If you believe you have a short term condition that is substantially limiting (i.e. pregnancy, broken limbs, or short term impairments following surgery or other medical treatments), you may be eligible for temporary assistances through Student Disability Services.
REQUEST PROCEDURE FOR TEMPORARY ASSISTANCES
Individuals wishing to request temporary assistances should complete the Request for Services Form as fully as possible. Students should also submit documentation from a qualified healthcare provider that supports the request for temporary assistances. This information can be provided by having the healthcare professional complete the Verification of Temporary Disability Form. Once completed, both pieces of information should be mailed or faxed to the SDS office and the student should schedule a meeting to discuss their need for assistance further.
POTENTIAL ASSISTANCES FOR TEMPORARY MEDICAL CONDITIONS
All temporary assistances are determined on a case-by-case basis.
Examples of these assistances include:
- Notetaking assistance
- Extended test time
- Scribe or use of a computer for exams
- Accessible tables and/or chairs in the classroom
