HCCS Focus on Spring Plan

Hunter College is taking unprecedented steps to building a comprehensive plan to support education and critical research both on campus and online. Our strategy is based on the guidance of CUNY and Hunter’s experts, as well as local, state and federal officials.

Anyone coming to campus needs to complete both the Health Screening App and Online Safety Training first.


Hunter College convened a task force to establish high-level guidelines and resources to inform the process of reopening the Hunter College Campus Elementary and High School for in-person instruction per the NYS guidance during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

The goal of this document is to ensure a safe and streamlined re-opening of school activities, while mitigating infections and assuring the Hunter College Campus Schools comports with City, State, and Federal Guidelines.

    4. Entrance Exam

Based on what is known today regarding the Covid 19 pandemic, we are developing an action plan to safely reopen the Hunter College Campus Schools (HCCS) for in-person learning. This plan will evolve as needed according to guidelines set forth by New York State, the Center for Disease Control and CUNY/Hunter College. Our most important consideration is the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and the HCCS community.

In-Person Instruction Plans

HCCS will follow the overall guidance of New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and CUNY.
