Updated Spring 2022 Guidance

Read Chancellor's Message Regarding Updated Spring 2022 Guidance>>>

All students attending in-person or hybrid classes or accessing college facilities for any reason must now be fully vaccinated and have uploaded proof of vaccination through CUNYfirst by January 18, 2022. The spring semester begins January 28. Failure to upload proof of vaccination by January 18 will be subject to potential academic withdrawal that could also impact your financial aid and make you ineligible for refunds for the courses. Medical and religious exemptions must be submitted 30 days before the start of classes. All religious exemptions are final and not subject to appeal. Email if you have questions. 

Vaccination Deadline 

Single shot of Johnson & Johnson by January 14

If your vaccine is approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) and you are considered fully vaccinated as specified in the WHO approval, you are fully vaccinated under CUNY policy. You can share proof of vaccination through the CUNYfirst portal. If you've received a vaccine that isn't approved by the FDA or WHO, you should email to determine the appropriate course of action.

The Student Vaccination Mandate applies to students participating in in-person fieldwork and clinical experiences that are a required part of coursework. 

Faculty and staff may upload proof of vaccination through CUNYfirst at any time. 
Spring 2022 all faculty are required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (two dose Pfizer or Moderna regimen, or 1 dose J&J) unless a religious or medial exemption has been approved. Reach out to Human Resources to request religious or medial exemption. university-updates/testing-vax-return-to-work-updates

Students who have received an exemption from CUNY must be tested at a CUNY site no more than 7 days before accessing campus and must show proof of their negative results for the entirety of the semester.

Only CUNY site testing will be accepted. Those who require testing will receive an email (to the address linked to their CUNYfirst account) from Cleared4/safeCircle to book an appointment to be tested. 

Faculty and staff who have yet to submit proof of vaccination, for whom approval of their proof of vaccination is pending, or who have received an exemption must be tested at a CUNY site no more than 7 days before accessing campus and must show proof of their negative results. Only CUNY onsite testing will be accepted.
