ADJUSTED CUNY DEADLINES

To respond to this unexpected situation and to ease the transition to remote instruction for many of our students, CUNY has approved certain changes to our academic calendar. Please note the following:

Course Withdrawal Period – Last Day to Drop with a Grade of “W.” The current deadline date listed on the calendar is Wednesday, April 1, 2020. We will move that date to Thursday, May 14, 2020. This is the published “Last Day of Classes,” and before final examination week (05/16-05/22) and also prior to the “End of the Spring Term,” (05/22/2020).

Last Day to File for Pass/No Credit/Fail Option – For eligible students who meet the requirements of our “Pass/Fail/No Credit Option” policy, the University will move the deadline to TWO WEEKS after receiving their assigned grade. Meaning, students can wait to see what final grade they receive, and then ask for Pass/No Credit instead.

Incomplete Grades – Students who receive an INC grades in the Spring 2020 term would generally be required to submit outstanding work, “according to a deadline established by individual colleges of the University but no later than the last day of the following semester.” The University will maintain the current policy to allow students to submit completed work to faculty for resolution of INC grades for courses taken in Spring 2020 through the Fall 2020 semester. We expect that this provision will address some of the issues that have arisen as a result of student placements and internships that have been interrupted by this crisis.

HUNTER IS HERE FOR YOU

We want to reiterate that there are many resources available to support our community during this difficult and uncertain time.

For our students, we want to remind you that we have developed a Coronavirus Emergency Assistance Fund through the support of our loyal donors and alums; if you have lost wages, have unexpected medical costs, or have any other financial needs related to the coronavirus crisis, please contact Vice President and Dean of Students Eija Ayravainen for more information.

We have begun concerted fundraising efforts to provide students in need with technology , including laptops that students can take out on a long-term loan, to ensure all have access to remote learning. We have already been able to purchase new laptops for students to borrow, and we are committed to continuing these efforts. To learn more or request a technology loan, contact Director of Student Life Miesha Smith. Additionally, both our 68th Street campus and Brookdale campus food pantries remain open, and we are committed to keeping them stocked. The Counseling Center is open and here for you, both virtually and with some limited in-person and virtually sessions, to help you navigate this difficult time.
