SUNY Brockport plans to fully re-open this fall


SUNY Brockport is planning to offer nearly 100 percent of its lower-level undergraduate courses in a traditional in-person format this fall. Those courses are the 100 and 200 level courses.

The college made that announcement as New York state has opened up eligibility for COVID-19 vaccines to everyone 16 or older. 

Brockport plans to offer at least 75% of the upper level undergrad courses, the 300 and 400 level courses, in a face-to-face setting.

SUNY Brockport officials say the university has long offered many graduate level courses online and will continue to do that moving forward.

In order to make these plans a reality, Brockport President Heidi Macpherson is calling in members of the SUNY Brockport community to remain vigilant in the fight against the coronavirus, including following guidelines about prevention and also getting vaccinated.
