Temporary disabilities may include, but are not limited to concussion, surgery, acute (short-term) illness and injured limbs. These disabilities may qualify for temporary accommodations for a short period of time (several weeks to a full semester).
Students requesting academic accommodations through the Center for Accessibility and Disability Resources must provide documentation (PDF) of their temporary disability that supports the need for specific accommodations. Students should arrange an appointment with the Accessibility and Disability Resources Coordinator by calling 434.544.8339.
Wheelchairs, scooters and crutches are the responsibility of the student. Disability Services has a scooter available on a first come, first served basis for individuals with temporary disabilities. For more information, contact the Accessibility and Disability Resources Coordinator at .
