COVID-19 Information for Students
Westchester Community College’s COVID-19 plans were developed with recommendations from federal, state, and county health professionals to keep the community safe and prevent the spread of COVID-19. As the situation concerning the pandemic and the vaccine continue to be fluid, note that our plan will remain subject to change due to new information and updated guidance and/or direction from the State of New York and the Governor’s Office.
STUDENT VACCINATION REQUIREMENT
April 14, 2023
Effective Summer 2023, per an updated policy and guidance from SUNY, the COVID-19 vaccine will no longer be required to enroll in in-person classes or access in-person campus services or facilities. SUNY Westchester Community College still strongly encourages students to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19 as well as vaccinations against influenza and monkeypox.
Students enrolled in any program or course or who are participating in a clinical or internship held at a third-party location must continue to comply with all health and safety guidelines, including any vaccination or testing protocols that are in place at the third-party location. Certain employees, students, and volunteers at healthcare facilities, including SUNY healthcare facilities and hospitals, may be subject to mandatory COVID19 vaccination pursuant to relevant regulations and policies.
