Vaccination Attestation

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect each of us, CBC strives to protect the health and safety of the campus community, while offering more in-person instruction, services and activities. As part of that effort, students are able to attest to their vaccination status through the secure Student COVID-19 Vaccine Attestation Form. This requirement is in accordance with Governor Jay Inslee's Higher Education Proclamation 20-12.5 as of August 27, 2021.

COVID-19 vaccines have been proven to be safe and effective at reducing the risk of becoming infected with SARS-Co V-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19), in preventing serious illness and death in those who develop COVID-19, and in limiting the spread of COVID-19. Vaccines are one of the most critical and effective elements for COVID-19 prevention.

Masks, three-foot social distancing, and daily health attestation check-in protocols are still required while on the CBC campuses, regardless of your vaccination status. See CBC’s COVID-19 Campus Safety Measures.

All students enrolling in winter quarter 2022 are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with a vaccine by January 7, 2022, subject to authorized exemptions for a documented medical condition or sincerely held religious belief or practice.

Verify Your Vaccination Status

By January 7, 2022, verify your current vaccination status by providing your dosage dates or indicating whether you will be seeking a medical or religious exemption through the Vaccination Attestation/Exemptions Form below.

Vaccination Attestation/Exemptions Form

Note: Those seeking a medical exemption must submit the COVID-19 Student Vaccination Medical Exempt Form completed by their licensed heath care provider. Please see details below.

Medical Exemption Information 

In order to grant a reasonable accommodation to a student to remain unvaccinated due to a medical exemption, CBC must receive documentation from a health care provider. That documentation, the COVID-19 Student Vaccination Medical Exemption Form, must confirm that the student is medically unable to receive any authorized COVID-19 vaccine. The documentation must also include a duration the accommodation will be needed. For the purposes of this student medical accommodation request, a Health Care Provider includes all qualified and licensed MD, ND, DO, ARNP or PA professionals. Students will be notified of approval, denial or need for additional information within 21 days. Review CBC’s medical exemption process

Religious Exemption Information

In order to grant a reasonable accommodation to a student to remain unvaccinated due to a religious exemption, CBC must receive the student’s COVID-19 Vaccination Attestation/Exemptions Form on which the student has attested that they have a sincerely held religious belief or practice that prevents them from receiving any authorized COVID-19 vaccine. Social, political or economic philosophies, as well as mere personal preferences, are not religious beliefs. Students will receive notification of reasonable accommodations for their religious exemption within 21 days. 

Note: Students taking online classes who wish to come to campus for any services or activities must complete the vaccination attestation process.

For additional information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) below and the Student COVID-19 Vaccination Policy.

Online-Only Students

If you plan to enroll in online-only classes and will not participate in CBC in-person activities or services (e.g., tutoring, Hawk Central, advising, Fitness Center, Bookstore, or Library), you may forgo the attestation process. This option requires you to meet virtually with Counseling & Advising or Transitional Studies staff to confirm your intent to study exclusively online. 

Schedule an appointment to discuss this option with either Counseling & Advising or Transitional Studies (if you’re a student in ABE, ELA or High School Completion).

A registration block will be placed on your account each quarter, but the registration block may be removed at any time by completing the Vaccination Attestation/Exemptions Form.

This includes emergency use authorization.
