Bryant & Stratton College is guided by our mission to offer a personalized, career education and experience while remaining committed to protecting the health and well-being of students, faculty and staff as well as that of the communities where we live and work. We continue to monitor the guidance provided by federal, state and local governments as well as public health authorities to comply with any new COVID-19 mandates.
By taking protective measures, we can reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect our college communities.
View a message from President, Francis Felser
Our Bryant & Stratton College Bobcat family is strong, motivated & proud. To protect our community, we’re asking everyone to take the pledge & together stop the spread.
> Take the Pledge
We are committed to ensuring as little interruption as possible to our students’ educational experience. The College is taking several steps to carefully accommodate students and staff. With 19 campuses across the states of New York, Ohio, Virginia and Wisconsin, Bryant & Stratton College has taken many variables into account into planning. These health & safety precautions are based on federal state and local requirements and guidance we have at this time. Plans may change at any time in response to the course of the COVID -19 pandemic, changing public health guidelines, evolving governmental requirements and the College’s assessment of what is necessary to protect our community. We encourage all students to regularly review this page to stay informed about all new updates.
A COVID-19 operations committee has been established across the College to support campus operations, monitor the pandemic and advise on needed protocol adjustments.
Prior to their return, all students will receive a communication from their campus outlining scheduling updates and required safety protocols and practices. Protocols are in place to protect our staff and student community. It is important that you read all communications regarding your campus. There is only so much that any person, organization or government can do to minimize the risk of illness. As we have seen, no community can guarantee all its members will be protected from illness. Our community is no different. Though the College is taking steps to help slow the spread of COVID-19, the responsibility for protecting our community is shared by all members. We each must pledge to do our best to protect ourselves, each other and our community!
