Archived COVID-19 Campus Operations

Effective January 21, 2022:

  • Please consult the respective websites of member schools, centers, and affiliates as each school will have differing COVID protocols. Some schools are starting the semester with remote learning, some are offering on-line courses all semester. Some schools are requiring two vaccination shots plus a booster; some are specifying that N95 or KN95 masks be worn. 

  • Also consult the Consortial Registrar’s web page for updates.

  • Most GTU courses will be presented using remote modalities. Some are starting remotely with the hope of meeting in-person later in the semester, and a few courses are meeting in-person from the beginning. Please contact your professor if you have questions about your course format. 

  • The GTU requires two vaccination shots to enter the Hewlett Building for classes or library use; in the coming months, a booster may be added to that requirement. Please continue to send your vaccination verification to vaccine@ses.gtu.edu. In compliance with California health regulations, masks are required in the Hewlett Building (through at least February 15). K95 or KN95 masks are preferred.

Effective December 15, 2021:

  • In accordance with California's revised health guidelines, face coverings are required when inside a GTU building, irrespective of vaccination status.
