Olympia, WA -- The Evergreen State College announced today that students, staff, and faculty will be required to show proof of vaccination prior to the beginning of the fall quarter for 2021.
The college’s goal is to safely bring as much in-person learning back to the campus as public health conditions allow when the 2021-22 school year begins on September 27, 2021.
“Requiring vaccinations will enable us to provide even richer in-person educational experiences for our students in the fall,” said Evergreen President George Bridges.
Students planning on attending The Evergreen State College this fall still have time to upload their vaccine verification or provide an approved medical or religious exemption prior to classes starting. How to upload vaccine verification and information on how to apply for a medical or religious exemptions can both be found on the college’s COVID-19 Health and Safety site.
The Evergreen State College will be awarding $1,000 scholarships to 10 lucky Greeners who have been vaccinated for COVID-19.
This is part of the “Shot of a Lifetime,” campaign and is being funded by Governor Inslee’s office as an incentive for Washingtonians to be vaccinated.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to be rewarded for doing something that is so much a part of the Evergreen community – taking action for the greater good,” said interim college president, John Carmichael.
