Vaccination Update

Due to City of Philadelphia mandates, all students, faculty and staff must be fully vaccinated. To register for in-person or hybrid classes, students need to be fully vaccinated or have an approved exemption. Students who are not vaccinated or do not have an approved exemption are able to register for fully online courses. Please see our College COVID-19 Updates for more information and visit our Virtual Student Resource Center for support.

COVID-19 Updated Testing Procedures

The College has revised its COVID-19 testing procedures for individuals who are required to come to campus for work or to attend classes. Since Jan. 10, all individuals on campus, regardless of vaccination status, have been required to be tested every 3 days in order to access College buildings.

Beginning Monday, Jan. 24:

  • Individuals with approved exemptions will still need to be tested on campus for COVID-19 every 3 days as required by the City of Philadelphia mandate.
  • Vaccinated individuals, whether they have received their booster dose or not, will need to be tested on campus every 7 days.

These testing requirements are in effect through Feb. 14, 2022.

Please help us make the testing process more efficient:

In addition, we are establishing two testing entrances and areas. Please enter the testing area in the Winnet Student Life Building through the Winnet Courtyard.
 
Testing hours:
  • Main Campus – 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Northeast Regional Center – 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Northwest Regional Center – 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • West Regional Center – 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
After hours, you can schedule a rapid test from a vybe urgent care location nearest the Main Campus or each Regional Center.
 
Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

Faculty and Staff

Faculty and staff should access the Winnet Student Life Building’s main entrance, which faces 17th Street. Students may enter the building through the Winnet Courtyard.

Supervisors: In order to keep testing wait times down, we are asking that you work with your employees to divide up testing days as evenly as possible so that members of your area are not all required to be tested on the same day.

Vaccinated vendors and contractors must be tested every 7 days, while those with an exemption must be tested every 3 days.
