The health and safety of our community remains our top priority, and we continue to closely monitor the public health situation in our county. Due to recent increases in COVID-19 cases, we are temporarily shifting to remote operations through January 28, 2022. The decision is being made out of an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of students and employees.
The public health situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to change, and we will provide further updates as needed.
The Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District (GCCCD) leadership has determined all students attending face-to-face 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, facemasks are required on campus indoors and outdoors when you are within six-feet of another individual.
The 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 submitted proof of full vaccination for the fall 2021 semester or you are planning to take online-only classes, no further action is required.
For intersession (January, 2022) and spring 2022 semester, if you wish to take in-person/on-campus classes or wish to make an appointment to receive in person student services (i.e. counseling, financial aid, admissions & records, etc.) you will need have your vaccine documentation verified.
Please submit proof of vaccination as soon as possible to ensure your registration priority is not impacted.
DEADLINE to submit proof of vaccination:
