UPDATE: MSMC Winter Sessions Running as Scheduled
UPDATE 1/6/2023: MSMC has shared that Winter Courses at the college are back up and running as of January 5 with Spring 2023 classes expected to run as scheduled.
Over the past several years, college students especially, along with K-12 students, have learned to adjust to ever-changing classroom structures. During the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the academic years that followed, students became accustomed to terminologies like hybrid courses and virtual classrooms.
With that in mind, a heavy focus during the past few years has been on cyber safety and security.
Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh had originally shared that the Winter intersession classes had initially been postponed, indefinitely following a cyber security incident.
Upon logging onto the Mount Saint Mary College official website, a message was shared,
Please note that we are working to resolve current technical difficulties with email, the MyMSMC portal, and library database access as quickly as possible.
Winter interim session classes are postponed, with the exception of NUR-5215. Read more here.
Upon entering the website, it is explained that the college discovered a cybersecurity incident that has impacted the 'network environment.' They went on to explain that the college was working with a team of 'forensic experts to fully understand the extent and implications of this incident and to restore operations within a safe and remediated network environment.'
MSMC shared with us the great news that Winter Intersession courses are now back up and running along with the coming Spring 2023 semester! Interim session classes are held during the time between the fall and spring academic semesters.
