Faculty, staff, and graduate assistants may seek a new or different COVID-19 related accommodation for the 2021 Spring Semester if they fall within one of the categories for increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19, as defined by the CDC. ADA accommodation is for the employee and does not extend to members of the employee’s household who fall into categories of increased risk of severe illness from COVID-19. We strongly encourage submitting requests to Human Resources no later than October 10, 2020 to allow adequate time for review and planning for the upcoming Spring Semester. Faculty, staff, and graduate teaching assistants must submit the necessary and appropriate medical documentation supporting a new or different request to commence the review process. Requests for accommodations should be submitted to Human Resources through the University’s existing Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations process.
