    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 at least 30 days before the start of classes.

    Employee Vaccination Requirements

    All full and part-time faculty and all non-teaching instructional staff (which includes, among others, NTAs, CLTs and those in the HEO series), and personnel in the Executive Compensation Plan must be fully vaccinated in order to remain employed by the University, unless a religious exception, medical exemption or a reasonable accommodation has been granted. At this time, CUNY is defining fully vaccinated as two shots of Moderna or Pfizer, or the single shot of Johnson & Johnson, without booster. This is subject to change.

    Employees needing to request exemptions for religious or medical reasons should contact their College Human Resources Office.
