Winter classes begin January 3, when college becomes a fully vaccinated campus 

VANCOUVER, Wash. – Registration for both winter and spring terms at Clark College opens on Tuesday, November 9.   

More than 40 percent of the approximately 1,200 classes on offer for winter term will include an in-person component—either as a fully face-to-face class, or as part of a hybrid model in which some class activities take place in person while others are completed online. Approximately 8,000 students were enrolled in Clark College in the 2021 fall term, and about one-quarter of all fall classes had an in-person component. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the college has provided free loaner laptops and other support for its online learners.  

This winter, the college will be offering additional cohorts of some of its most sought-after degree programs, including a winter cohort in Welding Technologies, and spring cohorts in Pharmacy Technician and CybersecurityWinter will also see expanded course offerings in the college’s Management program, including MGMT 120, “Supervisor as a Trainer Coach.” 

Additionally, the college will transition to being a fully vaccinated campus, meaning that all students participating in in-person classes, activities or services must be fully vaccinated or have an accepted medical or religious exemption on file before the beginning of the term. As in fall term, masks will continue to be required inside all college facilities. Learn more about the college’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including vaccination and exemption guidelines, at 

Data shows that the equity gaps in vaccination are closing, and we know that vaccinations are the best way to protect our community from COVID-19,” said Clark College President Karin Edwards. “That’s why we are becoming a fully vaccinated campus in winter term. I’m excited to welcome more students safely back to campus in 2022.”  

Winter term classes begin January 3, 2022. Spring term classes begin April 4, 2022. All students must complete the enrollment process before registering for classes. Visit to learn more.
