Frequently Asked Questions
By Monday, July 27, students will be able to see which of their registered classes are now online, which are hybrid, and which are still face-to-face. Students who desire a different mode for their courses should look at the University course schedule to see if there are other sections offered that are in their desired format.
We will be making an online-only request form available to all registered students. The purpose of this form is to provide assistance and advising for change requests. We will do our best to align a student’s desired course format with available options.
Students with underlying medical conditions requiring online instruction as an accommodation will receive priority placement in available online courses. Students with this request should also use the online-only request form to initiate this process.
Along with students requiring medical accommodations, our international students will receive priority placement in online courses. Please use the online-only request form.
No. If you like your classes as scheduled, you don’t need to change a thing.
We are putting in place several measures to ensure a safe learning environment. Our classrooms will receive daily deep cleaning, and each room is capped at a maximum capacity for physical/social distancing. Directional signage is in place to manage traffic in and out of buildings and classrooms as well. And masks will be required.
Masks will be mandatory in all public places on campus including classrooms. The University will have a limited emergency supply of masks on hand, but students are expected to acquire their own masks.

How do I get a CBU ID?
Campus Safety will be making IDs for all new students, faculty, and staff – as well as anyone who needs a replacement ID – in the Montesi Executive Center in Buckman Hall between the hours of 10:00 am and 8:00 pm starting on Monday, August 10 and ending on Sunday, August 16.
