Reasonable Accommodations Request

Massachusetts Community College members, including students, faculty, and staff must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and submit verification of their fully vaccinated status to the College absent an approved reasonable accommodation consistent with the Student Vaccination Policy.

All requests for reasonable accommodation, including any requests to be exempt from vaccine requirements for medical or religious reasons, will be considered consistent with applicable laws and legal guidance and the Board of Higher Education Policy on Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity & Diversity for the Massachusetts Community Colleges. The College will engage in an interactive process to determine if you are eligible for a reasonable accommodation, and if so, whether the requested accommodation is reasonable and does not create an undue hardship for the College and/or does not pose a direct threat to the health or safety of others in the learning and working environment, as applicable.

If unable to submit verification of full vaccination status and seeking a reasonable accommodation to comply with the Student Vaccination Policy, you should complete and submit the electronic form along with the requested documentation.

To apply for a reasonable accommodation, complete and submit the Reasonable Accommodation Request Form and email it along with supporting documentation to studentvax@necc.mass.edu.
