Student Code of Conduct Appendix 11

Student Code of Conduct Appendix 11

Effective August 1, 2020, updated October 1, 2020

This agreement makes clear the expectation that we all commit to a strong regimen of personal hygiene and responsibility that protects individuals and the community. In turn, the College has developed an intense sanitizing and cleaning plan for classrooms, residence halls, and other common spaces.  

Signage will be posted across campus to encourage and reinforce the message of personal responsibility to protect the health and safety of the community. Please attend to the expectations displayed on these signs and encourage others to join you. 

The College reserves the right to update and make edits to this document to be in line with the guidance that comes from local, state, and national public health agencies as well as government officials. All updates to the document will be clearly noted with the date and posted on the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities website. This document supersedes any previous policies or practices.

  • Students need to attest to the below conditions 14-days before arrival and again at check-in, anyone who fails to attest to the below conditions will be denied occupancy to the residence halls until cleared. No refunds will be given, except for the ones outlined in the Student Handbook: 
    • They have not tested positive for the coronavirus, to the best of their knowledge they have not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.
    • They have not experienced any symptoms of the covid-19, no member of their immediate household or whom they have been in regular contact have experienced symptoms of the coronavirus/covid-19
  • Students will report to Student Health Services (Foreman Hall) immediately if they have been exposed to the coronavirus or person(s) exhibiting covid-19 symptoms.
  • Students must comply with Campus Health Protocols for attending and obtaining diagnostic or surveillance COVID-19 testing under published protocol.
  • Students will abide by all guidelines and policies of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and New York State. This includes but not limited to travel bans and restrictions, personal and public hygiene, and limiting the spread of coronavirus.
  • Students are strongly encouraged to remain on campus once they arrive for the semester. If a student leaves campus, they agree to not return to campus if they have knowledge of exposure to coronavirus/covid-19. They may not return to campus for at least 14-days from the date of exposure or the cessation of symptoms. Students must report any exposures/symptoms to Student Health Services (Foreman Hall) immediately.
  • No outside guest is permitted on campus. This includes day and overnight visitors in the residence halls. To aid in identification all SUNY Delhi students must visibly wear their valid student ID when on campus and in common spaces. Authorized guests who are on-campus residents socializing in a room, suite or townhouse not their own are limited to one person per room occupant.
  • Large group gatherings are prohibited. Smaller groups of 10 or less may be permitted when personal distancing and safety guidelines are followed. Some spaces and venues will be closed or entrance restricted to prevent crowding.
  • Students must follow all guidelines for personal distancing and safety, including:
    • Wear a face covering when in the presence of others
    • Where possible allow for 6 feet of personal distancing between others
    • Use the SUNY Delhi student screening application daily
    • Proper handwashing and personal hygiene
    • Report illness to Student Health Services immediately.
    • Do not attend classes or campus functions if you are not feeling well or experience symptoms of Covid-19. Special meal plan options including pre-order and delivery can be used for meals.
    • Face covering must be worn prior to entering a building and continued in classrooms, offices and all common areas such as elevators, lobby, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and when traveling around the building. Face coverings do not need to be worn while in your assigned residence hall room when alone or in the presence of your roommate.
    • Do not voluntarily travel to any location to which New York State has banned or restricted travel
  • Space in the residence halls will be set aside for quarantine/isolation space for students living on campus. In accordance with recommendations from SUNY System, students who test positive for Covid-19 will be sent home via private transportation, unless they are not able to travel home (i.e. international students) or do not feel safe returning home. Students who are unable to travel home or do not feel safe returning home will be assigned to the designated Q/I spaces in collaboration with Campus Health Services and the local Public Health department. Food delivery options through Campus Dining Services will be implemented.
