Your Checklist for Fall 2021
Tomorrow, August 30, begins the Fall 2021 semester and we are thrilled to welcome you back to Long Beach City College! Here is the checklist for what you need to do before and after you arrive on campus.
Upload Your Vaccination Record OR Take Your Test Before You Visit Campus
Long Beach City College requires all Fall 2021 students to be either fully vaccinated or take weekly COVID-19 testing if they are taking an in-person class or if they are going to be on campus to use any services in-person (i.e. Library, Student Success Center, Financial Aid).
- Here are the directions on how to update your COVID vaccination record on your desktop and on your mobile device.
- You can now upload your weekly COVID-19 test to the Viking Student System. Click on the Student Service tile and then click on the Student Health Information. If you need technical assistance with submitting testing results, you can contact the Student Technology Help Desk at (562) 938-4250.
- You will not get a confirmation after you upload your vaccination verification or your test results. LBCC will contact YOU if there are any issues.
- Starting tomorrow, Mon., Aug. 30, LBCC will provide free weekly COVID testing conducted by Virus Geeks on-campus. Please check the “Vaccination & Testing Mandate” tab for more info.
Take the Viking Health Screening Form the Day You Visit Campus
Please fill out the Viking Health Screening form the day you visit campus (prior to you stepping on campus). After you complete it, take a screenshot on your cell phone or tablet, or print it out. You will need to show this at the Viking Health Screening table.
Arrive at Least 30 Minutes Early
We highly recommend that you arrive at least 30 minutes early prior to your class or your appointment with the on-campus service. LBCC wants to make sure that you have ample time to go through the Viking Health Screening table.
You Still Need a Mask
Students are required to wear a face-covering (mask), regardless of vaccination status, while indoors and in public areas on campus.
Go to the Viking Health Screening When You Arrive on Campus
Before students can attend their class or use an on-campus service, you must check-in at one of the multiple screening stations at either LAC or PCC to obtain a daily clearance. These booths will be open at 7:30 a.m. Staff will scan your forehead to take your temperature. If you are cleared, you will receive a sticker to put on your shirt or wristband. If not, you must leave campus immediately.
Go to the room or office you need to access. LBCC staff will make sure you have a sticker or wristband from the health screening station and are wearing a face covering. Hand sanitizer will be available. They will check you in and let you know what to do next.
