Students with Temporary Conditions

For students who need to explore temporary conditions (such as for a dominant broken arm/wrist or for a concussion with sustained symptoms): 

  • CDS is available for a consultation to discuss options. To schedule a Welcome Meeting, please review the steps outlined on this page. 
  • Not all temporary conditions are situations that fall within CDS role to address with accommodations. In some cases, students will need to explore options with professors without CDS involvement. 
  • Facilitation of any accommodations requires reasonable time frames to assess and coordinate. Accommodations may not be able to be facilitated immediately even when temporary situations are new with potentially immediate academic consequences. 
  • No Personalized Transportation Service as an Accommodation: Please note that personal transportation and travel to and around campus are the responsibility of each individual, regardless of personal situation. CDS and College of Charleston do not have any personalized, door-to-door transportation services for students with chronic or temporary conditions.   

Please review the Temporary Conditions FAQ Page for additional information that might be specific to your situation.
