Starting this fall, Schenectady County Community College will be offering classes on the 2nd floor of the Albany County building in downtown Albany, officials said today.
Details of the partnership are still being worked out between the county and the college regarding a lease, and the college has not yet decided on the courses that will be taught in the 10,000 square foot space, which is currently used for the offices of the county executive. About 1,000 students are expected to take classes in the space.
While parking will be available at the nearby Albany Hilton and Times Union Center parking garages, registered community college students will qualify for free transportation through CDTA. County Executive Dan McCoy noted at today’s press conference that it takes about 20 minutes to get from SCCC to downtown Albany, and there is a bus stop just out front of the 112 State St. county building where classes will be held.
