COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement

In the interests of everyone's health and safety, Seattle Colleges has chosen to be a fully vaccinated campus per Governor Inslee’s higher education proclamation. This requires all students, staff, and faculty to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. An individual is considered fully vaccinated two weeks after receiving the final dose of the vaccine. Exemptions to this requirement may be granted for medical or sincerely held religious reasons.

Note: each of our colleges is looking to host additional free pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinics. Details will be provided when available.

The accordion boxes below offer information for specific groups regarding the vaccination requirement as well as reporting and verifying vaccination status.

Requirements 
All students are required to report their vaccination status or file for an exemption by Nov. 1, 2021. Students who do not report their vaccination status or claim an exemption by Nov. 1 will not be allowed to register for Winter Quarter 2022 classes until they report their status or file an exemption.
