Here’s how students can request an exemption

In certain circumstances, TCC may grant an exception to wearing a face covering/mask on campus. This includes a student who has a health condition for whom a face covering would pose a danger.

If you are seeking an exemption, the first step is to submit a New Student Intake Form to the Office of Educational Accessibility before coming to a campus.

If you’re already registered with the Office of Educational Accessibility, contact your EA campus counselor.

Additional documentation may be required. Documentation must:

  • Verify that the individual meets the ADA definition of disability (i.e., has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities); and
  • Describe the needed modification; and
  • Show the relationship between the individual’s disability and the need for the requested modification.

Examples of reasonable modification to a face mask policy:

  • Allow a person to wear a scarf, loose face covering, or full face shield instead of a face mask;
  • Attend all appointments by telephone or video calls.
  • Take classes online.
