MOVING BACK TO CAMPUS

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

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.

The purpose of this plan is to help ensure the health and well-being of the SUNY Delhi campus community, while offering students the best college experience possible during the COVID-19 outbreak.

SUNY retains the authority to pause campus activities in case of increased community transmission. SUNY Delhi will continue to monitor COVID-19 on campus and rely on recommendations from SUNY, the local department of health, and the CDC regarding increased health protocols and modifications to in-person learning. As such, this plan is subject to change.

Vaccination Requirement
In accordance with 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 either being fully vaccinated or approved for a medical or religious exemption to the Patient Portal  by August 1, 2022.

For the purposes of this plan, an individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks after a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

Students may apply and qualify for an exemption from these requirements in limited circumstances and with requisite documentation. These exemptions include:

medical exemption (pdf)  for students with documented medical reasons.

religious exemption (pdf)  for students with sincere and genuine religious beliefs against vaccination.

A fully online exemption for students whose classes take place 100% online.

Please note: Returning/continuing students who have already been approved for a religious or medical exemption for 2021-2022 do not need to reapply. Returning/continuing students who had a previous fully online exemption do need to reapply each semester as their schedule and campus reporting requirements may have changed.

Face masks
Face masks are required for anyone on days 5-10 of isolation. Masks are also required at the request of any faculty/staff in a classroom or office, and in the Health and Counseling Center. We highly recommend that anyone who is not feeling well or has upper respiratory symptoms wear a mask.

Student Arrival
All students must complete an at-home COVID-19 test before arriving on campus. The test must be taken within a 72-hour window before arrival on campus. The test must be negative and be uploaded to the student’s SUNY Delhi patient portal  before arrival to campus. Residential students also have to show proof of a negative test to their RA before receiving the keys to their room.  

If a student’s pre-arrival COVID-19 test is positive, the student is required to isolate at home for five days before arriving on campus. Once on campus, they are required to wear a mask around others for another five days. A positive test result must also be uploaded to the SUNY Delhi patient portal and emailed to Health Services at healthservices@delhi.edu. Health Services staff will be in touch with the student.

Any student who tries to access campus facilities for any reason without meeting the vaccination requirements will be subject to sanctions per the Student Code of Conduct.

COVID-19 Testing
SUNY has directed all campuses to conduct surveillance testing for exempted unvaccinated students. SUNY Delhi will conduct monthly testing for exempted unvaccinated students once a month. The testing requirements are subject to change depending on the COVID-19 situation on campus or in the community.

Students who do not comply with mandatory testing will face disciplinary measures up to and including removal from campus and de-registration from classes. The college's standard financial liability and refund policies will apply.

Regardless of vaccination status, students who believe they have symptoms of COVID-19 must go to Health Services to be tested, or conduct an at-home COVID-19 test before attending classes. Diagnostic testing for symptomatic students will be available at Health Services in Foreman Hall during regular business hours.

Quarantine/Isolation
Any student experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, regardless of vaccination status, must contact Health Services to be tested.

Our quarantine/isolation policy is as follows:

Fully vaccinated students who have been exposed to COVID-19 but are asymptomatic are not required to quarantine.

Exempted students who have been exposed to COVID-19 or who test positive, symptomatic or not, are required to isolate at home per instructions of Health Services.

On-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 will be required to isolate at home or in the designated isolation hall.

Off-campus students who test positive for COVID-19 must submit proof of a positive test and isolate at their place of residence until released by Health Services.

RESIDENCE HALLS and Riverview Townhouses open for returning students on Saturday, August 27, 2022, 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, August 28, 2022 between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.  No accommodations can be made for early arrivals, so please plan accordingly.

Students will need to follow all current COVID-19 protocols, including providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test during the residence hall check-in process.

For those students traveling from NYC, Trailways Buses drops 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. 

If you will need to check-in to the residence halls on or after Monday, August 29, please contact Residence Life at reslife@delhi.edu to make arrangements.

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.

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, August 25.
