    Temporary Accommodations and Services

    The Student Academic Support Service (SASS) Center 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, the director of SASS will determine appropriate academic services and accommodations depending how you are limited in the academic setting. The director of SASS will work with you to determine the best accommodations for your situation. You will be given eligibility letters for your instructors outlining the requested accommodations that have been approved. 

    Examples of temporary disabilities:

    1. Broken hand or arm with which you write.
    2. Extended stay in the hospital; more than 2 days. 
    3. Temporary emotional problems that cause extensive lack of sleep, anxiety and stress. 
    4. Complications of medical treatment.
    5. Broken leg or foot which impedes mobility.
