From Elizabeth Hendrey, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs:
As announced by QC President Frank H. Wu in March (read the full message at, Queens College is making plans to resume appropriate in-person operations for the fall semester. In order to bring students back in person while following scientifically-grounded recommendations to keep the campus safe, we have chosen not to offer any classes as completely in person. Instead, expect to see:
  1. courses that will be conducted in hybrid mode: some sessions will be on campus (conducted with the required level of physical distancing and masking), some sessions will be online (synchronous or asynchronous)
  2. courses that will have in-person exams
  3. courses that require in-person experiences that will take place off-campus (student teaching, internships, fieldtrips, etc.)
  4. courses that will require a visit to campus to pick-up or return materials
  5. courses that will be entirely online.
The first day for all classes will be virtual to provide appropriate time to discuss safety protocols and how the class will be conducted for the semester. Additionally, if a rise in coronavirus cases should necessitate a move to online learning, we will know at the start of the semester if students in each course have the necessary access to learn remotely.
Any course listed as hybrid (H) in CUNYfirst will be in one of the categories from 1-4 in the list above. Look for the details in the class notes in CUNYfirst or contact the instructor or the department. Hybrid (H) or online (O) courses in CUNYfirst will also indicate whether the course has synchronous online sessions (OL-01), which meet for class sessions in real time at the specified days and times, or asynchronous online sessions (OL-02), which do not have regular online class sessions.
