Temporary Support

Temporary conditions lasting less than 6 months may not meet the definition of a disability and therefore, may not be eligible for accommodations. Support and assistance or referrals to appropriate offices on campus can be provided to students with temporary conditions. Due to the temporary nature of their condition, students should be proactive and maintain ongoing communication with Health Services, their Class Dean, and their faculty, as appropriate.

In the event a temporary injury results in substantial limitation that meets the definition of a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), students may request accommodations via the Accommodate portal by submitting written evaluations from treatment professionals documenting the nature of the illness/injury, along with functional limitations and how the accommodations would remove barriers to education.
