Spring Semester Schedule Detailed

spring semester online 2021 two weeks

Starting remotely, no spring break and ending a week earlier are highlights of the revised spring semester schedule released at SUNY Plattsburgh.

The adjusted framework is designed to focus on-campus classes to a more concentrated timeframe for public health and safety as has been done with the fall semester, as well as increased pooled surveillance testing for COVID-19. It also accounts for isolation and quarantine requirements that may be needed for some students as they return in January.

Features include:

  • Classes will begin, as originally scheduled, Monday, Jan. 25, 2021.
  • The first two weeks of the semester will be delivered remotely — fully online — to all students. This will permit for a phased return of our students to campus with a better managed transition to full density on campus. Non-essential staff will also be permitted to work remotely during the first two weeks of the semester.
  • The majority of returning residential students will be given scheduled times for their return to campus, beginning Friday, Feb. 5 and continuing through that weekend.
  • Following public health guidelines, there will be no spring break.   
  • Because spring break will be eliminated, final exam week will run May 1-7.
  • Spring Commencement is tentatively scheduled for May 8. The decision to celebrate an in-person commencement ceremony will be contingent on ensuring the health and safety of the campus and surrounding community. 

Students with internet access issues and/or housing and food security challenges may share these details to Campus Housing and Community Living and request support during the first two weeks of the semester.
