Dean of Students Issues Update on Student Services

Campus shot

Rick Gatteau, Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students, has issued an update providing information about student services in the coming fall semester. The message reads as follows:

Coning Back Safe and StrongAs we continue to plan for the fall semester, this message provides important updates and details about key student services, including housing, dining, commuting, health and wellness, and other resources to support you. It also communicates expectations regarding wearing face coverings, completing a daily temperature check and symptom screening, and other proactive steps to keep you and our campus community safe and healthy. Please read this entire message so that you have accurate information to help you make informed decisions.

As a follow-up to Vice Provost Robbins’ email message, please log into SOLAR to review your class schedule. Note any changes to class meeting days/times and mode of instruction.  Pay close attention to any time conflicts that may appear. You have been assigned an enrollment appointment date/time, during which you can add, drop, and swap classes based upon your preference for mode of instruction or time conflicts. The academic planning team has offered as many options as possible, but recognize and appreciate your flexibility.  New first-year and new transfer students are being registered as part of the New Student Orientation process and should refer to their New Student Orientation and Academic Advising communications for information on registration.

As you may have questions about what campus life will be like in the fall and the availability of support resources, our student services team has developed, with helpful feedback from undergraduate and graduate student government leaders, a comprehensive set of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). These FAQs cover a range of student services and offer information on how to access important resources virtually and in-person this fall. Please spend some time reviewing the FAQs that apply to you. The FAQs reflect everything we know at this moment in time, but may change as we learn new information from SUNY or New York State. We encourage you to visit the FAQs frequently for updates. After reading the FAQs, if you have additional questions, please reach out to the appropriate department.
