Seattle Central is opening this fall as a vaccinated campus, so all students, staff, contractors, and volunteers coming to the campus will need to attest that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine. Everyone must also wear face masks on campus and fill out a daily wellness check form to visit campus.

We look forward to seeing you in person soon!


Students must report vaccination status by Nov. 1

Seattle Central College will operate this fall as a vaccinated campus, which means staff, students, contractors, and volunteers must be fully vaccinated to work, attend classes, on receive services on campus, with exemptions for medical or religious reasons.

All students are required to report their vaccination status or file for an exemption by Nov. 1, 2021. You can report your status now using ctcLink. Students who do not register their vaccination status or claim an exemption by Nov.1, may be unable to register for Winter Quarter 2022 classes.

Return to full in-person services rescheduled to Nov. 1

The Seattle Colleges District's fall quarter Return-to-Campus date has been postponed to Monday, Nov. 1. This is in response to Gov. Inslee’s October 18 vaccine mandate for state employees and the recent outbreak of the COVID-19 Delta variant.

Please note the following updates for Seattle Central College:

  • There are no planned changes to instruction for fall quarter and all face-to-face class times will be held as listed in the online schedule. Faculty with questions should reach out to their respective deans.
     
  • Central will add a second day of drop-in student services beginning the week of Sept. 13 until Nov. 1. In-person services will be offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

For more details, visit the Seattle Colleges District website.


Seattle Central requires COVID-19 vaccines 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.

Employees will have until Monday, Oct. 18 to become fully vaccinated or receive exemption approval.

More information detailing the vaccine verification and attestation process will be provided in follow-up emails and posted on the Welcome Back website.

Fall quarter will offer more instruction in person

We are planning to offer more classes in person this fall quarter, depending on the status of the COVID-19 pandemic. You will notice that many classes in the fall class schedule are currently listed as hybrid. If conditions improve, part of those courses could move to in-person instruction. But if a class is currently listed as an online course, it will remain in that mode for fall. All the dates and times for classes will remain the same, regardless of mode. We plan to make a final decision about hybrid classes by early September – please check our website, Canvas, and your email for information.


Requirements and protocols for entering our buildings

  1. Complete a form attesting that you do not have symptoms for COVID-19.
  2. Bring a picture ID
  3. Wear a face mask

The only open entrance to the Broadway Edison building is entrance A on 1701 Broadway Street. Use this entrance even if you need to access a different building in that campus.

Check with your instructor or supervisor for details on access to the Health Education Center, Wood Technology Center, and the Maritime Academy.
