Remote Instruction Policy

Teachers College has returned to in-person instruction. We will no longer be approving students for remote learning unless they are out of the United States and have unexpected travel or visa restrictions that prevent travel to the United States. Thus, apart from this limited exception, students are expected to come to classes for in-person classes. Only Distance Learning Courses will be held remotely.

Distance Learning Courses

Some classes at Teachers College are coded in the registration system as having a campus code of “Distance Learning,” and on the online course search with the green “Online” indicator. Those classes are being held fully online.  Most are coded in the registration system as having a campus code of “Teachers College,” and no green “Online” indicator on the online course search. That means the course will meet in person on the TC campus.

Disability Accommodations
For those students who were approved for remote instruction during the Fall 2021 and/or Spring 2022 semesters due to medical conditions that put them at risk for COVID-19 complications, please note that this was a College-level approval that is not considered an individual disability-related accommodation. 

Students experiencing disability-related barriers they believe are preventing them from attending class in person and engaging in a meaningful learning experience during the Summer 2022 or Fall 2022 semester may contact OASID at to discuss whether they may be eligible to receive disability-related accommodations.

For questions about returning to campus, please send inquiries to
