Student Support & Advocacy

Announcement: May 20, 2022

For those students who were approved for remote instruction during the Fall 2021 and/or Spring 2022 semesters due to medical conditions that put them at risk for COVID-19 complications, please note that this was a College-level approval that is not considered a disability-related accommodation. 

Students experiencing disability-related barriers they believe are preventing them from attending class in person and engaging in a meaningful learning experience during the Summer 2022 or Fall 2022 semester may contact OASID at oasid@tc.columbia.edu to discuss whether they may be eligible to receive disability-related accommodations.
