Big Bend Community College has made the decision to make the COVID-19 vaccination a requirement for all students who will be accessing the physical campus and instructional sites for instruction, support, and services during the winter quarter.
Instruction for the Winter quarter begins January 3 and open registration begins December 6. Students will be asked to either attest to their vaccination status or have an approved medical or religious exemption by December 16 to avoid having their classes dropped for the winter quarter.
Students who are taking online classes only, and will not be coming to the physical campus, are not required to be vaccinated.
The deadline to ensure timely consideration of exemption requests and meet the December 16 deadline is Monday, December 6. Students that have already completed the attestation form do not need to fill it out again.

|First Shot||Second Shot|
