COVID-19 Vaccine and Booster Requirements
Marist’s Board of Trustees voted to require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students, faculty, and staff attending the College in person. 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. Marist will continue to require members of the Marist community to obtain the full vaccine series and booster to participate in on-campus activities. Additionally, the College will strongly recommend individuals obtain a second booster, once eligible. All members of the Marist community 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 Spring 2023 semester, official documentation for returning students must be uploaded to the patient portal by December 15, 2022. Incoming freshman and transfer students should submit their COVID-19 vaccine documentation along with the other required health forms. Medical or religious vaccine exemption documentation must be uploaded by December 15, 2022.
