COVID-19 Updates

 

Policies

 

Grossmont College, the nation's leading transfer school to San Diego State University, has fully reopened for on-campus classes and services. Students enrolling in the upcoming summer session who are unvaccinated will have the opportunity to request a medical or religious exemption.  Students who receive an approved exemption will be accommodated to take on-campus classes but will be required to get tested for COVID-19 on a weekly basis. Exemption requests for the summer semester must be submitted by June 6.

 

If you already have an approved exemption for the spring 2022 semester, you do not have to submit a new exemption request for summer 2022 but will have to be tested for COVID-19 weekly or risk being dropped from class. 

 

For those who are vaccinated, masks are now only required in instructional and student support areas. Elsewhere, masks are optional. Unvaccinated students are still required to wear masks in all indoor areas. Masks are not required while outdoors.
