October 4, 2021: Important Vaccine Requirement Update 

The October 15, 2021 Vaccine Requirement is coming up soon, and we want to provide you with an important update for the Fall semester.

If you are not fully vaccinated by October 15 and are accessing in-person, on-campus classes, you can continue with your Fall classes by undergoing twice-weekly COVID-19 tests. Testing will occur on campus. If you have a negative test result, you can proceed to your class or event. If you are traveling between campuses, you will not need to be retested at each college. We will be providing information on testing soon.

For the Spring 2022 semester starting in January, all students coming to campus will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, or have an approved medical or religious exemption. Register for online classes for Spring semester if you will be unvaccinated at the time the semester begins.

August 2021: VCCCD Board of Trustees unanimously approved the policy COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement for Employees and Students at its August 10 meeting. The policy requires that everyone who accesses in-person, on-site campus/District programs or who participates in off-site District/college services in person will be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19, effective October 15, 2021, or to have an approved medical or religious exemption. 

If you are on campus with an exemption, you will be required to wear a face mask and provide weekly negative COVID-19 tests.

As a reminder, face masks are mandatory at all campuses indoors, regardless of COVID vaccination status. They can be voluntarily removed outdoors—regardless of vaccination status—or inside when eating, drinking, or working alone in a closed space. (Remember to stay at least 6 feet from other people when your mask is removed in these situations.)

Once you’re vaccinated, upload your vaccine card to the Vaccination Self-Report Form on the Healthy Return to Campus mobile app. Get info and instructions here
