Coming to Campus? Fill out a Check-In Form

Skagit Valley College campuses are currently closed and in Remote Operations. In an effort to more efficient support SVC employees, students and visitors who must be on campus, SVC Security has implemented a new check-in and check-out system for individuals who plan to visit SVC Campuses. The new system is required for all employees working on campus, all students attending approved courses on campus, and all approved visitors (e.g. vendors, contractors, etc.) visiting any campus. Please select the check-in option below that applies to you.

Information About Masks, Social Distancing, and Vaccines

  • SVC is operating under the Governor’s guidance for Higher Education.
    • Masks are required for anyone in buildings.
    • Six-foot distancing is also required.

A Safe Place to Work and Learn

At Skagit Valley College, the safety of our students, employees, and visitors is our primary concern. The following information will inform you what SVC Security services are available to you.
