The Office of Student Disability Services provides accommodations to students with temporary disabilities arising from injury, surgery, or short-term medical conditions. For example, a student who breaks a hand or wrist is often accommodated through a scribe for exams and a notetaker for class.
To receive accommodations for a temporary disability, the student must submit a doctor's note to our office indicating the type of disability, limitations, prognosis, and estimated duration. Additionally, the student should contact all instructors to discuss means of completing class requirements and exams during the period of the temporary disability.
To find out more information about services for temporary disabilities or to schedule an appointment, contact our office at (319) 335-1462.
All documentation reports must be type-written and signed on professional letterhead bearing the professional’s address, phone and clinical affiliation.
