Mandatory Weekly Testing for Unvaccinated Students and Employees
Those who do not provide FIT Health Services with proof of vaccination are required to comply with weekly COVID-19 testing. A weekly negative COVID-19 PCR test result is necessary in order to attend classes or to work.
The college no longer offers weekly testing on campus. Employees and students will need to find their own testing location. Testing should be done outside of work/class hours. Please note that depending on where the test is obtained, there may be a fee or copay that will need to be submitted to insurance for reimbursement, if available.
Here are some COVID-19 testing facilities near FIT:
Northwell GoHealth Urgent Care in Chelsea, 225 W. 23rd St., (212) 897-1994

Failure to Test
Students: Failure to comply with this SUNY-wide mandate will result in disciplinary action outlined in FIT’s Code of Student Conduct.
Employees: If weekly test results are not provided, unvaccinated individuals will
not be permitted access to campus and will not be permitted to work remotely (unless
granted an accommodation under the ADA). You would need to charge paid time off leave
banks if you are not permitted access to campus. The requirement of weekly testing
for unvaccinated employees is a SUNY-wide mandate with which we must demonstrate compliance.
Free Vaccinations on Campus
Moderna COVID-19 vaccines are available on campus to employees and students. Log in to the FIT Health Services Portal to schedule an appointment. Answers to frequently asked questions about vaccines can be found on the SUNY Know Your Vax site.
If you opt to be vaccinated at FIT, you will be able to work/take classes on campus
while you are in between doses and not yet fully vaccinated, provided that you adhere to required health and safety protocols set forth by the
college and that you continue to submit a weekly negative COVID-19 PCR test result.
FIT Health Services, within the Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success (EMSS), is responsible for all aspects of COVID-19 testing protocols. Additionally, training of staff assisting with the intake and data collection process, as well as the administrative details involved with managing the process, flow, and communication details, will be conducted by Health Services in concert with Residential Life and Human Resources.
