Updated: Requirements On-Campus Classes and Services
The following safety measures are now in place at PCC.
COVID-19 testing is available for all students enrolled in a face-to-face or hybrid course, or accessing in-person services which require you to be on campus.
All students (Vaccinated or Unvaccinated) are not required to test weekly, but it is recommended.
Some select high exposure classes such as athletics, or performing arts, may be required to test weekly. This will be communicated to those classes by the faculty. If weekly testing is required, the testing week is Sunday - Saturday. Students may use our on-campus testing options or choose to submit test results for other labs.
Testing Guidelines for students:
- At PCC's on-campus testing sites, students must show a photo ID at the testing check-in counter
- Students must test in a timely manner if instructed to do so by PCC’s Covid Support Team
- If sick, a student should get tested immediately for Covid-19, go home, monitor symptoms, and follow isolation instructions while waiting for the test result.

Students may be asked to fill out a health survey prior to attending their classes. The student health survey can be found here. If cleared, the student will receive an email with a green checkmark and the completion date and time of the survey. If a student is not cleared to be on campus, the Covid Support Team will reach out with instructions.
Through Summer 2023 sessions, students need to submit valid proof of full vaccination or apply for an approved medical exemption prior to registering for classes. Students are not able to complete their in-person class registration without a valid vaccination record or approved exemption on file.
Partial vaccination can be accepted if not yet due for the 2nd dose. These requests should be emailed to CovidSupport@pasadena.edu
Vaccinations or approved exemptions are not required to register for online classes.
Beginning Fall 2023, Covid vaccinations or approved exemptions will no longer be required to register for in-person classes.
Students should fill out a Covid Support Form to report Covid symptoms, exposure, or a positive diagnosis.
Masking is optional but recommended in all indoor public spaces. The mask should be a well-fitting medical mask, or a well-fitting high filtration reusable mask with a nose-wire. Students can pick up free medical grade masks at PCC's onsite testing centers.
