COVID-19 Vaccination and Booster Requirement

On August 24, 2021, the North Orange County Community College District (NOCCCD) Board of Trustees voted to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations for all employees, and for students enrolled in on-campus classes with allowances for religious or medical exemptions as defined by law. New student applicants will be required to upload proof of their vaccination status, or request an exemption, before they will be able to enroll in in-person classes.

As part of the NOCCCD COVID-19 vaccine requirement, all employees, and students over the age of 12 using campus facilities and/or taking in-person classes, labs, or accessing on-campus services, will need up-to-date vaccinations, which now includes a single booster dose when eligible*, on or before August 15, 2022. Students will be informed when they can upload their updated documentation in myGateway.

All new students attending Fullerton College for the Fall 2022 semester and beyond are required to take in-person classes. Fully online class schedules will not be allowed as the school will be returning to mostly in-person classes for the fall semester.
