Extended Learning

Extension Programs and Distance Learning


The Extension program offers select SUNY New Paltz courses at several off-campus sites. This makes attending college easier for those who find it inconvenient to travel to New Paltz. Late afternoon, evening, and weekend courses are featured to allow busy working adults time to take courses while holding down a job.

Presently, New Paltz has extension sites in Hudson Valley counties offering courses for the graduate programs of the Department of Educational Foundations & Leadership and the Master of Science in Literacy Education within the School of Education.

Courses begin every spring, summer, and fall.

Distance Learning Complaint Resolution

All SUNY New Paltz students taking distance learning courses should first follow campus procedures for attempting to resolve complaints. SUNY New Paltz procedures for resolving academic complaints, such as grade appeals and academic standing appeals, can be found online at https://www.newpaltz.edu/ugc/policies/policies_appeals.html (for undergraduate students) and https://www.newpaltz.edu/media/the-graduate-school/catalog/Academic%20Policies_9-22-16.pdf (for graduate students).   Non-discrimination and non-harassment policies, procedures, and resources can be found at http://www.newpaltz.edu/ccc/aa_antiharassment.html.

Out-of-state students

Students residing in states other than New York may, after exhausting campus procedures, file complaints according to the policies of the state in which they reside. To assist students, the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) has compiled the appropriate contact information for each state. The list can be accessed at http://www.sheeo.org/stateauth/Complaint%20Process%20Links.pdf. Students should follow the procedure for their state of residence.
