most classes are delivered as they were pre COVID-19, face-to-face setting), and,
  • Mostly on-line (where most classes are delivered as they were the second half of the spring semester).

As we learn more, we will share that with you. Our hope is to have a definitive decision in the coming weeks. We thank you for your patience and for choosing North Country as the place for your education. 


Thank you, 

Joe Keegan
