Spring 2021 Campus Updates

In response to the COVID-19 crisis, New York Tech is developing an adaptable, responsive, and comprehensive campus re-engagement plan that follows all requisite national, state, and local guidelines while supporting a best-in-class student experience.

Campus Operations

  • Access to all New York Tech campuses will be limited after Thanksgiving, and campus access policies may change due to new state requirements for health and safety.
  • Anyone requiring campus access must complete an online COVID-19 Health Screen before arrival. Students must log in to access the Student Health Screen. All others should complete the standard Health Screen.
  • Security will check the Health Screen and take temperatures before allowing anyone access to campus.
  • Facial coverings must be worn and physical distancing must be maintained on campus.
  • See updated New York City and Long Island campus maps.
  • Equipment adjustments allow hands-free operations of entries/facilities and support healthy air quality. Disinfection is conducted frequently via multiple methodologies.


Fall 2020 semester:

  • After November 25, all instruction and final exams will be held remotely.
  • Students who are ill and/or experiencing personal challenges that prevent them from attending class should immediately contact the Office of the Dean of Students, which can provide options including withdrawal for health reasons.
  • Pass/Fail Policy: students (if their major allows) can take up to two courses pass/fail but must opt-in before final exams.

Spring 2021 semester:

  • Semester will run from January 25, 2021 to May 22, 2021.
  • Spring Recess will be one week later than originally scheduled and is now: March 27 – April 4.
  • While some spring courses are designated in-person, courses will be taught remotely until March 1 (COM and SoHP students should follow their programs’ instructions for this time period).
