Information about the classroom environment for students during the 2021-22 academic year.

Learning Plan for 2021-22

Starting fall quarter 2021, TCC is requiring everyone who works or studies on campus to fill out a Covid-19 vaccination self-attestation form or a vaccination exemption form. Governor Jay Inslee's recently revised Higher Education Proclamation allows campuses who require vaccinations more flexibility in reopening.
