Returning to Campus

Shifting to Remote Operations

The health and safety of our community remains our top priority, and we continue to closely monitor the public health situation in our county. Due to the record numbers of COVID-19 cases seen in San Diego County in recent days and our continued sense of caution, we are extending remote operations through January 28. We are now planning for a full return to in-person operations on Monday, January 31, 2022.

 

All student services will be offered remotely during this time

 

A friendly reminder that vaccinations and masks are required for anyone on campus once we return.

 

If you are registered for an on-campus intersession class, please check your email for further directions from your instructor. Contact your instructor if you have further questions about your classes.

 

The public health situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to change, and we will provide further updates as needed.  

Vaccinations 

Anyone enrolling in on-campus classes at Grossmont College or receiving on-campus services must be fully vaccinated. Vaccinations are not required for students who are only taking online classes and seeking services through remote platforms.

 

For those enrolling in on-campus classes for the spring semester that begins January 31, 2022, the deadline to submit documentation of being fully vaccinated is January 21, 2022.

 

Students whose vaccination status was validated by the college for the fall 2021 semester do not need to resubmit vaccine documentation. Masks are required for anyone on campus, regardless of their vaccination status.
