Temporary impairments are generally not regarded as disabilities, but conditions such as broken bones, short-term illnesses and recovery from surgery or medical conditions can impact a student’s academic progress.

The Services for Students with Disabilities office can provide temporary services to assist students in their academic work.  An appointment may be set up with one of the professional staff members to coordinate and arrange the services that are needed. Documentation of the medical condition may be necessary to arrange services.

If the temporary condition involves mobility issues (e.g. use of walker or crutches), the University of Nebraska – Lincoln does not provide personal shuttle services to and from classes.  For more information, contact the SSD office at 402-472-3787.
