It is the policy of the college to follow the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines for dealing with communicable diseases and blood borne pathogens. To provide a safe environment for students, faculty and staff, students with chronic communicable diseases may attend college when, through reasonable accommodation, the risk of transmission of the disease and/or the risk of further injury to the student is sufficiently remote in such setting so as to be outweighed by the detrimental effects resulting from the student's exclusion from the college.
