Farmingdale State College has been remarkably successful in dealing with the ongoing public health crisis. We continue to ask for your cooperation to safely proceed with a more normal and extensive campus experience. COVID-19 vaccine booster shots and regular testing are effective ways to contain Coronavirus transmission and protect your fellow students. Please review the COVID requirements that are implemented at FSC for the Spring 2023 semester.

Vaccine Mandate

All students that have an on-campus presence or plan to use campus facilities at minimum must be fully vaccinated with an initial COVID-19 vaccination series.

Students participating in applied learning experiences will be required to comply with the vaccination policies of their host site. This includes all levels of clinical and allied health training and educator preparation.

All students who need to provide proof of vaccination status, please use the COVID Vaccine Upload Form.

Students who have recently tested positive for COVID-19 may receive a medical extension of up to 90 days to comply with the vaccination requirements. With appropriate documentation, please use this form to request a temporary medical accommodation.

Vaccine Verification & Waiver

    • Medical Exemption: Medical Exemptions must come from a licensed healthcare provider (MD, DO, NP, PA).
    • Religious Exemption: Students who hold genuine religious beliefs that are contrary to COVID-19 vaccination fill out a religious waiver. The student must explain how receiving the COVID-19 vaccination conflicts with the student’s deeply held religious belief or practice. 
    • If you have questions, please email 

COVID Positive

If you test positive for COVID, please upload your positive COVID result. The Health and Wellness Center will contact students for information and guidance after receiving the upload.
