Welcome back to campus!

During Fall 2021, Woodland Community College transitioned to a combination of in-person and online instruction.

The Yuba Community College District is implementing a vaccine and testing policy starting Spring 2022 to support the health and safety of students, employees, and members of the community.

Steps for New & Returning Students


To comply with our District Vaccine & Testing Policy, students will need to take the following actions before the semester starts:

Step 1: Indicate how you will comply when you register

The District is developing a process for students to easily show proof of vaccination or testing. This will be broadly shared as soon as it is finalized. You are now able to complete your forms and upload vaccine documentation.

Step 2: Complete one of these three options:

Option 1

Get fully vaccinated

Individuals who are vaccinated are allowed to take in-person classes, and use services on campus.

Option 2

Get tested weekly

Unvaccinated students who are getting weekly COVID-19 tests are allowed to take in-person classes and use services on campus.

Option 3

Register for online-only courses

Students who are only taking online classes and utilizing online student services do NOT need to be vaccinated or tested.

Step 3. Submit Vaccine or Testing Documentation

If you are registering for face-to-face classes, you must submit your vaccine or recent testing documentation, before 5pm on January 21, 2022.

If you take your PCR tests on a WCC campus, you will have your tests automatically uploaded into the YCCD system. Students will only need to upload tests taken from other COVID-19 testing vendors.

Student Vaccination FAQs

Vaccines must be FDA approved; have an emergency use authorization from the FDA; or, for persons fully vaccinated outside the United States, be listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO). “Fully vaccinated” means the District has documented that the person received, at least 14 days prior, either the second dose in a two-dose COVID-19 vaccine series or a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine. (8 CCR § 3205(b)(9).)

Option 2 — Get Tested Weekly


  • Individuals who are not vaccinated are allowed to take in-person classes and use services on campus with weekly COVID-19 testing.
  • Face masks are still required indoors for everyone.
