Welcome to Pierce College! Whether you are a student, an employee or just visiting, there are a few things you will need to do before coming to campus.

Notice: Due to current processing times, you may still receive reminder emails and texts even if you have attested and verified your vaccination or exemption status. Do not worry – you will not be withdrawn from your classes if you have completed the verification process.

Complete Your Health Check Form

Visitors to campus and students and employees who have submitted vaccination exemptions must fill out the Health Check form every day before coming to campus. By filling out this short health screening, you certify that you are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

Get Vaccinated

Pierce College is a fully vaccinated campus. That means students and employees are required to receive a COVID-19 vaccine to learn and work on campus, unless they have a religious or medical exemption. Learn more about vaccination requirements and how to get your vaccine on our Vaccinated Campus page.


Safety Plans

Safety Plans must be submitted to host pre-approved events and activities on campus. If you are coming to campus for work or classes, you do not need to submit a Safety Plan. There are two versions of the Safety Plan, depending on what type of activity you are planning on campus:

  • Supplementary Safety Plan - A streamlined safety plan template intended to cover all of a division’s instructors in their respective classrooms, or a list of department employees in their respective work areas.
  • Full Safety Plan - The standard safety plan is used for situations that involves more risk to a large group of people, such as athletic events or commencement ceremonies.
