As of March 1, 2022, masks are still required in the Counseling & Testing Center, Office of Accessibility, and Computer Based Assessment and Evaluation.
This practice aligns with updated university policy allowing for masks to be required in areas where employees have close contact (more than 15 minutes and less than 6 feet) for services.

If you are concerned about a student’s engagement in an online course, please feel free to submit a Help-A-Zip referral. Our team will work alongside you to outreach and offer resources.
