For the Spring 2022 semester, the vast majority of CUNY courses will be in-person. Students taking in-person or hybrid courses must be fully vaccinated when classes begin, meaning unvaccinated students will be withdrawn before classes begin if they do not meet the below guidelines and deadlines:

  • If your vaccination documents are already approved in CUNYfirst, you do not need to re-submit them.
  • If you are fully vaccinated but have not uploaded proof in CUNYfirst because all of your classes are currently remote, don’t wait! Do it today and you’ll be ready to visit campus or take an in-person class.
  • All students (except those with approved exemptions or exceptions) must be fully vaccinated in order to enter any CUNY facility.
  • Medical and religious exemptions must be submitted 30 days before the start of classes.
  • Students will be able to enroll for in-person/hybrid classes without providing proof of vaccination at the time of enrollment — but will need to be fully vaccinated and their documents approved before the beginning of classes.
