In January 2022, the South Orange County Community College District (SOCCCD) approved a vaccine requirement for all students taking in-person or hybrid classes at IVC, Saddleback, ATEP, or satellite locations. All students enrolling for Summer 2022 and Fall 2022 semester on-campus or hybrid classes should be fully vaccinated or plan on meeting the vaccination requirement. At this time, fully vaccinated does not require the new booster shots, until the CDC states otherwise. Review our Vaccine Requirement FAQ.
- If you are neither vaccinated nor planning on being vaccinated, we encourage you to enroll only in online classes.

Verify Your Vaccination Status
If you are taking an in-person or hybrid class and are not seeking a medical exemption, you will need to verify your vaccination status. Click on this link to securely enter your vaccination information or state-provided QR code (for students enrolling for in-person or hybrid classes only). You will need your college email address to log in to the vaccination verification upload site. Students who do not verify their vaccination status will be dropped from any in-person or hybrid classes in which they have enrolled.
