Temporary Conditions

SAS provides accommodations to students with temporary conditions. If a student has a temporary condition or is suspected of having a temporary condition, then the student should proceed through the interactive accommodations process.  If you had a recent accident/incident, then SAS recommends that: 

  1. If there is immediate danger, contact 911.  
  2. For acute injuries students should work with Health & Wellness to create a return and management plan. This could potentially include a Dean’s Letter, connections to the Access Van, or exploration of a health leave. Please note that the process for temporary conditions is not the same as the Dean’s Letter process. For students who have had an acute incident, a Dean’s Letter is often the first step in the process. Accommodations may still be necessary, so connections to both processes may be needed.  

Process for Requesting Temporary Accommodations 

SAS accommodations may be an important part of a student's return and management plan. Students with temporary conditions who want to request accommodations are expected to engage in the interactive accommodation process. This includes: 

  • Step 1: Register with SAS 
  • Step 2: Submit Documentation
  • Step 3: Meet with SAS
