SUNY begins unenrolling students not complying with vaccine mandate

SUNY has begun unenrolling students not complying with the institution’s vaccine mandate.

Reported by Higher Ed Dive, while 98% of students had been vaccinated prior to the Sept. 27th deadline, that still left 5,903 students at risk of deregistration at The State University of New York.

The takeaway? Will 2% end up being the rough number? The number of students needing to transfer to online-only programs or institutions that don’t have a vaccine mandate? And will that be more or less than the percentage of students an institution would lose from students uncomfortable learning at an institution without a mandate?

May you continue to fight the good enrollment growth fight at your institution today, and we’ll see you again tomorrow.
