Covid-19 Vaccination Requirements

August 12, 2021

Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases and the latest information about the Delta variant, the Board of Directors of the Maine Community College System (MCCS) have voted to implement a vaccine protocol requiring all students attending classes in person at all Maine Community Colleges to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

All YCCC students must provide proof they received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine prior to attending their first in-person class. Students who require a second dose of a vaccine must provide proof of the second dose no later than 30 days from the date of their first in-person class. As a reminder, classes begin on September 13th, 2021. Students who are fully remote and will not be entering campus buildings for any purpose will not need to submit their vaccination documentation.

Request for Exemption or Accommodation

Students may request an exemption from the vaccination protocol. Students seeking a medical exemption should contact their college for more information and for a medical exemption form.

Approval of exemption is not guaranteed.  YCCC will be following CDC guidelines in reviewing requests for exemptions, and any request for exemption will be reviewed each semester.

Any student granted an exemption will be required to take weekly COVID tests and provide the test results to a designated college official.

YCCC will not consider exemptions based on religious or philosophical beliefs.

If you wish to request an exemption please email the MEDICAL EXEMPTION FORM to covid19@yccc.edu.
