Press release from SUNY Cortland.

SUNY Cortland will require all students planning to live on campus during the Fall 2021 semester to be vaccinated against COVID-19 before the start of the semester. There will be few and limited exceptions for approved medical and religious reasons.

This commitment to health and safety will allow a return to full campus academic, athletic, recreational and social activities during the upcoming semester.

Students will be able to submit proof of vaccination online through myRedDragon in early August. More details on that process will be shared later.

The university’s Fall 2021 guidance is now available online. This guidance answers questions about vaccination requirements for students and campus policies that will be in place this fall. The webpage will be updated regularly and is subject to change if SUNY Cortland experiences an increase in the rate of infections on campus or in the community.

President Erik J. Bitterbaum shared messages to the campus community about vaccinations on July 13 and July 19.
