SUNY COVID-19 Guidance for Fall 2023

The SUNY community has done an extraordinary job of keeping our campuses safe over the course of the pandemic. Now more than ever, we must continue to maintain safe conditions in order to protect and advance our robust academic and residential experiences for our students.

Beginning with Summer 2023 semester, the COVID-19 vaccine will no longer be mandated for students to attend SUNY’s 64 colleges and universities. Full details are available in the news release about this decision.


Fully Vaccinated? Now It’s Time to Get Boosted.

Any SUNY student with a regular on-campus presence (i.e., not fully remote for the semester) who is eligible for a booster shot is encouraged to receive one for the Fall 2023 semester. The boosters help provide critical protection against COVID-19 and its variants.
