Our Plans for Returning to Campus
School of Visual Arts plans to return to an in-person instruction model for the fall 2021 semester, with residence halls open to capacity, though all Art History and Humanities and Science courses will continue to run online. In addition, SVA is planning to offer a limited number of fully online classes for first- and second-year students. For the latest update on the College’s plans for fall 2021, read Provost Christopher J. Cyphers’ June 16 letter to SVA students in the “Archived Notifications” section, below.
On April 26, President David Rhodes announced the SVA COVID-19 vaccination policy for students, faculty and staff. That letter is also in the “Archived Notifications” section at the bottom of the page; see the “Frequently Asked Questions” section for more information.
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.
