COVID Updates

Starting May 2023, the College no longer requires COVID-19 vaccinations. Everyone is strongly encouraged to get vaccinated and stay up to date, and to provide this information to the College.  We will continue to monitor Federal, State of New York, and the City's guidance on this issue and infection trends, and respond as needed.

Academic Year 2023-24

New students may submit documentation of COVID-19 vaccination with the other required health records and forms. See Required Forms | Health Services | Inside Manhattan College

Resident Students

The College requires that anyone living in the residence halls be responsible for their own isolation costs. CDC current isolation rules will apply.

We encourage all students to test when experiencing symptoms with a COVID home antigen kit. Please call Health Services for an appointment for evaluation.


Masks are not required indoors or outdoors. Faculty can encourage, not require, masks in their classroom. Course syllabus should have information if the Faculty encourages wearing a mask.
