Safeguarding the
RVCC Community

NEW COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

Raritan Valley Community College is working together as a community to keep our campus safe. The health and safety of our students and the entire College community is always our top priority. Therefore, all RVCC students, faculty, and staff must show documentation of being vaccinated against COVID-19 by November 1. To maximize the safety of our community, it is recommended that all unvaccinated students, faculty, and staff schedule their vaccinations now before the start of the fall semester.

Students may register for the fall 2021 semester even if they are not yet fully vaccinated. However, students will not be able to register for spring semester classes unless they show proof of vaccination. Registration for the spring 2022 semester begins November 1. The spring semester begins January 19, 2022.

Students who register for a course that ends after January 19 must be fully vaccinated by January 19 or they will not be permitted to continue in the class after that date.

To begin classes in the spring semester, students, faculty, and staff must be fully vaccinated. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people are considered fully vaccinated

  • two-weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
  • two-weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

Students who are enrolled in completely online credit classes ONLY or select professional development courses do not need to provide vaccination documentation.

Instructions for uploading your vaccination documentation will be available in September.

Students who have any questions should email DOSS@raritanval.edu.

Faculty and Staff who have any questions should email Mary Ann Johnson, Assistant Director of Benefits & Payroll, maryann.johnson@raritanval.edu.

Effective immediately, as an important protective measure, face masks are required in all RVCC buildings.

The College continually monitors the CDC guidelines for COVID-19 and reserves the right to make changes to these mandates.
