CUNY mandates all students taking in-person and hybrid classes get vaccinated and upload proof of vaccination in CUNYfirst.
For the Fall 2022 semester, the majority of CUNY courses will be in-person. Students taking in-person or hybrid courses must be fully vaccinated when classes begin. Further, all students taking in-person or hybrid classes must upload proof of that status to CUNYfirst by ten (10) days before classes begin. Additional guidelines and deadlines below:
- If your vaccination documents are already approved in CUNYfirst, you do not need to re-submit them, but they must include proof of being up-to-date.
- All students registering for a fully in-person or hybrid class for the 2022 Fall term, and thereafter, must be fully vaccinated unless they have been granted a religious exception or medical exemption to the vaccine. Although booster shots are not required for course registration at this time, we strongly encourage all students to be up-to-date on their related booster shots.
- The deadline to submit a religious exception or medical exemption for the Fall ’22 semester is July 25, 2022. Late submissions will be considered, but the deadline is in place to ensure that anyone denied will have ample time to receive the vaccine before the start of the semester.
