Temporary Disabilities

Accessibility Resource Center provides services to students with disabilities based on the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.  Although ADAAA guidelines and California state law may not require that campuses provide accommodations to students with temporary disabilities, Chico State has opted to provide accommodations and support to temporarily disabled students.

 A temporary disability is defined as a transitory impairment with an actual or expected duration of six months or less. Some examples of temporary disabilities include broken extremities, hand injuries, torn ligaments, post-surgical recoveries, etc. Temporary disabilities do not generally qualify as a disability under the ADAAA; however, the severity and duration of the condition will be taken into consideration

Please contact Accessibility Resource Center (ARC) for assistance with requesting and arranging temporary accommodations.
