The PASS System – Student Access

All classes with an in-person component have a vaccination “prerequisite.”  Students must be fully vaccinated to enroll.  Students with an approved exemption are required to comply with weekly testing requirements.  SDCCD is using Cleared4 to give faculty and staff a quick and easy way to verify if a student meets COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements.  Students cleared for in-person instruction and student appointments/activities will be provided a “Blue Pass.”  Students who have tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours will be issued a “Green PASS.”  Students who do not meet COVID-19 vaccination and/or testing requirements will be issued a “Red PASS.”  Specific details are at COVID-19 Information for Students | San Diego Community College District (
