We appreciate your cooperation as we do our best to assist with limiting the spread of the virus.

Updated Student Vaccination Requirements for Spring 2022

As we continue to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccination remains the most effective protection against the virus.  With the introduction of the Omicron variant and increasing number of COVID-19 cases statewide, the San Diego Community College District is updating the safety and health requirements for in-person classes.

Effective Spring 2022, in-person instruction will be limited to students who have been fully vaccinated per CDC guidelines against COVID-19. Students who are unvaccinated or have previously been exempted from the District’s vaccination requirement based on their medical status or religious beliefs will be limited to enrolling in online courses.
