| 20 Apr 2020 | 08:00

    SUNY Orange is moving its on-campus summer classes to online formats to support current students, as well as visiting students, who want to continue their studies in a safe environment while COVID-19 regulations are ongoing.

    The college will communicate with students already registered for summer classes to clarify how the on-campus instruction is being transitioned and to help those students adapt to the changes as smoothly as possible.

    This year’s summer session 1 will be held from May 26 to July 2.

    Summer session 2 is planned for July 6 to Aug. 13.

    “We recognize that for many of our neighbors, their future looks different today than it did two months ago,” said Dr. Kristine Young, SUNY Orange president. “We want them to know we are here for them. They can do it, and we can help.”

    All students continue to have online access to the college’s full array of student support services, including admissions, financial aid, registration, advising, tutoring, health and wellness counseling, and student activities.

    There are many financial resources available for students, including federal (Pell) and state (Tuition Assistance Program) grants, New York State Excelsior scholarship, SUNY Orange scholarships, student work-study, loans, and many others.

    Students may also qualify for programs such as TRiO and Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) that support underserved and financial disadvantaged populations. The GI Bill is available to support veterans, and the college manages an Emergency Fund and Food Pantry for students in need.
