Immunocompromised Requests Due to COVID-19

Immunocompromised Requests for Adjustments Due to COVID-19

The Disability Services Program (DSP) reviews requests for and facilitates COVID-19 related adjustments for enrolled students at the University of Denver (DU). TEMPORARY adjustments may be approved by the DSP for immunocompromised students due to an underlying medical condition, treatment plan, medication regimen or who are otherwise determined to be at a heightened risk by their licensed health-care professional with respect to COVID-19. Approved temporary adjustments are provided at no cost to the student.

Students who are immunocompromised, but who are asymptomatic and/or have tested negative for COVID-19 and would like to request academic adjustments due to their increased risk should first work with their academic advisor to determine what course options and delivery methods are available to reduce their exposure and/or best meet their needs.

After working with their academic advisor, if a student would still like to request temporary adjustments or ongoing accommodations associated with being immunocompromised, the student should complete the Request for COVID-19 Related Temporary Adjustments Form linked below or complete a Request for Accommodation Form for ongoing disability accommodations. If you have questions about which is the right form for your circumstances, please contact the DSP for assistance.

The DSP requires documentation from your clinician(s) or licensed healthcare provider(s) to support your request.

Temporary adjustments may remain in place during the pendacy of the pandemic emergency as determined by the city, state, and federal authorities.

Temporary COVID-19 related adjustments may include but are not limited to:

  1. Late arrival/leaving early from a class
  2. Preferential seating
  3. Housing adjustments
  4. Ability to leave a classroom unexpectedly
