Student Vaccination Requirement

COVID-19 Vaccine Policy for Students

Students, faculty, and staff will be required to submit documentation of COVID-19 vaccination by January 2022. This vaccine requirement is aimed at ensuring the safest learning and working environment possible for all members of the STCC community. The deadline for students to submit documentation of vaccination is January 10, 2022.

You can find a COVID-19 vaccination clinic near you with the Mass.gov Vaccine Finder.

We are now accepting documentation of COVID-19 vaccination inoculation for students. Please carefully review the important information below to ensure that you are able to access campus for class, library use, resources, and/or to transact business.

All students taking courses with an in-person component and/or students who intend to be on campus for any reason should take the following steps to upload documentation of vaccination. Please note that if you have already submitted documentation of your vaccination, you do not need to do so again.

For additional information please see the Return to Campus Frequently Asked Questions page.

Reasonable Accommodations

The Request for Reasonable Accommodations for students is a two-step process. You should submit your reasonable accommodation request and provide necessary documentation no later than January 10, 2022. The first step is to complete and submit required documentation. Carefully review the important information below to ensure that you are able to complete the process. If you have already received an approved request for fall semester 2021, you need to follow the process below for spring semester 2022.

STEP 1:

  • Open the Form for Students Requesting Reasonable Accommodations. A login window appears.
  • Log in with your STCC account username and password. A window appears with your name, date of birth, student ID and email address automatically populated.
  • Complete each section marked with a red asterisk (*)
  • Click the Next button.
  • Type your first and last name to certify that you read and understand the Disclosure/Consent and agree to electronically sign the form.
  • Click the Sign Electronically button to submit the form.

You will receive an email confirmation that your documentation has been received and is in process or has been rejected. Please note that this is not an approved request for accommodations. Your file will be reviewed and your document will either be accepted or rejected within 72-hours of submission. Correspondence will be sent to your STCC email. If your document is rejected, more information will be shared about next steps. If you have questions or require additional information regarding your upload, please contact the Health & Wellness Center at healthservices@stcc.edu.

STEP 2:

The College will contact you to schedule a date and time for step 2. It is an interactive process to determine if you’re eligible for a reasonable accommodation. The individualized interactive process is estimated to take a minimum of ten (10) business days following the receipt of satisfactory documentation supporting your eligibility for reasonable accommodation. In order to allow adequate time for the individualized interactive process, you should submit your reasonable accommodation request and provide necessary documentation no later than January 10, 2022.
