Fall at Clark College – what you need to know
- Roughly one-third of all fall term classes will have an in-person component to them.
- The college strongly encourages students to get vaccinated against Covid-19, but does not require vaccinations to attend Clark College unless they are also employees of the college or are enrolled in certain healthcare programs that require direct patient contact.
- Per Gov. Inslee's August 18 order, all Clark College employees must be fully vaccinated by October 18, 2021. This includes part-time, temporary, and student employees. It applies to all employees, whether they are working remotely or on-site.
- For the time being, everyone on campus must wear an appropriate face covering and observe social distancing requirements, which is now 3 feet in most circumstances. This policy (and the exact definition of safe social distancing) may change as fall term progresses, based on evolving guidance from the state.
- Additionally, the college will continue with its plan for a gradually phased-in restoration of on-site activities and operations, with some services and events returning during fall term, and more services and events returning in the 2022 winter term.
- College athletics will return to play in fall term. View our plan for doing so safely.
- Child and Family Studies (child care) remains open in a limited capacity.
These decisions comply with Gov. Jay Inslee's proclamation covering how higher education should operate. College leadership has carefully reviewed the guidance and is applying it to the college’s Covid-19 Exposure Control, Mitigation and Recovery Plan.For more information about fall term and the reasons behind these decisions, please visit our Student FAQ.
