Temporary Injuries & Illnesses

The Disability Access Office (DAO) works with students experiencing temporary injuries and illnesses in order to facilitate short-term accommodations. Temporary injuries refer to non-recurring medical conditions of short duration (generally six months or less). Examples of temporary injuries and illnesses include broken limbs, manual injuries, mobility issues, concussions, and impairments resulting from surgical recovery.

Students requesting accommodations for a temporary injury should contact DAO directly in order to schedule an access meeting with a member of our staff. Additional documentation to support your request for accommodations may be requested.

Documentation from students with temporary injuries and illnesses should indicate the current impact of the condition and provide an estimated time of recovery.
