Although the calendar still says summer, it’s time to start getting ready for the cool, crisp days of autumn and your Fall semester classes ahead.
Below you will find important details about the upcoming Fall semester. Additional information will be added as we move closer to September, so please be sure to keep an eye out for updates.
The health and wellness of our College community remains our greatest priority. Accordingly, although New York State has removed some of its COVID restrictions, we have not relaxed our protocols on campus. With the Delta variant now proving to be a challenge, keeping our guard up remains the right thing to do.
Effective September 9th with the start of classes, we are requiring all who come to campus on a regular basis to be vaccinated. This includes students, staff, and faculty.
We recognize that there may be some people who are hesitant about getting vaccinated.
Some exceptions may be made on a case by case basis. More information will be made available shortly for those who would like to request a special accommodation. In the interim, please see here.
Masks/face coverings are required in all public spaces on campus. Social distancing recommendations, hand-sanitizing stations and plexiglass shields remain in place.
