For the Spring session, under the guidance of State and County officials, and placing health and safety first, Nassau Community College will provide the majority of courses that can be instructed remotely or online in this format. Per SUNY’s guidance, the start date for any face-to-face components of courses will not begin until February 1 except for a few courses, such as labs, that will begin on January 19. Information on form of instruction will be located in the course descriptions upon registering.
As we return to campus in Spring 2021, Nassau Community College’s (“NCC”) first priority is the health and safety of our campus community, including all students, faculty, and staff.
Additionally, the SUNY guidance calls for the elimination of a week-long Spring Break to maintain the health and safety of our community. The College will be following this guidance, however there are several days scheduled throughout the Spring semester when classes will not meet. Our hard-working students, faculty and staff deserve that time to reset and refresh.
Support areas that can continue to effectively work remotely will continue to do so until further notice. Expanded staffing will be tightly managed and coordinated to mitigate potential risks and to maintain the health and safety of the NCC community.
Outlined throughout these pages is the College’s Safety plan, developed by College’s Reinventing Task Force, which incorporates the many voices of the Campus community, including administrators, faculty, and staff. Once logged into the MyNCC Portal, you can view the full plan submitted and approved by SUNY. It is also important to note that our plan remains subject to change as new information, guidance and/or direction is received from the State of New York, SUNY and the County of Nassau.
The College has established a clear set of standards and responsibilities for all community members which are outlined below and which include requirements for the use of face coverings; expectations for physical distancing, personal hygiene and cleaning of personal spaces; and cooperation with screening via the College’s app that can be downloaded onto a cellphone or accessible through the NCC portal.
The College will clearly and recurrently communicate these standards and expectations and they will be incorporated into the Student Code of Conduct and other relevant College policies and procedures as appropriate.
Please keep in mind this global pandemic is an ever-evolving situation and as such information provided on this website is subject to change.
The NCC COVID-19 Compliance Corner is an option for making a confidential report online to help individuals identify and address compliance concerns regarding COVID-19.
This includes concerns related to compliance with COVID-19 health and safety standards (e.g., compliance with social distancing, personal protective equipment, and cleaning and disinfecting standards). An individual may provide their name and contact information, or may chose to remain anonymous. Individuals may still report their concerns through the traditional reporting channels. Creating and maintaining an environment that maintains health and safety during this unprecedented time will be a collaborative effort and we need your help.
