The Student Disability Services Office offers a wide variety of legally mandated services to students with temporary documented disabilities. Services are extended to students with temporary disabilities only for the duration of their functional limitations associated with their disability.
The eligibility process is the same as for permanent disability cases. After reviewing your documentation, a counselor will determine appropriate academic services and accommodations depending how you are limited in the academic setting. The only other time that temporary accommodations will be granted is if a student’s documentation is out of date, current testing is scheduled, and a student is awaiting their new testing results. In this instance a student will be granted accommodations only for the semester in which the testing is being completed and updated documentation must be submitted by the end of the semester for accommodations to become permanent.
After reviewing your documentation, a student disability services counselor will determine appropriate academic services and accommodations depending how you are limited in the academic setting. You will be given eligibility letters for your instructors outlining the requested accommodations that have been approved.
