Students must be in compliance with SUNY’s COVID-19 vaccination requirement for the spring semester. A booster is also now required.
All unvaccinated or partially vaccinated students who have not received an official exemption due to medical reasons, religious beliefs, or as a fully remote student as described on the COVID-19 Immunization Requirements website must become vaccinated and submit proof of vaccination before they are able to register for classes.
*NEW* booster requirement. All students who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 are required to obtain a booster and submit documentation. This booster requirement must be met by January 31, 2022. If you are not yet eligible to receive a booster by January 31, you must obtain your booster and submit your documentation within one week of becoming eligible.
Students who fail to meet their booster deadline will be de-registered from their in-person courses.
Students are financially liable for all courses unless they have dropped or resigned by published deadlines. This applies to students who are dropped from courses with in-person instructional components due to non-compliance with the COVID-19 vaccination requirement. Please refer to Student Accounts Financial Liability Deadline site for detailed information on tuition and fee liability deadlines and dates for all course sessions.
We cannot stress enough that UB’s vaccination and booster mandate is a strict policy with serious repercussions, put in place for the health and safety of our campus community. Submit proof of vaccination and booster now by following instructions on the COVID-19 Immunization Requirements website.
Vaccines are shown to be safe and effective. They are free of charge and readily available. Please make note of the urgency of the booster deadline. More information about where to get vaccinated is available here.
