A Message to December Graduates and their Guests:
Farmingdale State College will require all students and all guests attending its upcoming
winter commencement exercises to provide valid proof of a COVID vaccine or proof of
a negative COVID test with the result received within 72 hours of the commencement
event they are attending. The College’s indoor masking requirement remains in effect.
Factors leading to this decision include Governor Hochul’s recent declaration of a
state of emergency, an increase in the percentage of positive tests on Long Island
and beyond, and the discovery of a new variant of COVID.
We are implementing this requirement to assure the safest possible event for graduates,
their guests, and college staff.
Commencement exercises for Spring 2020 Graduates, Winter 2020 Graduates, and Spring
2021 Graduates will be held on Sunday, December 19. Commencement exercises for the
Winter 2021 class will be held on December 21.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation and we look forward to
seeing our graduates and their guests at the commencement events.
