State University of New York Chancellor Kristina Johnson is stepping down after just three years at the helm to take the top job at Ohio State University, sources told The Post Tuesday.

Her resignation as the $560,000 head of the sprawling 64-college system is expected to be made official on Wednesday, sources said.

Robert Megna, a former state budget director to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, is expected to fill in as interim SUNY chancellor, sources said. He is currently SUNY’s chief operating officer.

Her departure comes at a critical time – as SUNY grapples with the coronavirus pandemic and expected budget cuts. Students who lived on campus were sent home this spring and took classes and exams remotely to help contain the virus – and it’s unclear whether students will return to the campus for classes in the fall.

Johnson was hired in 2017 with much fanfare. She is an engineer, inventor and former top US Energy Department official in the Obama administration.
