COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

NYU will require COVID-19 vaccinations for all students returning to campus in New York City and other US sites for the Fall 2021 semester, while accommodating medical and religious exemptions. We expect that this requirement will also extend to students who are planning on studying away this fall.

All students who get vaccinated off campus must upload their vaccination information. For anyone vaccinated through the on-campus vaccination program, we will maintain records of your COVID-19 vaccination automatically.
