Our Plans for Returning to Campus
School of Visual Arts plans to return to in-person instruction in the fall for the 2021-2022 academic year, with some courses continuing to run online. A fully online curriculum will be offered for those students who are unable to return to New York City. Read “Back to SVA: What to Expect When You Return,” and read Provost Christopher J.

On April 26, President David Rhodes announced the COVID-19 vaccination policy for students, faculty and staff. Read his letter in the “Archived Notifications” section at the bottom of the page and see the "Frequently Asked Questions" section for more information. Our plans for a safe reopening have been created by SVA’s academic and administrative leadership in accordance with New York State, as well as the guidance of federal, state and local health authorities.
For the current academic year, academic instruction has been fully online. Our campus, residence halls, administrative offices and some academic spaces are open at a reduced capacity, adhering to the latest health and safety protocols.
