Baruch College and The City University of New York continue to promote policies that protect the health, well-being, and safety of the community while honoring our mission to support students’ academic momentum and success. These policies are explained in detail at CUNY’s coronavirus web hub. Key elements are summarized below.
For the Spring 2023 term, the majority of CUNY courses are in-person. CUNY mandates that students taking in-person and/or hybrid classes must have up-to-date vaccination status when classes begin. Further, all students taking in-person or hybrid classes must upload proof of that status to CUNYfirst at least ten (10) days before classes begin.
