NCCC Coronavirus Information

Niagara County Community College is closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The health, safety and well-being of our college community is our top priority, and we are working closely with local, state and SUNY officials. NCCC has decided to take a series of proactive measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, including the move to online or other teaching modalities, effective March 30. We will continue to update our students, our employees and the community, using this webpage as a resource, as new information emerges.

Announcement regarding
Summer 2020 courses

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

The distance learning modality of course instruction will remain in effect at NCCC during the first summer sessions.

Summer I mod and the full Summer 12-week session, both beginning on May 26, 2020, will continue as online modalities due to the continued threat of coronavirus. The modality of Summer II, which begins July 8, is yet to be determined but will be closely monitored.

NCCC is following the advice of SUNY and Governor Cuomo to make these difficult decisions.

Students whose original face-to-face courses are being changed to online versions will not be charged distance learning fees.

Summer Session I May 26 - July 7 6-week mod online
Full Term Summer Session May 26 - August 18 12-week mod online

Update on spring 2020 semester

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Niagara County Community College will continue to deliver all courses through virtual modes of distance learning for the remainder of spring 2020 semester. The extension includes final exams/evaluations, which will be taken online or through a remote learning method determined by instructors. This will allow you to continue your coursework and plan with greater certainty for the coming months. Though classes will not be meeting in person, the College will be open to essential personnel only.
Unfortunately, this is a necessary step being taken by NCCC and other colleges across the country to protect the public’s health. Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our students, as well as our faculty, staff and the entire NCCC community.
NCCC’s highest priority is the health and well-being of our community, and we are following guidance from SUNY and our local Health Department officials in all decisions. A decision will be made regarding summer classes later this week.

Sincerely,

William J. Murabito
President

Lydia Ulatowski

A Message from
President Murabito

After an extended spring break, NCCC resumes classes today in an atypical and unexpected way, but with the health and safety of all of you and your families at the forefront of our priorities. The COVID-19 virus has upended the lives and routines of people globally and while we are no longer able to interact in person, recognize that NCCC is striving to ensure the needs of our students are met and they will still receive the best education possible during these uncertain times. Faculty have worked diligently during the past two weeks to migrate courses online, and the campus community has come together to ensure we have a seamless transition to a new reality. While we anticipate some glitches, we promise to address each and every one as they arise and keep you informed throughout the process.

During this time I am reminded of the first sentence of the college mission statement, “Niagara County Community County provides flexible teaching and learning environments dedicated to educational excellence and committed to our core values of student centeredness, accessibility, comprehensiveness, collegiality, community partnership, and lifelong learning.” While everyone in the NCCC community is being challenged under the current circumstances, I am confident we will remain true to this mission and become a stronger, more united force after overcoming the obstacles we are facing now.

Every day new information is unfolding, and we are doing our best to keep the campus community engaged and informed. Please continue to refer to the NCCC website at niagaracc.suny.edu for updates. In the meantime, let’s focus on working together to achieve academic excellence and finish the spring semester on a high note!

Wishing you continued health,

President William J. Murabito, Ph.D.
