August 16, 2021: Consequences for vaccination non-compliance

Students

All UB students are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to attend classes in person, pending full FDA approval of the vaccine, which we expect soon. Students who do not meet this requirement by the deadlines will be immediately resigned from all courses with an in-person instructional component and will be assigned a grade of "R" for those courses.  Students are financially liable for all courses unless they have dropped or resigned by published deadlines. Visit the Student Guide Announcements Page for additional details.

Employees

It was announced on July 28, that all New York State employees will be required to get vaccinated for COVID-19 by Labor Day. State employees who do not get vaccinated will be required to be tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis.
