COVID-19 Response Plans and Updates

Pursuant to recent guidance provided by the NYS Department of Health, NYS Governor's Office of Employee Relations and SUNY System, recent updates have been made to SUNY Morrisville's COVID-19 healthy and safety guidelines. Learn more about our health and safety guidelines.

SUNY Morrisville is all in for Fall 2021! Fall classes will begin August 23.

Per New York State guidance, the State University of New York (SUNY) will require that all in-person students are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before returning for the Fall 2021 semester at all 64 campuses within the SUNY system. This requirement remains contingent on final approval of the COVID-19 vaccines by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in addition to final approval by the SUNY Board of Trustees. The vaccines are currently approved for emergency authorization use only. We do not have any additional information at this time and await further guidance from SUNY and New York State.

We highly encourage students to get vaccinated as soon as possible to help us reopen normally this fall and keep the campus community safe. If you would like to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine, SUNY has provided many helpful facts and resources via its “Know Your Vax” website. A Know Your Vax video playlist also is available on YouTube and features PSAs by SUNY students, medical experts and community leaders.

We currently do not have any additional information regarding the vaccine requirement or exemptions. However, please be sure to continue to regularly check the college website and your email throughout the summer, as any new information about vaccine requirement policies, procedures and possible exemptions will be communicated to all students once updates become available.


SUNY Morrisville returned to in-person learning and living again in Spring 2021, with classes taught through a mix of in-person or face-to-face (F2F) and remote (online) learning, based on parameters set by the State University of New York (SUNY) Administration. Thank you for the vital role you played in our successful return to campus for the Fall 2020 semester, which helped keep our infection rate down and has allowed us to continue with in-person learning this spring.

We continue to take as many sensible steps as we can to protect the health and safety of students, faculty, staff, visitors and our surrounding communities, while also providing the critical applied learning and teaching that is SUNY Morrisville’s mission.
