Exemption of Face Covering Accommodation Request 

Students must complete the Exemption of Face Covering Accommodation Request form found below.  Students must also provide supporting documentation from their medical provider.  The Director of Academic Support and Disability Services will review the documentation and communicate with the student regarding accommodation approval status.

If approved, students will receive a document stating their accommodation for a face covering exemption.  This document will remain on file in the office of the Director of Academic Support and Disability Services.  In addition, it will be the student’s responsibility to provide a copy of their accommodation to their professors and other recommended staff members.

Any questions or concerns regarding this procedure should be directed to Emily Myers, Director of Academic Support and Disability Services, via email at emyers@ehc.edu.
