The ZotPass Program


The ZotPass Program

Starting Fall 2021, students on campus may be asked to “Show Your ZotPass!” to ensure compliance with the UC COVID-19 vaccination program, the Daily Symptom Check, and any applicable testing requirements.

The ZotPass integrates the Daily Symptom Check and compliance with the UC COVID-19 Program. The system will verify your compliance requirements and you will receive a confirmation ZotPass showing your status for the day.

ZotPasses look like this:

A “Green” ZotPass means that you will be allowed to enter an indoor location. A “Red” ZotPass means that you are not in compliance and may be restricted from accessing university resources and services.

ZotPass Guidance and FAQ for Staff and Faculty

What is the ZotPass?

  • Built on our experiences from the first iteration of the ZotPass used during the 2020-2021 academic year
  • This year’s ZotPass features integration with the following:
    • Compliance with the COVID-19 Vaccination Program
    • If the student is required to follow non-pharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) such as face coverings.
      *Note: Due to the universal face coverings requirement, all students are required to wear face coverings.
  • Compliance with asymptomatic testing (if needed)
  • Compliance with the Daily Symptom Check
  • The ZotPass will not:
    • Reveal medical information.
    • Tell you the student’s vaccination status

How does it work?

  • Students submit their Daily Symptom Check via email or using the ServiceNow app.
  • Students will receive their ZotPass via email or by accessing the ServiceNow app.

What do the colors on the ZotPass mean?

GREEN ZotPass - Student is Compliant; No additional NPI's needed; student is current with Covid policies / protocols; student must comply with general campus guidance / requirements; student is current with asymptomatic testing protocols (if needed). 

RED ZotPass - Student is Non-Compliant with one or more Covid-19 related policy, directive, and/or protocol. Students with a RED ZotPass may be asked to leave the campus.

Where and when should I check ZotPasses?

We encourage you to check ZotPasses where practical. It might not be a good idea to check ZotPasses for a large event being held outdoors, when participants have sufficient space to move around. A large lecture may also be impractical especially when all the students are wearing masks. It would also be difficult to check every student during the changeover between the lectures when time is limited.

You may consider asking students to show their ZotPasses if they are entering your office space or you have a small program and you don’t have a time crunch.
