COVID-19 Resources/Fall 2021 FAQs

Welcome to SUNY Ulster for the Fall 2021 semester.  Here are FAQs for safe protocols on campus as we support the learning efforts of our students and community.

With the FDA’s full approval of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine on August 23, 2021, the state-mandated directive for all students to be vaccinated is now in place for all SUNY campuses. 
SUNY Ulster is strongly encouraging vaccinations for all other members of our community as well as we continue our commitment to providing a safe learning environment for our students, faculty, staff, and community.
Pursuant to SUNY policy, there is an up to 35-day grace period to allow students to provide proof of vaccination or have an approved COVID-19 religious or medical exemption on file with the College.

SUNY Ulster Students have until September 28, 2021, to receive both doses of Pfizer or Moderna or the one-dose Johnson and Johnson vaccination.

If you choose not to obtain your second dose or one-shot (J & J) by September 28, 2021:

  • you will not be able to come to campus for any reason, including attending classes and/or accessing any on-campus service or resource.
  • you will be administratively withdrawn effective September 28, 2021.
  • you will not be able to get a refund as of September 28, 2021 SUNY Ulster’s approved 2021-2022 Tuition and Refund 

PLEASE NOTE: All classes beginning the week of August 23, 2021, are eligible for 100% refund of tuition and fees for the Fall 2021 semester for the first week of classes only through midnight of August 29, 2021.
