Seattle Central Requires COVID-19 Vaccines and Masks for Students & Staff
Seattle Colleges will be a fully vaccinated higher education institution in accordance with Gov. Jay Inslee’s recent COVID-19 Proclamations. The decision comes after consultation with the board of trustees, health and safety officials, and labor partners.
Full vaccinations are required for students, staff, and faculty coming to campus this fall, with exemptions for medical or religious reasons. This allows the colleges to reopen and return to in-person teaching and learning, to the fullest extent possible, while safeguarding against transmission of COVID-19 and its variants. Students must report vaccination status by Nov. 1; we will update Continuing Education students about the process for that soon.
In accordance with Washington State guidelines for the college, everyone attending in-person classes is also required to wear a face mask inside buildings, to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In addition, everyone who comes to an in-person class (Capitol Hill, Wood Technology Center, Seattle Maritime Academy and Georgetown) will be required to complete a daily health screening questionnaire each day that you visit.
