The Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) leadership has determined all students attending on-campus classes or seeking in-person services at Cuyamaca College are required to be vaccinated. You will need to provide proof of vaccination to register for classes. Additionally, face masks/covers are required in all instructional and student services (i.e. counseling, financial aid, etc.) spaces on campus.
This decision was made in alignment with the District priority to protect and maintain the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and administrators. It comes after careful examination of San Diego County data related to COVID-19 and with recommendations from the CDC, California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, CalOSHA, and County of San Diego’s Public Health officials.
If you are not, or do not wish to be vaccinated, please register for online classes. Should you need assistance, we have a broad range of support services available.
If you have previously submitted vaccine documentation and been approved to take on-campus classes, no futher action is necessary.
Vaccination verification is required for all in-person instruction and services. Please submit proof of vaccination as soon as possible, it may take 48 hours to be processed.

HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
If you are enrolled in college courses on your high school campus, please follow your high school’s policies and protocols.
If you are taking a work-experience class and no other on-campus classes, please follow the policies and protocols of your work environment.
Unlike in the past, students with approved exemptions will be permitted to take on-campus classes beginning with the summer semester. If you have an approved exemption, you will be required to test weekly.
If you already submitted proof of full vaccination for fall 2021 or spring 2022, or an approved exemption for spring 2022, you do not need to resubmit those documents for summer 2022.
Once your exemption is uploaded, please allow 48 business hours for processing. You will receive an email regarding next steps.

If you are registering for on-campus classes during the summer 2022 semester, please upload your documentation (proof of vaccine or an exemption request) by June 6, 2022.
Check back in late May/early June for deadlines and information about the fall 2022 semester.
