Housing & Dining

All students, faculty, and staff are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

  • If you were on campus this fall and have already verified your vaccination status, no further action is required.
  • If you will be new to campus this spring, the deadline to be fully vaccinated is January 10, 2022. You must attest (tell us) that you are fully vaccinated on or before this date by following these instructions. Please update your vaccination status in Workday as soon as possible.
  • You will be required to show proof of vaccination when you arrive on campus for classes or housing move-in. 
  • If you cannot attest that you are fully vaccinated by January 10, you will be dropped from classes and will not be allowed to move in if you are new to student housing in January. 

If you are unable to receive a vaccination in your current location and need a temporary extension, or would like more information about applying for a permanent exemption due to a disability, medical, or religious reason, please email deanofstudents@cca.edu.

All students, faculty, and staff must provide proof of vaccination or approved exemption to access campus. Vaccination or exemption will be verified with an ID sticker, and IDs must be worn at all times. Read more here.

If you have a positive test, symptoms, or are exposed to COVID-19

If you are sick, stay home! If you have a positive test, are showing symptoms, or have had close contact with someone who is positive for COVID-19 (defined as being within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period), you should follow the steps outlined here. Students who have tested positive, show symptoms, or who have been exposed to COVID-19 should notify deanofstudents@cca.edu immediately. 

CCA is responsible for initiating the contact tracing process and will work with any sick students, faculty, or staff, along with public health officials, to identify and contact individuals who may have been exposed. Please reach out to your healthcare provider directly if you have any concerns about your health or your symptoms worsen.

Winter Break Travel Recommendations and Restrictions

Travel restrictions both internationally and within the U.S. have changed recently, and may continue to change quickly in response to new variants and policies. International travel may be especially challenging. We strongly encourage you to plan ahead, pay close attention to changing travel restrictions, remain flexible, and reconsider travel plans if necessary. 

International travel

  • The International Student Affairs and Programs (ISAP) team keeps the Travel in F-1 Status page updated with current guidance about vaccine requirements, travel restrictions, and COVID testing requirements. International students should contact isap@cca.edu with specific questions.
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) maintains up-to-date international travel information and requirements, and recommends that all travelers carefully review current requirements for any country you plan to travel to or through (including connecting flights).
  • Be sure to check current requirements for COVID testing and accepted vaccines, and allow plenty of time for vaccination and testing before you plan to enter or return to the U.S.
  • Some students may choose to remain on campus through the break to avoid the uncertainty of travel restrictions. See below for information on housing and dining during the break. 

Travel within the U.S.

  • Students who are traveling within the U.S. should also review any COVID-related requirements for domestic flights and local jurisdictions to avoid a delayed return.  Please review the CDC’s guidelines regarding Domestic Travel During COVID-19.
