Marymount Manhattan College requires all faculty, staff, and students who are present on campus to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
If you are not fully vaccinated, you must provide an application stating a medical, religious, or other reason for exemption from vaccination, subject to approval by the College’s Health and Safety team.
The vaccine booster is required for all students, faculty, and staff who are eligible.
COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective. Current research shows that vaccination against COVID-19 protects individuals from severe or symptomatic infection, reduces asymptomatic infection, and potentially limits transmission of the virus.

MMC strongly encourages international students to receive COVID-19 vaccines that are approved by the FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) or the WHO (World Health Organization). If FDA/WHO-approved vaccinations are unavailable, international students should seek guidance from their national health services. For those who need assistance in finding a vaccination to meet MMC’s requirement, check out the resources below or contact email@example.com.
The widespread availability of vaccines will allow for most people to receive the vaccine locally or in their home communities. For those who need assistance in finding a vaccination site or an appointment, check out the resources below or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students, faculty, and staff may fill out an application for exemption to the vaccination requirement for medical, religious, or other reasons. Students who do not participate in face-to-face instruction, and who do not wish to access MMC facilities, will not need to provide proof of vaccination or seek an exemption.
The submission form is available here. Vaccination data will be used only to mitigate the impacts of COVID at MMC facilities and to comply with federal and local guidelines. All vaccination data will be kept confidential.
Vaccination status will be kept strictly confidential. Only select members of the Health and Safety team will have information about an individual’s vaccination status. This information will not be shared with other faculty, staff, or students.
