COVID-19 Guidelines for Short Academic Programs

The following details COVID-19 guidelines applicable to students accessing a Syracuse University campus or facility for academic purposes for a period that exceeds 24 hours, including online students accessing campus to participate in residency experiences. These guidelines are applicable to all short format courses and immersion experiences held in any domestic Syracuse University location (including New York City, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles).

Schools, colleges and centers hosting such programs are responsible for communicating these guidelines to students, as well as enforcing compliance. The Barnes Center is available to consult and assist.

Vaccination

All students accessing any Syracuse University campus or facility for an academic purpose lasting more than 24 hours are required to provide proof of full vaccination to the University prior to arrival.

Additionally, effective January 18, 2022, all students attending short-format courses who are eligible to receive a booster dose of the COVID-19 vaccine are required to do so and provide proof to the University.
