What to Expect as You Start the Fall Semester

We’re excited to start the fall semester with you, CityHawks! Here is some helpful information to help you prepare.  

Learning Options 

We are excited to offer more in-person classes this semester. We are also keeping online and hybrid learning options available to provide flexible options for our students. Learn more at CCD.edu/LearningOptions

Mask Mandate 

Currently, anyone visiting any of our locations is required to wear a mask indoors regardless of vaccine status to support safe learning environments in accordance with CDC recommendations. As a reminder, a persons’ vaccine status is protected health information; please refrain from asking fellow students, employees and campus visitors about their vaccine status. 

Vaccine Status 

Effective August 9th, all CCD employees are required to be fully vaccinated by September 13th.  

While there is no requirement for students (except for student hourly and work-study students), we encourage everyone to get vaccinated.

  • The State of Colorado offers $100 Walmart gift cards while supplies last to anyone who gets a first or second dose of a COVID-19 vaccine at a participating state-operated vaccine site. To find a participating location, visit the Colorado Comeback Cash website
