Per SUNY’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy, all students with an on-campus presence are required to be fully-vaccinated. Proof must be submitted to the SUNY Vaccination Verification Application via the College’s mobile app.
In addition to the initial course of vaccination, any student with a regular on campus presence who is eligible for a booster shot must receive one.
Once logged into the MyNCC Portal, you can view the full guidance document. It is also important to note that our plan remains subject to change as new information, guidance and/or direction is received from the State of New York, SUNY and the County of Nassau.
The College has established a clear set of standards and responsibilities for all community members and visitors which are outlined below per vaccination status.
All Nassau Community College employees and students, regardless of vaccination status, are expected to fully comply with the expectations and guidelines in the Returning to the Workplace Guide (employees) and the Guide to Returning to Campus (students).
Note: Individuals are considered fully vaccinated for the initial course of vaccination: (1) two weeks after receiving the second dose in a two dose COVID-19 vaccine series or (2) two weeks after receiving a single dose COVID-19 vaccine.
Individuals are “partially vaccinated” if they received one dose of a two-dose vaccine regimen, or if two weeks has not elapsed following the final dose of either a 2-dose or 1-dose vaccine regimen
Nassau Community College will allow visitors onto the campus. Visitors will be required to complete a screening form and are strongly encouraged to wear masks and maintain social distance while on campus
All reporting is managed electronically through the MyNCC Portal or the NCC mobile app.

The NCC COVID-19 Compliance Corner is an option for making a confidential report online to help individuals identify and address compliance concerns regarding COVID-19.
This includes concerns related to compliance with COVID-19 health and safety standards (e.g., compliance with social distancing, personal protective equipment, and cleaning and disinfecting standards). An individual may provide their name and contact information, or may chose to remain anonymous. Individuals may still report their concerns through the traditional reporting channels. Creating and maintaining an environment that maintains health and safety during this unprecedented time will be a collaborative effort and we need your help.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic creates a fluid situation that may require unexpected changes in the College’s response. Developments in scientific knowledge, public health guidance, or laws and regulations may mean SUNY and NCC have to make changes to institutional rules and procedures. We will keep the College community informed of new developments.
