Summer Session Welcome
We are excited to welcome you to Summer Session 2021! We know that this is a challenging time in so many different ways, and we are glad that you are continuing to make progress toward your academic goals. Almost all of our classes are being offered online this summer (the few exceptions have hybrid or in-person as the instructional mode and they have a specific classroom assigned). Online courses that are on the schedule with a meeting pattern will meet online during those times, so you need to attend virtually just like you would a regular classroom-based course. Courses that do not have a meeting pattern in the schedule will not meet regularly, but they will have frequent due dates for assignments throughout the session. Please review your course syllabus carefully in Blackboard once your instructor activates the course.
Preparing for Online Learning
The Office of Online Education invites you to complete “Are You Ready?”, a one-hour online student orientation that prepares students for online learning. Note that your instructor may ask you to submit a PDF certificate that you receive upon successful completion of the orientation, be sure to save it so that you can easily retrieve it when needed. They have also prepared some additional student resources to help get you ready you for online learning, as well as a student FAQs’ page. All students taking an online class should also review a guide produced by CUNY: Distance Learning in the time of COVID-19: Tips for CUNY Students.
