Coming to Campus

NOTE: Individuals should not report to campus if they are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, regardless of vaccination status.

Guidance for Symptoms and Exposure

Vaccination Policies

Hudson Valley Community College must comply with all SUNY COVID-19 policies. SUNY no longer requires students to be vaccinated for COVID-19, however, all members of the campus community are strongly encouraged to do so, and to stay up to date on boosters as recommended by the CDC in order to protect themselves and others. Those who have received their vaccines and/or boosters are asked to continue to submit their updated vaccination records in order to ensure accurate recordkeeping.

NOTE: All students enrolled in an applied learning experience, program or course requiring a clinical or internship will still be required to comply with their host site policies, including any vaccination or testing protocols. This applies to students in any academic program and all levels of clinical and allied health training.

Masks and Social Distancing

The use of masks on campus at Hudson Valley is optional. Although mask usage is not mandated, it remains strongly encouraged, and may be required in certain situations (i.e., for those engaged in clinical coursework where close personal contact is required).

Social distancing is recommended where possible, however instructional spaces are open to full capacity as necessary.


Any incidents of non-compliance to these requirements will be handled through the college’s judicial process for students and Human Resources for employees.
