For Students, Faculty and Staff Coming to Campus

LWTech is following Governor Jay Inslee's updated the requirements for higher education. On Friday August 27, 2021 Governor Jay Inslee updated the requirements for higher education. The most relevant proclamations are Proclamation 12.5 and Proclamation 12-14.1 

Based on this proclamation, LWTech, like all other public colleges in King County, will be following face covering guidelines and tracking the vaccination status of all enrolled students who come to the LWTech campus.

Student Vaccine Attestation

If you plan to come to campus for any reason (attending classes or accessing other services), you must attest to your vaccination status. When you go to your LionsLink attestation tile you have the options of:

  • Attesting to the type and dates of the COVID-19 vaccine you have received OR
  • Attesting that you have a medical exemption OR
  • Attesting that you have a religious exemption

If there is an issue with your attestation, you will be notified by the college.

We recommend using the Firefox or Chrome browsers to complete the vaccine attestation process. For more browser troubleshoot, visit our Information Technology Services Guides page.

If you attest to a medical exemption, a college employee will send you a form that must be filled out by your healthcare provider. Please return the form promptly so it can be reviewed as part of your exemption request. Approval or denial will be communicated in writing to your student email address. You may download the form in advance:

If you attest a sincerely held religious belief has led to your exemption, a college employee will send you a set of standard questions that you must answer. Please return your answers promptly so it can be reviewed as part of your exemption request. Approval or denial will be communicated in writing to your student email address. You may download the questions in advance:

Dental Hygiene Employees and Students

If you are a student employee at the college or a student in the dental hygiene program, you may be required take additional steps. Please contact your supervisor and/or faculty for more information.

Attestations At Other Colleges

If you previously attested to your vaccine status at another college, please email Ruby.Hayden@lwtech.edu and request to have your attestation records reviewed from your prior college.

Employee Vaccine Attestation

Employees need to provide proof of your vaccination status before you come to campus. You do not need to repeat this process if you have done this already.

Please contact Human Resources to provide proof of your vaccination.

If you have previously received an exemption please refer to your exemption approval letter for specific masking requirements and in the next section below.

Medical and Religious Exemptions for Employees

Please contact Human Resources to begin the process.

Keep in mind that medical/religious exemptions and accommodations are two separate things. If an exemption is approved, you will engage in an interactive process with Human Resources and your Supervisor about whether an effective reasonable accommodation exists to allow you to perform the essential functions of your job.
