SUNY Cortland, in collaboration with SUNY System Administration and the Cortland County Health Department, has developed a testing and departure plan to allow most of our students to return home safely by Thanksgiving. SUNY Cortland will continue remote learning through the end of the semester and will provide a process for students to leave campus starting Nov. 2 if they choose. The campus is not closing and will continue to provide services to students as originally scheduled.
Students who choose to leave before Nov. 20-23 should consult this webpage to make sure they adhere to the appropriate testing and residence-hall process. All students wishing to return home who use on-campus facilities in any capacity must:
This page will be updated frequently. Check back for important updates.
Note: Sign-up forms close at midnight the night before the scheduled date. More testing dates will be added soon.
Students who have tested at an acceptable off-campus provider must submit a PDF of a clearly legible negative test result. After results are reviewed by Student Health Service staff, students will receive an email indicating that they are cleared to request to depart from campus and will be provided a departure time frame.
