Marist’s Board of Trustees voted to require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students, faculty, and staff  attending the College in person in academic year 2021-22. Based on guidance from our Medical Advisory Group, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and New York State, Marist is continuing this requirement for 2022-23 academic year. All members of the Marist College community must be up-to-date with their COVID-19 vaccinations, as defined by the CDC, to participate in on-campus activities, and must adhere to this policy by uploading their proof of vaccination and booster dose(s) to the Marist Health Services Patient Portal. Individuals who were previously approved for a medical or religious exemption from the COVID-19 vaccine requirement will need to renew their exemptions for the upcoming academic year. Please see the COVID-19 vaccine exemption page for additional information.

For the Summer 2022 term, official documentation must be uploaded to the patient portal no later than May 15, 2022. Medical or religious vaccine exemption documentation must be uploaded between May 1, 2022 and May 15, 2022.
