COVID-19 Safety Information page updates


Dear campus community,

I want to let you know that the university has made some important updates to the COVID-19 Safety Information page in advance of the 2022-23 academic year.

Policies to note include:

  • All students must comply with SUNY system’s vaccination mandate. This means students must be fully vaccinated OR have an approved medical or religious exemption OR sign an attestation form if they are fully remote and will not physically be present on campus during the semester.
  • SUNY Cortland strongly recommends, but will not require, a booster dose for students.
  • Students who have received a medical or religious exemption must participate in weekly surveillance testing. These students will be allowed to use the Student Life Center, participate in performances, ensembles, intercollegiate athletics, club sports and intramurals.
  • All students are strongly encouraged to take a rapid antigen test before they arrive for the Fall 2022 semester.

Additional information for students and employees is available on the COVID-19 Safety Information page.

This page will be continuously updated, and any future policy changes will also be communicated by email. The university will work with partners from the state Department of Health, the State University of New York and the Cortland County Health Department to monitor the situation and adapt to new circumstances.

Thank you for your attention and for doing your part to keep SUNY Cortland safe. Have a wonderful summer break.



All the best,


Erik J. Bitterbaum
