Accommodations for temporary disability (e.g. injuries or temporary mobility impairments following surgery) are not covered under Section 504 or the ADA. As such, students are not guaranteed any assistance in these situations. The Office of the Dean of Students often assists students with short-term need for accommodations. In addition, the Office of Academic Accessibility may work together with the Health and Counseling Center, the Dean of Students’ office, or the Title IX office, to provide temporary accommodations on a case-by-case basis.
In order to request temporary accommodations, please complete the Student Application and provide Documentation of Temporary Disability. Documentation must include a diagnosis, functional limitations necessitating temporary accommodations, suggestions for appropriate temporary accommodations, and the estimated length of time accommodations will be needed. Appropriate clinical documentation needs to be delivered to the Office of Academic Accessibility before accommodations can be provided.
