Feb. 4, 2022

Dear Dolphins:

We hope that your Spring semester is progressing well! This letter contains a summary of important information following President Yao’s message this week that the COVID-19 Booster is now required with an extended deadline of 12 noon on Feb. 13, 2022.

Who Needs to Re-Certify
The following two groups of students are required to re-certify with the COVID-19 Booster by 12 noon Feb. 13:

  • Students who received the second dose of a two-dose vaccine on or before Sept. 6, 2021
  • Students who received single dose of a one-dose vaccine on or before Dec. 6, 2021

Two Groups of Students who are not required to re-certify at this time:

  1. Students not yet eligible to receive the booster (i.e. less than five months since their second dose of a two-dose vaccine OR less than two months since their single dose of a one-dose vaccine). These students are required to certify a booster once they are eligible. Deadlines for booster certification based on student eligibility can be found on our website.
  2. Students who have already filed exemptions with supporting documents are not required to recertify unless expressly asked to do so by CSUCI.

In keeping with CSU policy and CSUCI requirements, vaccinated students who do not provide a COVID-19 Booster certification, by 12 noon Feb. 13, 2022, including supporting documents, will not be permitted to access the campus/programs. Unvaccinated students with qualified medical or religious exemptions are required to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing.

Please note that a complete, compliant certification is required to be permitted on campus. Students who are not yet certified may also follow the instructions below.

Instructions for Booster Certification
CSUCI is pleased to announce that we have contracted with Complio of American DataBank to manage the collection, storage, and review of vaccination records and has been fully vetted by the CSU Chancellor’s office for use by all 23 campuses. We are confident in their ability to provide systems that are secure and HIPAA-compliant, as well as provide prompt review and feedback on vaccination records.

CSUCI will migrate records for students who previously provided their booster certification within myCI. Once that has occurred, students will be notified to log into Complio to confirm the information.

Students who have not provided their booster certification should follow the simple how-to-guide to complete Booster certification today! Use the information below to log into the Complio system where you will be prompted to select a new password known only to you; this is the password you will use for future visits to the portal:

Visit: https://csuci.complio.com
Username: (your Dolphin email address)
Password: (the last four digits of your Dolphin/Student ID number)

Complio uses the word “order” for vaccination certifications; however, there is no cost for students to certify their status since CSUCI is absorbing the cost for certification for enrolled students.

If you have questions regarding the Complio submission process, you may contact their staff as noted below:

Email: complio@americandatabank.com
Telephone: 800-200-0853

If your question is CSUCI related, please contact the Dean of Students office.

For all certifications, CSUCI considers certification documents to be qualified unless or until CSUCI or Complio notifies you that your document does not meet the requirements, in which case you are expected to provide an updated document promptly to remain in compliance. With vaccination records, Complio will review and provide clearance, or request an update, within three (3) days.  Religious and medical exemptions are reviewed by CSUCI and will take longer to process.

Re-certify right away for a chance to win $50 Dining Dollars
To promote prompt re-certification, CSUCI will conduct raffle drawings from among all compliant vaccination certifications received by these dates, with a chance to win $50 in on-campus Dining Dollars for one of four drawings from among certifications received on: Feb. 4, 6, 9, and 13. Notice will be sent to those selected for Dining Dollars by Feb. 28.

Testing Requirements for Students with Qualified Exemptions
Weekly COVID-19 testing is required between Friday and Thursday for the following students who are taking classes onsite at CSUCI or an affiliated location (Channel Islands Boating Center, Santa Rosa Island Research Station, or Goleta instructional site):

  • Students with qualified medical or religious exemption already on file.
  • Students within 14 days of the last primary COVID-19 vaccine dosing. The 14-day testing period is not required after the Booster dose.

Mask Requirements
CSUCI will continue to require all individuals on the campus to wear high-quality masks while indoors (i.e., medical/surgical masks or KN95 respirators) except when actively eating or drinking. Masks will continue to be available in classrooms and other locations across campus.

Required COVID-19 Training
To further support a safe return to in-person courses and activities, students will be required to complete online training for CSU-Student Safety on Campus During COVID-19.  All students attending one or more in-person classes or accessing resources at CSUCI or affiliated locations (Channel Islands Boating Center, Santa Rosa Island Research Station, and Goleta instructional site) were required to complete this training prior to their return to the campus, and if not yet complete is past due. The online training can be accessed by visiting: CSU-Student Safety on Campus During COVID-19.

Additional Resources
You are also encouraged to visit the Spring 2022 Semester webpage that includes updates for COVID-19 Vaccine Information & Certification, FAQs, Campus Services & Resources, Campus Communication, Campus Cases & Reporting COVID-19, and goCI app.

Thank you for your patience and your cooperation to facilitate a safe environment at CSUCI for all who work, study, and live on campus. If you have any questions not addressed here, please contact the Dean of Students office so your questions can be directed to the appropriate area for a response.

Cindy Derrico, Ph.D.
