All faculty, staff, students and visitors across all U of I locations must use face coverings whenever in any U of I building, including during class. Students with a medical condition that is believed to affect their ability to comply with the face covering policy should complete a CDAR Application with medical documentation to request a reasonable accommodation.. Documentation should be on letterhead from a licensed professional, include the individual's diagnosis and functional limitations that limit the ability to comply with the face covering policy.
Students requesting accommodations due to a medical condition must complete the interactive process. The interactive process is a term used to describe the procedure for identifying need for accommodations due to disability/medical condition. This process is composed of the CDAR application, meeting with CDAR professional, and the submission and review of medical documentation related to the disability/condition. Completing the interactive process does not guarantee accommodations will be granted.
Students with a documented disability or medical condition that may put them at a greater risk of COVID-19, as identified by the CDC, should fill out a CDAR Application and provide medical documentation of the condition and concern to initiate the interactive process. Documentation can be attached to application, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 208-885-9404. For more information on the application process, see our New Students page. After submitting documentation, call 208-885-6307 to schedule a meeting with a CDAR professional.
Students currently registered with CDAR needing to change or add accommodations due to COVID-19 should call 208-885-6307 to schedule a meeting with a CDAR professional. Additional documentation may be necessary.
Students without a documented disability or medical condition requesting accommodations for reasons related to COVID-19 should email email@example.com or call 208-885-6307 and we can provide information or referral to who best to address your specific situation or concern. Students can also email firstname.lastname@example.org for general questions about the University resources related to COVID-19.
