Message to winter 2022 new and returning students re: vaccine requirements

The following message was distributed on November 17 to winter 2022 new and returning students on behalf of the Office of the Registrar.

Effective Monday, January 3, students will be required to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 to access college campuses, facilities or properties.

Most winter 2022 programs will include on-campus, in-person learning. If you are required to access campus facilities for any reason, you must provide proof of vaccination through the college’s Mobile Safety App.

If you have not yet started your vaccine series, you will need to receive your first dose by November 20, 2021, to have sufficient time to become fully vaccinated and eligible to access Conestoga campuses on January 3, 2022. 

If you have received your vaccinations but have not yet uploaded your vaccine information, please complete the process as soon as possible to ensure a smooth transition for the upcoming term. If you need more information about submitting your vaccine proof or have other questions related to the college’s vaccination requirements, visit the COVID-19 information hub on the Conestoga website or contact

Thank you for your attention to this important matter. We appreciate your support in helping to keep our community safe and look forward to welcoming you to campus in January.
