Student Support during COVID-19
COVID-19 can personally impact students in a variety of ways, even if they themselves do not have the virus. Student Advocacy and Support is here to support and assist students who are navigating some of these challenging circumstances. We can
help students communicate with professors to request flexibility in how to complete course requirements, notify instructors of an absence, or explain how to withdraw from class(es) due to COVID-19.
If a student has a disability and/or chronic health condition that makes them high risk for COVID-19 students should request a meeting with Services for Students with Disabilities to discuss how these
concerns can be best accommodated.
Students seeking assistance in requesting academic flexibility from faculty or university administrators due to personal circumstances further impacted by COVID-19, but unrelated to an existing health
condition, can complete the COVID-19 Academic Flexibility Request Form.
Students who test positive for COVID-19 may submit an absence notification request to gain assistance in notifying instructors about the student’s absence and when the student expects to re-engage in
academic work (if known). Students are responsible for contacting their instructors once they are able to discuss missed coursework.
Students taking time away for treatment of or recovery from COVID-19 are eligible to request a medical withdrawal for a current or previous term.
