MOVING BACK TO CAMPUS

HEALTH SERVICES – Given our concern for the health of our campus community and the high transmissibility of the COVID-19 variant, all students must complete one of the following before they return to campus.

  1. Vaccinated and non-vaccinated students who HAVE NOT tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 90 days must complete a rapid COVID-19 test before they return to campus.

Please note that the rapid COVID-19 test must be taken within a 72- hour window before returning to campus. For example, if you are returning to campus on a Sunday, your test should be taken on the preceding Thursday, Friday or Saturday. Testing sites are available across NYS. Your test must be negative and you must upload the test results to your SUNY Delhi patient portal  before you return to campus. If you live in campus housing, you will also have to show proof of a negative test to your RA before you get your keys. Take a picture of your COVID-19 test results with your student ID and bring that picture with you when you come to move in. 

  • If your rapid COVID-19 test comes back positive, per the Department of Health, you must isolate at home for five days and then wear a mask when around other people for another five days upon your return to campus. Again, proof of a positive test must be uploaded to your SUNY Delhi patient portal and you must contact Health Services to report this positive result.
  1. Vaccinated and non-vaccinated students who HAVE tested positive for COVID-19 within the past 90 days are exempt from the pre-arrival testing requirement. Again, students must submit proof of a positive test through the SUNY Delhi patient portal  before they return to campus and show proof of a positive test to your RA before you get your keys, if you live in University housing.
  • Consistent with the fall semester, and in accordance with NYS and SUNY mandates, all residential students and students coming to campus for any reason (including to work, eat, study, use any campus facility, attend meetings, etc.) must submit documentation of being fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Fully vaccinated, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, says you are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks after your single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. SUNY and SUNY Delhi continue to strongly encourage the COVID-19 booster, when eligibleor approval for a medical or religious exemption by January 14 or 10 days prior to the start of spring classes.

  • Per the mandate, a booster shot is required either before January 31, 2023 OR within a month of becoming eligible to receive a booster which will depend on the date of the final dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

Masking
Masks will still be required for those individuals who are on days five to ten of isolation, at the direction of Health Staff, at the request of faculty/staff in the classroom or offices, and in the Health and Counseling Center. We would highly suggest masks if you are not feeling well with upper respiratory symptoms. Do your part to reduce the spread of germs by wearing a face covering, washing your hands, and maintaining a six-foot space between you and others when not feeling well.

Regardless of vaccination status, students who believe they have symptoms of COVID-19 should go to Health Services in Foreman Hall to be tested.  Diagnostic testing for symptomatic students will be available at Health Services in Foreman Hall during regular business hours.

Any student who is not able to return to campus for any of the above stated reasons should notify their faculty via email.

Any student who is found to be in non-compliance with these requirements will be subject to sanctions outlined in the Student Code of Conduct and may be removed from campus and/or deregistered from classes. Residential students who attempt to access campus without fulfilling the above requirements will not be allowed to move into their residence halls until doing so. The college's standard financial liability and refund policies will apply.

RESIDENCE HALLS and Riverview Townhouses open for returning students on Saturday, January 21, 2023 between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m., and Sunday, January 22, 2023 between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.  No accommodations can be made for early arrivals, so please plan accordingly.  

For those students traveling from NYC, Trailways Buses drop off in the village of Delhi and on campus. Please pay attention to the location when you are booking your tickets.

Residential students must check in at their building’s office when they arrive in order to get their keys and gain card access to the building.

Students are responsible for knowing and abiding by the information contained in this Handbook. The information in the web version of the SUNY Delhi Student Handbook is considered the official version of all documents. Should there be a Handbook with a different version located elsewhere with different content, this web version should be considered the most current and most accurate.

SMOKING POLICY - As per New York State law, smoking is prohibited in all campus buildings and residence halls. As per SUNY Delhi policy, smoking is defined as the use of a lit cigarette, cigar, electronic cigarette or any other form of smoking device.  Smoking is permitted only in designated gazebos and parking lots. Cannabis is not permitted on campus.

BRONCO WEB - To access Bronco Web, go to My Delhi Student Resources and click Bronco Web.

If you have forgotten your PIN, enter your User ID, and then click the ‘Forgot PIN?’ button. You will be asked the security question you initially provided, and you will set a new PIN when you answer the question correctly.

PRINTING CLASS SCHEDULESStudents in Good Academic Standing - All students in good standing may print their official class schedule from the Web after 5 p.m. on Thursday, January 19. It is important to obtain your official class schedule due to class cancellations, time changes, etc. Your schedule may be different from your tentative schedule developed in the fall.   Immediately after printing your official class schedule, check to see if you have a course MISC 9999 on your schedule.  BEWARE!  This is NOT a real course – it means that your schedule is incomplete and needs attention.  See your academic advisor or contact your school office immediately!  If you want to print your schedule, but have forgotten your PIN, follow the steps listed under “Bronco Web.”

For financial aid eligibility, ensure that your courses are required for your current degree program.  If registering for fewer than 12 credits, some or all of your aid eligibility may be impacted by your part-time status.

Students are required to register for full-time enrollment (12+ credits) to be eligible to live on campus.  Certain exemptions may be allowed with the prior approval of Residence Life.
