Long COVID-19 Guide to Accommodations

The AEC is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with Long-COVID related needs. The AEC engages in the interactive process to determine eligibility as a student with a verified disability*. Working with curriculum requirements, documentation from treating professional, and student input, the AEC will determine reasonable and appropriate accommodations for eligible students. 

The AEC prescribed accommodation(s) may differ from the student’s requested accommodation. However, accommodation(s) will provide an equally effective alternative. Prescribed accommodation(s), if approved, are on a per-semester basis. Previously eligible students will not be automatically eligible for future semesters.

Students experiencing limitations from Long-COVID who are not already registered with AEC, must register with the AEC. During the application process students will be asked to upload documentation. Treating professionals should complete an AEC’s Long-COVID Verification Form [pdf].  

Students already registered with AEC can upload a completed Long-COVID Verification Form [pdf] by login into MyAEC and uploading additional and/or updated documentation, see left side menu for link.
