When courses required for graduation, including related sections like labs and recitations, are only offered as in-person, students who are not able participate due to geographical circumstances such as COVID-related travel restrictions or disability and/or chronic health conditions that make them high risk for the virus have been advised to do the following:
- Check with their adviser to see if there is a web conferencing or online alternative that will fulfill the degree requirement
- Reach out to the instructor listed in MyRED to see whether it is possible to meet the requirement in a fully remote setting
- Complete an Academic Flexibility Request with Student Advocacy and Support (some colleges may require this form)
Departments are asked to work with instructors to support fully remote arrangements in these circumstances whenever possible.
