Academic Relief Forms

Undergraduate students facing chronic and significant mental illness that compromises their ability to complete academic requirements (attending classes, completing assignments) for an extended period of the semester may seek Academic Relief.

Information on the university’s Academic Relief policy can be found in the Undergraduate Catalog.

Students may apply for Academic Relief through the online portal.

Cook Counseling providers can supply supporting documentation for students who have been in on-going care with a CCC provider prior to applying for Academic Relief. Please note: On-going care is defined by attending individual counseling, group counseling, and/or psychiatric appointments focused on meeting specific personalized treatment goals. Attending a Cook Connect (triage) and/or Crisis Consultation Appointment does not meet criteria for established on-going care.

Outside Provider Forms for Referral to Cook Counseling Center

If an outside provider wishes to refer a VT student to the Cook Counseling Center for counseling or psychiatric services, they are requested to submit the Outside Provider Referral Forms packet.
