Vaccine Appointment Update

New York State has opened all mass vaccination sites to walk-in appointments. Due to this updated availability, FSC will no longer be assisting with vaccine appointments. Please see the Am I Eligible Website for further details. 

FALL 2021

Farmingdale State College regularly receives questions about its plans for the fall 2021 term. We are pleased to report that FSC anticipates that at least three-quarters of its courses will have a face-to-face component in fall 2021. This will permit nearly all of our students to have a substantial on-campus academic experience in classes and labs. The College will do this while meeting or exceeding SUNY and NYS public health requirements. Farmingdale also expects to significantly increase its residence hall occupancy with priority given to students who live 50 miles from campus, or are enrolled in specific academic programs that are delivered largely or exclusively on campus. Our current plan is to accommodate approximately 400 residential students in the fall term. The College reserves the right to withdraw offers for housing based on the need to respond to COVID healthcare protocols.

To date, Farmingdale has had one of SUNY's most successful plans for addressing the COVID emergency. We are confident in our capacity to safely return to a high level of on-campus instruction in the fall, complete with health and safety protocols.


As we return to campus in spring 2021, SUNY and Farmingdale State College's priority is our campus community's health and safety, including its students, faculty, and staff. The best way to maintain the safest environment possible throughout 2021 and beyond is for each of us to take steps to minimize the risks, not only for ourselves but for all members of the Farmingdale community.

The FSC Spring 2021 Reopening Plan includes the following steps: 

  • Wearing face coverings (masks)
  • Hand washing
  • Social distancing
  • Participating in testing and tracing
  • Completing daily screenings
  • Being mindful of our surroundings and the impact we have

Any of us alone can spread this disease and cause harm to others. But all of us can build a safe and healthy community where educational success is possible.
