The college has closely monitored the status of COVID-19 in our local community, Washington State and beyond since winter 2020. We know how valuable in-person learning is for our students’ education and career preparation, and for certain programs in-person instruction is required by the college’s accrediting bodies. YVC has been successful with the stringent safety protocols in place for classes taking place on our campuses since Summer 2020 and by adhering to these protocols we can both protect the safety of our campus community and provide essential in-person learning opportunities.
