Q. Is proof of vaccination required when coming onto campus?
A. Yes. All students, employees and visitors must upload proof of vaccination and fill out the Daily Symptom Checker in the CLEARED4 system and be prepared to check-in with their blue or green pass in order to access any District or College location.
Q. How do I provide proof that I have been vaccinated?
A. RCCD is utilizing the CLEARED4 vaccine verification system (see CLEARED4 details below). Fully vaccinated students will receive a “blue pass” and partially vaccinated students will receive a “green pass” once a negative test result has been confirmed. Students must fill out the the Daily Symptom Checker on CLEARED4 and show their blue or green passes at campus check-in stations to access on-site instruction and services.
Q. What if I’ve had only one dose of the vaccine (partially vaccinated)?
A. Partially vaccinated students must upload proof of partial vaccination in the CLEARED4 system AND undergo weekly COVID-19 testing with evidence of negative test results prior to coming on campus. Evidence showing your fully vaccinated status must be submitted no later than September 30, 2021 for the Fall 2021 semester.
Q. What courses and support services are available to unvaccinated students?
A. Unvaccinated students will be able to access online student support services and enroll in online distance education courses. Only vaccinated, and partially vaccinated students with weekly negative test results, will receive CLEARED4 blue and green passes and be allowed in face-to-face courses.
Q. Can unvaccinated students with medical conditions or religious objections apply for an exemption?
A. No exemptions for students will be provided, even for medical or religious reasons. Online classes and online student support services are the accommodations available to unvaccinated students.
Q. What other options do we have besides being vaccinated?
A. Online classes and online student support services are available to unvaccinated students.
Q. Which COVID-19 test results are valid at RCCD colleges?
A. On campus tests, and diagnostic RT-PCR tests performed by off-site testing facilities.
Q. What happens if I don’t provide proof of vaccination? Will I be dropped from my classes?
A. Students must provide proof of vaccination via CLEARED4 by 11:49 PM PST on August 19 to avoid being dropped from all face-to-face (F2F) or Hybrid classes. Unvaccinated students will be redirected to online classes.
Q. Why did RCCD change vaccination requirements?
A. Due to worsening conditions associated with COVID-19, the Riverside Community College District Board of Trustees approved a new resolution (No. 02 – 21/22) on August 10, 2021 requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for students, faculty, classified professionals and visitors who will be accessing District facilities or the campuses of Moreno Valley College, Norco College and Riverside City College.
