Current Vaccination Requirements

  • Employees who are coming to campus will need to submit proof they have received a complete COVID-19 vaccination AND a COVID-19 booster (if they are eligible for a booster) by April 6
      • There is no need to resubmit proof of your original vaccination if you have already done so for fall or winter.
      • Detailed instructions for submitting proof of your booster will be posted on the district Human Resources website.
  • Students must submit vaccination proof (or obtain an exemption) before they can register for any on-campus classes in spring quarter. 
      • Students who have already submitted proof of vaccination for fall or winter do not need to submit again in order to register for spring classes.
      • However, students who are coming to campus will also be required to upload proof they have received a COVID-19 booster (if they are eligible for a booster) before classes begin on April 6.
      • If a student is eligible for a booster and does not submit proof they have received one by the April 6 deadline, they will be notified of the requirement to get tested weekly for COVID-19.
      • More than 98% of students who registered for on-campus classes last fall were able to continue with their classes after the Oct. 1 deadline for submitting vaccination proof.
