COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update to Learners


Across our digital and physical campuses, our sense of community and of shared purpose remains strong during these unprecedented times. As fall approaches, we continue to focus on our learners and providing the best possible experiences.

In addition to a strong set of health and safety measures, Humber also has a new COVID-19 vaccination policy. By October 18, individuals coming to a Humber campus or facility in person must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated or that they have received an exemption from the college. You can find out more information about the new policy here.

As the Real Estate Education Programs are delivered completely online, we will be able to continue to support you in your learning journey and you will only be required to complete the Vaccination Declaration Form and provide proof of vaccination or exemption, if you are coming to campus. You will receive the necessary forms and instructions when you purchase an in-person examination.

We are committed to keeping our students and employees connected and informed. Please return to our website, as our FAQ and COVID-19 Updates pages will continue to be updated to provide key resources and information about college initiatives and what to expect when coming to campus.

Thank you to our community for continuing to support our learners and each other.

Dear Real Estate Education Program Learners,

Beginning on September 20, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result taken no more than 72 hours prior can be uploaded to the Humber Guardian App, which is used for your daily COVID-19 Self-Assessment.

Those who already have the app will need to update the app to have the most up-to-date information and functions. To update the app: 

  • from the Guardian’s home screen, users can click on About/Preferences > Data Update > Check for Updates. Note: You may need to log out and log back in to view the update.

To help make this transition as smooth as possible, step-by-step uploading instructions have been created. Once you are on the webpage, identify and click the scenario that applies to you for step-by-step instructions.

Learners in the Real Estate Education Programs will need to register as a guest in the app before following the steps to upload proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result. 

To register as a guest:

  • Click the yellow COVID-19 button in the app
  • Select Submit Proof of Vaccination/Test Results

While we implement this new process, please plan to have either a hard copy or electronic copy of your proof with you for display for the next few weeks, or until your proof has been confirmed and approved. You will be able to check the status of your submission in the app.  

Please be patient as we implement this new process and be prepared that there may be delays when entering campus or facilities as each person is screened.

Dear Real Estate Education Program Learners,

As a follow-up to the communication sent on August 31st regarding COVID-19 Vaccination Status declaration and Return to Campus, we wanted to provide an update on the requirements to access college facilities.   

Since September 7, everyone accessing college facilities has been required to complete the screening tool on the Humber Guardian app and confirm that they are fully vaccinated or have proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test.   

Beginning on September 20, anyone coming to campus must show the result of their screening (Green QR code) on the Guardian app and either proof of full vaccination or a recent negative test result to access Humber campuses and facilities.   

Below please find details of these requirements based on your individual circumstances.  

You are fully vaccinated  

  • Proof of vaccination will need to be provided in order to access campus. This can be done with a hard copy or email receipt of vaccination.   

You are partially vaccinated and are intending to become fully vaccinated by Saturday, October 18, 2021  

  • Until you are fully vaccinated, proof of a negative COVID-19 test will need to be shown to access campus. This can be done with a hard copy or email result of the negative test taken within the 72 hours prior to attending campus or Humber facilities. Valid proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen) must clearly show the individual’s name, type of COVID-19 test performed, date and time of the test, and the negative result.  

Not intending to become vaccinated/Requesting an exemption  

  • Pending the approval of an exemption, you may continue to access college facilities for the time being provided that you show proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test upon entry. This can be done with a hard copy or email result of the negative test taken within the 72 hours prior to attending campus or Humber facilities. Valid proof of a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or rapid antigen) must clearly show the individual’s name, type of COVID-19 test performed, date and time of the test, and the negative result. If an exemption is approved and your on-campus learning or work is accommodated, you will need to continue to provide proof of a negative test taken within 72 hours of each visit to campus.

Thank you for your ongoing cooperation as we continue to work to ensure a safe return to campus.

Dear Real Estate Education Program Learners,

Following the July 16 provincial announcement, Humber College announced the introduction of a COVID-19 vaccination policy for students, learners, employees, contractors and any visitors to the college’s campuses or facilities. This is in addition to ongoing health and safety measures on our campuses and facilities.

Here is how the COVID-19 vaccination policy and COVID-19 Vaccination Status Declaration and Return to Campus Acknowledgement applies to Real Estate Education Program learners.

While the Real Estate Education programs will continue to be delivered online, limited in-person examinations at various locations are being offered. Any learner participating in an in-person examination must complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Status Declaration Form prior to attending a Humber campus or facility in person.

Note: any learner who is completing a Real Estate Education program fully online does not need to complete the Vaccination Status Declaration. However, should you need to come to a Humber campus or facility, you will then need to complete the COVID-19 Vaccination Status Declaration Form and any other required documentation or screening questionnaire.

Scheduling an in-person examination
Once your in-person examination is scheduled, you will receive an email with instructions; followed by the Humber Vaccination Status Declaration form. Learners attending our partner College locations need to follow the host College’s protocol. Learners will receive an email providing specific instructions for those locations.

  1. Learners scheduled for an in-person exam will receive an email from Humber College via DocuSign containing the COVID-19 Vaccination Status Declaration and Return to Campus Acknowledgement, along with instructions for completing the form. This is a DocuSign form. Please note that you will need an Internet connection and browser to complete the form. You will not need any special software.

  2. Learners must complete and submit the COVID-19 Vaccination Status Declaration and Return to Campus Acknowledgement form prior to coming to Humber College.

This means declaring either:

  1. that you are fully vaccinated
  2. that you are not yet fully vaccinated and are intending to become fully vaccinated by Saturday, October 18, 2021
  3. that you are not intending to become vaccinated and are requesting an exemption through Humber’s Exemption Process (an email will be provided with instructions when a learner selects status c)

If you indicate your status as b) or c), you will be required to provide proof of a current negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours of attending campus in order to access campus, until you are fully vaccinated or have received an individualized accommodation plan through Humber’s Exemption process. Please ensure that you allow time for this process when scheduling your exam.

  1. By October 18, all individuals coming to a Humber campus or facility in person must provide proof that they are fully vaccinated or have received an exemption, and that any accommodation(s) granted is being followed.

  2. Details about the process for providing proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be shared with the Humber community by mid-to-late September.

All individuals attending a Humber campus or facility are required to complete the screening tool on the Humber Guardian app or an alternative method (i.e. a verbal screening) when attending campus in-person even when fully vaccinated. 

A vaccination policy FAQ for the Humber community has been created to help provide further information and it is updated on an ongoing basis. Specifically, learners who may have questions about completing the COVID-19 Vaccination Status Declaration and in-person concerns/ attending campus should contact covidreporting@humber.ca.

Thank you for your ongoing cooperation as we continue to work to ensure a safe return to campus.
