COVID-19 Vaccine Policy

Spring 2023

What you need to know

  1. The SUNY Student COVID-19 Vaccine Policy (the “Policy”) remains in effect and requires all students who will have a physical presence on campus to provide evidence of, at minimum, the initial course of COVID vaccinations. Pursuant to the Policy, students are considered fully vaccinated for the initial course of vaccination: (1) two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or (2) two weeks after receiving a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
  2. Proof of vaccination is required BEFORE a student arrives on campus.
  3. Medical and religious exemptions are available on a very limited basis and are required BEFORE January 20, 2023.
  4. Students who are taking ONLY fully remote/online classes may be exempt from the Policy if they are not regularly on campus (more than once per week).
  5. Students who are not compliant with the above Policy will be withdrawn from all of their on-campus classes.

Sign up for your Health Portal (you will need your College ID Number) and upload proof of COVID-19 vaccine and other required vaccines by visiting the Health Portal.
