Dr. Mike Scales, president of Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary in New York City, recently announced that those institutions of higher learning are planning to open their doors for the upcoming fall semester.

“It is our intent for the Nyack College campus to be fully open for the fall 2020 semester,” Scales said on the school’s website. “We will comply with all state and city statutes that affect how we operate. New York State is moving through its plan to permit reopening in phases and by regions. Obviously, the sequencing of this plan is playing a defining role in our fall operations. As we progress through the State’s plan for reopening, we will make more specific decisions.”

Dr. Scales assured staff and prospective and incoming students that all steps were being taken to make the campus safe, but also announced that each class offered by Nyack College and Alliance Theological Seminary (ATS) would include a streaming option for students who may not be comfortable returning to a lecture hall.

Nyack College was established by its founder, Dr. A. B. Simpson, in New York City in 1882. In the fall of 2019, Nyack College and ATS moved all programs to its Manhattan campus after operating for many years at its Rockland County location.

“This spring 2020 semester was unlike any we have ever seen. I am proud of how our community responded to this challenge,” Scales said. “The fall 2020 semester will likely have its own share of challenges to which we must respond. I can assure you we will be ready.”
