We remain steadfastly committed to our students and meeting their needs during this unprecedented time. Due to the global pandemic and government shutdown orders, Concordia moved swiftly to continue instructional and academic support services including (but not limited to)  library access, tutoring, and advising. As a result, students are able to earn credits toward their degree programs.  Tuition and fees for the Spring 2020 semester will not be refunded.


FROM THE STUDENT ACCOUNTS OFFICE, APRIL 1, 2020

Dear Students,

Thank you for your patience while we worked through credit adjustments for the Spring 2020 semester.

  • Concordia College has prorated the following Spring 2020 fees; you will receive a credit adjustment of approximately 45% for each:
    Housing
    Unused dining dollars and board points
    Resident and commuter comprehensive fees
    Parking fees 
  • In addition, all EXL course fees have been credited back to students’ accounts.
  • Refunds will be issued for any accounts with a credit balance.
  • If you are on a payment plan, the credit adjustments will be applied toward your next scheduled payment. 
  • Please allow 30-45 days from April 1, 2020 processing. 

Please log into your Banner Self-Service account to view adjustments made. Click on Student Accounts and select Account Detail.

If you have any questions regarding your student account, please contact Denise Hopkins or Rosalin Gutierrez for further assistance.

Administrative Graduation Fee
The $225 administrative graduation fee charged to students who completed a graduation application remains in place. The fee pays for the administrative tasks necessary to grant degrees: the audit of each student’s record; the conferral of earned degrees noted on final transcripts; and the printing and mailing of diplomas. All these operations will be performed as usual, and each year the College charges this fee regardless of whether students participate in commencement ceremonies. Thank you for your understanding in this matter. Please note that if you ordered a cap and gown, you will receive it.  

Updated Incomplete Policy
In the event that an emergency or other extenuating circumstance prevents a student from completing assigned work, an instructor may issue an “I” or Incomplete. The instructor will fill out an Incomplete Form outlining the work the student must complete. The form will state a due date; this due date must be no later than August 15, 2020.

When the student has completed the work, the instructor will submit a Change of Grade Form changing the “I” to the appropriate grade. If work is not completed by the due date, the student will receive the default grade the instructor designates.

Additional Guidelines
International students without internet access will be given one month from the time they return to campus to complete their work. Students who contract the coronavirus will be given one month from being symptom-free to complete their work.

The following information is being provided by the Financial Aid Office, as informed by state and federal guidance. The information is fluid, and will be updated or changed as needed. It is intended to provide answers to some of the most common financial aid questions you may have as a result of the transition to remote instruction in the spring term.

Current Students:
What happens if a student withdraws or takes a leave of absence for the spring semester?

If a student withdraws (officially or unofficially), takes a leave of absence or falls below full-time status, all college administered scholarships, and grants for the spring semester will be cancelled. The financial aid office is required to perform a calculation to determine if a reduction in federal aid will be made in accordance with applicable regulations.

Will my scholarship be impacted?
In general scholarship aid, such as Academic scholarship/awards, outside agency scholarships, Merit, etc., will not be impacted as long as you are enrolled at least full-time (12 credits or more).

How will this affect Federal Work-Study jobs?
Federal Work-Study students will not be impacted for the time being.

What happens to housing and meal plans since we have moved to distance learning?
We know that students and their families will have questions about the disruption in room and board, more specific information will be communicated as soon as possible.

Incoming Students:
Will the Admissions and Financial Aid offices continue to send decisions and award notifications?
Admissions and financial aid will continue to work remotely during this time. Staff will continue to process financial aid and release decisions as they are available.
 

Dear Students,

The Conservatory Department is looking for singers, instrumentalists, composers and performers – and thanks to a substantial gift from a donor, scholarships are available!

This is a co-curricular program. All Concordia students – graduate and undergraduate pursuing any degree – are welcome.  All matriculated, degree program students are eligible for scholarships.

The scholarships are audition-based and will be awarded at three levels:

Top: up to $5,000 per year

Intermediate: up to $3,500 per year

Participatory: up to $2,000 per year

Top and Intermediate scholarships require a commitment to participate in an ensemble (for instance the Concordia Community Choir or a chamber/jazz/contemporary instrumental ensemble) and will include weekly, 60-minute private lessons (10 per semester). Participatory scholarships require an ensemble commitment and may include weekly, 30-minute private voice lessons (10 per semester). Concordia Conservatory faculty are teaching artists, each an accomplished professional musician. 

While we’re all off campus, video auditions can be arranged on an individual basis. Please contact me for more information.

Musical expression is a powerful, uplifting force at all times, and in these days more than ever. I wish you all good health and good spirits, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Video conferencing is new for many of us. Below are some basic guidelines and expectations for making remote learning productive and enjoyable.

  • Find a comfortable space to work where you can be focused and engaged.
  • Refrain from dressing in any way that might make your instructor or classmates uncomfortable.
  • If you are not using your phone to connect to class, please place it out of reach.
  • Socially distance yourself. Instructors will not assign any group work requiring a physical meeting.
  • Remember to mute your microphone unless you are responding to a question or participating in a discussion. Leaving your microphone on can cause feedback and distort the sound quality for everyone.
  • Do not take screenshots, or make audio or video recordings without the permission of your instructor.

As a reminder, any behavior that violates Concordia’s Student Guide Policy or Academic Integrity and Ethics may be reported by instructors to Student Experience.

Dear Students,

The Advising Period for the 2020 - 2021 semester starts today March 18th!

Please email your advisor to set up a phone or zoom meeting. Advisors look forward to connecting with you to help you continue to plan your academic future.

As you begin to plan remember:

  • You can view your degree plan at any time by logging into DegreeWorks: www.degreeplan.concordia-ny.edu . Use your ID number and the password you use for your email to log in.
  • Banner Self-Service has the course listings for the 2020- 2021 academic year so you can review what is being offered: banweb.concordia-ny.edu
  • The digital quad is an additional resource. Hover over the academic tab and click on Program Planning for more information.
  • Click below for a checklist for you to follow to ensure you are completing everything you need for the upcoming academic year.
  • Our IT help desk is available to help with any technology concerns you might have in regards to DegreeWorks, banner and blackboard. Email them at Helpdesk@concordia-ny.edu and include a screenshot when possible.
  • You are not alone! Your advisor is here to help you.

As the Director of Academic Advising I am also here to help you. Do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.

We look forward to helping you plan for the next academic year! We ask for your grace and understanding as it may take a little longer than usual for your advisor to respond. They will be receiving a lot of emails during this period. Therefore, the more preparation you can do before your meeting on your own will lead to a more productive and valuable use of your time.

Your advisor or myself will reach out with additional information or any updates as necessary.
