Temporary Disabilities

Students who encounter a temporary injury or illness that significantly impacts their ability to function may be eligible for accommodations. Students in need of temporary disability services can contact the SDS office to schedule an appointment to meet with a staff member to determine possible accommodations such as temporary accessible parking, housing accommodations, note-takers, or testing accommodations. Students anticipating surgery that will result in a temporary impairment are also eligible for services through SDS.

The Student Disability Services Office encourages students with temporary disabilities to meet with an SDS staff member prior to the surgery to discuss the various options available and to develop a plan for the provision of accommodations with faculty members and other departments at Murray State University.
