COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination Process

Proof of Vaccination

To complete the COVID-19 Proof of Vaccination Process:


Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself against COVID-19.

All students – undergraduate, graduate and professional – were required to be vaccinated or obtain a medial or religious exemption prior to the start of the academic year. These rules will remain in place for all new or transfer students arriving at the start of the Spring 2022 semester.

In September 2021, President Biden issued an executive order that requires that all employees of certain contractors that do business with the federal government be vaccinated, unless exempt for medical or religious reasons. The university has numerous federal contracts that are covered by the provisions in the executive order. Because of the scope of the executive order, the university will require all employees, whether they work on campus in Ithaca, Geneva, New York City, or any other location, to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by December 8, or to have obtained a university-approved medical or religious exemption.
