Student Vaccination and Testing Requirements

SDCCD will no longer require students to provide proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test for in-person classes. The district will continue to strongly recommend that students get vaccinated and boosted.

The following classes still require vaccination. Enforcement will be at the local level within the department and students will be notified via the class schedule:

  • All Nursing and CNA Classes (City and College of Continuing Education)
  • All Allied Health Classes at Mesa College
  • EMT Courses at Miramar College

Effective immediately, vaccination information will be hidden from Campus Solutions.

Mask Requirements

The District will continue requiring all individuals to wear face coverings while on District properties or participating in District activities. We will monitor case rates and trends in San Diego and may modify this requirement as needed. Please visit https://www.sdccd.edu/students/covid19 for the latest up-to-date information.
