COVID Response

With the recent FDA approval of the Pfizer COVID vaccine, a student vaccination mandate is now a requirement for all SUNY campuses. All students with at least one in-person class or who come to campus for any purpose must provide proof of receiving a full vaccination series. This includes, both doses of either Pfizer or Moderna or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine at the time of registration. Information about medical and religious exemptions can be found at this link: https://www.sunysccc.edu/Current-Students/Return-to-Campus.html. Please note, vaccinated students are required to complete COVID pool-testing monthly. 

Effective August 30, 2021, and until further notice, face masks are required in all in-person classes at all SUNY Schenectady locations. This policy aligns with masking requirements at all Schenectady County buildings, and complies with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendation of universal indoor masking for all faculty, staff, students, and visitors to colleges, regardless of vaccination status.

The COVID-19 pandemic prompts the need for this additional required syllabus statement. While a temporary mandate, and although no end date has been established, this policy remains in effect "until further notice."

This mandatory mask policy applies to all instructors and students and is key to safely maintaining in-person teaching and learning at SUNY Schenectady, and is detailed completely in the Student Code of Conduct.

The following rules apply:

  • The required mask must fully cover both one’s nose and mouth.
  • Students who attempt to enter a classroom without wearing masks will be asked by the instructor to put on their masks prior to
  • Students who remove their masks during a class session will be asked by the instructor to resume wearing their
  • Students and instructors may remove their masks briefly to take a sip of water but should replace masks The consumption of food will not be permitted.

Students who do not comply with the expectation that they wear a mask in accordance with the College-wide face mask requirement may be subject to disciplinary actions per the rules, regulations, and policies of SUNY Schenectady, including but not limited to those outlined in the Student Handbook. Non-compliance with this policy may result in disciplinary action, up to and including any of the following:

  • dismissal from the course (s)
  • dismissal from the College.
