Student Request for Adjustment from COVID-19 Face Covering Requirement

Student Request for Adjustment from COVID-19 Face Covering Requirement

To comply with state and county public health orders, Colorado State University requires students and employees, including faculty and student employees, to wear a face covering in accordance with face covering requirement in order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 to other employees, students, and visitors to the University property. Colorado State University acknowledges that many of our students experience mental and/or physical impairments that either impede their ability to wear a face covering or that may be significantly impacted by wearing a face covering. A student may request an adjustment from wearing a face covering, with appropriate medical documentation, and request an alternative face covering, such as a face shield, or other temporary academic adjustment to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. Alternative face coverings and other temporary academic adjustment requests must be approved on an individualized basis through an interactive process, facilitated by the Student Disability Center, between the student and their Accommodation Specialist and academic program. Completing this form does not guarantee that a face covering exemption, alternative face covering request, or other temporary academic adjustment request will be granted.
  • Where Face Coverings Are Required:

    Students and employees are required to wear face coverings in the following locations and situations on all University property:

    • All indoor spaces including but not limited to hallways, dining halls, classrooms, residence halls, and offices.
    • All outdoor spaces when maintaining six feet of distance from others is not possible.

    Face coverings are not required in private, unshared offices with a door that can close when occupied by a single person.
