Sanctions for Student Violations Related to COVID-19
Last fall, SUNY implemented a COVID-19 sanctioning policy to help SUNY balance the need to protect the public health of students, faculty, staff and community members, with students’ rights to remain within the educational environment.
The policy, which remains in effect, is an important tool that SUNY colleges use to ensure that students take steps necessary for their own safety and the safety of others, or face consequences. It defines sanctions specifically related to:
• COVID-positive intentional violations;
• failure to self-isolate or quarantine;
• prohibited gatherings;
• face mask and social distancing requirements;
• contact tracing; and
•failure to comply with campus health protocols.
