Disability Services supports students who may need accommodations on a temporary basis. 

Temporary accommodations are typically approved for one semester and are usually implemented to serve students with short-term physical or psychological impairments.


For students who have experienced a concussion, symptoms can vary in duration and intensity. Students may qualify for temporary academic and housing accommodations. Faculty/Staff can use the Concussion Management form for reference or referral. 

  • Students should have documentation from their current treating provider 
  • Students should contact DS to discuss academic accommodations or academic flexibility, if needed.  
  • If the concussion is severe, students may want to consider a reduced course load or dropping a course

Physical Injuries 

For students who have sustained a physical injury, students may qualify for temporary housing or academic accommodations.

If you need immediate support, students should be referred to accessibility@oxy.edu
