Temporary Injuries

You are here

Although DSS works primarily with students with permanent disabilities and chronic medical conditions, our office does provide temporary parking and transportation accommodations to students with short-term needs.  To apply for a temporary parking or transportation accommodation, please visit the Parking and Transportation section of the DSS website. 

The Office of Academic Life & Student Transitions assists students who may need accommodations due to COVID-related illness or other temporary or acute illnesses or conditions.  Students in need of temporary academic accommodations due to accident, illness, hospitalization/surgery, or other situations which may not be considered disabling under ADAAA, work with Academic Life & Student Transitions to receive the academic accommodations and support they may need to maintain their academic programs with minimal interruptions.  To request temporary academic accommodations, students should do the following: 

  1. Notify professors of current absence and/or injury/upcoming surgery as soon as possible.

  2. Contact Dean Lori McClaind in Academic Life & Student Transitions.

  3. Fill out the Student Absence Form as needed.
