Immunization Documentation

New York State law requires the College to have your immunization documentation prior to the first day of classes. Students who have not submitted any proof of immunity against Measles, Mumps or Rubella are considered non-compliant and will not be allowed to attend classes after 30 days (for residents of the State of New York) or after 45 days (for out-of-state-residents). The College is obligated to exclude non-compliant students and will administratively withdraw these students from classes on the 30th day (for NY residents) and 45th day (for out-of-state-residents) from the first day of classes. For details on the Immunization process please visit the Immunization page.
