Students will be allowed free parking at any unmarked booth on the Liberal Arts Campus or the Pacific Coast during the next semester, the college said on Wednesday.
Other stands for staff, people with disabilities and the Veterans Stadium, which is used by the city for COVID-19 testing, are still off limits to students.
A parking pass for the next semester would have cost $ 30 or students could have opted for the daily permit payment before the college announcement.
The college is also expanding its program which offered vouchers to the campus bookstore in return for full student immunizations.
Earlier this month, the college announced it would offer $ 300 vouchers at the campus bookstore for students who got vaccinated before August 30. Wednesday’s announcement said the program was extended until September 30, but the voucher will now be $ 150.
A spokesperson for the school could not immediately say why the vouchers were cut in half, but said “people have responded positively to the incitement.”
Students can get vaccinated at various clinics around the city, including one located on the college’s Pacific Coast campus, located on Pacific Coast Highway and Orange Avenue. The school has created a portal where students can update their proof of vaccine and the school has previously said that the bookstore vouchers will be distributed as financial aid.
The LBCC joined Long Beach State University in July to announce that students and staff should be vaccinated to attend in-person classes in the fall or undergo regular testing.
Free testing locations have been set up on campus for unvaccinated LBCC students who are now required to submit weekly COVID-19 test results to continue attending classes in person. The school’s website says failure to meet the test requirement could expose students to progressive discipline.
