In order to protect the health and safety of our CCA community. All new unvaccinated residents are required to upload in Workday COVID-19 test results, no later than 72 hours in advance of move-in. See How to upload your COVID-19 test results to Workday below. This documentation will remain confidential and will only be accessed by the Dean of Students Office:

  • The COVID-19 test results uploaded need to be swab for current infection (PCR test, not an antibody test)
  • If you test negative, you will be allowed to move in as planned
  • If you test negative, but you develop symptoms before your travel/move date, please STAY HOME and notify ResEd@cca.edu
  • If you test positive (and you currently live off campus) - you will not be allowed to move in for the current semester, and you’ll need to wait until next semester to move on campus, and notify deanofstudents@cca.edu
  • Schedule your testing appointment one and a half week in advance of your Move In, to ensure your test results arrive on time.
    • For residents arriving on August 19 (Thursday) - Unvaccinated students with an approved exemption and Students who plan to be vaccinated upon arrival to San Francisco, you should schedule your COVID-19 test the week of August 9, 2021.
