COVID-19—Alumni Benefits and Campus Access Policies


As we consider the evolving health crisis and the College’s operational status, we are committed to providing ongoing access to alumni benefits, resources and programming as best as possible during this unique time. But out of necessity, restrictions apply.


Campus Access

  • Alumni are not allowed access to campus unless explicit permission has been granted and a special arrangement has been coordinated in advance with a specific department. Such access is subject to change, per evolving guidelines and regulations. Alumni must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination and will be required to fill out a visitor check-in form with security.

SVA Libraries

  • Under normal circumstances, SVA alumni enjoy access to the SVA Libraries after graduation. But in order to prioritize our spaces for current students and faculty and maintain a safe environment, alumni and Continuing Education student access is paused until further notice.

Alumni ID Cards

  • Processing of alumni ID cards also remains suspended until further notice.


SVA’s plans for a safe reopening have been created by academic and administrative leadership in accordance with New York State guidelines, as well as the guidance of federal and local health authorities.
