COVID-19 Accommodations

Case Western Reserve University’s (CWRU) Disability Resources is committed to providing all students with opportunities to take full advantage of the university's educational, academic, and residential programs. CWRU’s Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy requires that all faculty, staff, and students whose work or study requires their presence on campus must establish that they are fully vaccinated, i.e., it has been two weeks since they have received their final dose of an approved COVID-19 vaccine. 

We recognize that students with documented disabilities may need assistance or accommodations in order to achieve this objective, and that some students may require an accommodation that exempts them from the COVID-19 vaccination requirement.
