(WBNG)-- Binghamton University is set to open its doors to students and faculty after pushing back the start date due to the rise of COVID 19 cases during the holiday break.

In December Governor Hochul announced a mandate stating all SUNY and CUNY students must be vaccinated in order to return back to in-person classes for the spring semester.

The Universities Senior director of media and Public Relations Ryan Yarosh told 12 news that students will not be allowed to attend class or move into their residence hall until proof of a booster shot once they are eligible.

" Were also asking for all students to self-test... that’s testing before departure and then we will have testing available once they arrive in Binghamton and then were going to have continued testing throughout the semester” - Ryan Yarosh

All classes at Binghamton University will be in person. The semester is set to begin on Tuesday, January 25th.
