Student Vaccination Policy FAQs

The following FAQs are a resource for quick information. If you have a question not addressed here, it may be submitted to vaccines@gcccd.edu. We will do our best to keep these FAQs current and updated regularly.

Q: I have received the first (of two) dose of the vaccine. Can I still attend in-person classes?

A: Please upload your documents indicating your partial vaccination status to the database link provided: https://selfservice.gcccd.edu/Student

Once you have received your second dose of the vaccine, please email your updated vaccination documentation and your student ID to vaccines@gcccd.edu

You must be fully vaccinated prior to the start of classes.  The deadline to submit proof of vaccination status for the spring, 2022, semester is Friday, January 21. 

Q: I am having trouble with the upload. What should I do?

A: Make sure your file type is pdf, jpg, png, gif, bmp, bm, tiff, or tif. If you are uploading from an iphone, make sure your image is not an HEIC file type.

 Further, please make sure your attachment is no larger than 10 MB.

Q: I uploaded my documents, what happens next?

A: Your documents will be verified by a health and safety specialist. Please allow 1-2 days for processing. Proof of vaccination documentation and exemption requests are reviewed in the order received.
