Did you turn your ankle, get a concussion or have an extended illness like mono? Conditions that impact you for less than six months are considered temporary and  L/AC assists with temporary accommodations.

Although temporary medical conditions such as injuries, surgeries, or acute illnesses do not legally qualify as disabilities and are not covered under federal disability laws, being seriously incapacitated can create a host of consequences. 

The Learning/Access Center (L/AC) supports students experiencing temporary conditions with navigating issues such as campus access (moving classes that are in inaccessible spaces), speaking with professors, attendance, and completing assignments/exams.

Please contact the L/AC at 718.802.3123 or to schedule an appointment to get help with a temporary condition. Students feeling the immediate need to speak with a counselor can call 718.687.5356 (available 24/7).

Documentation of Temporary Medical Condition: Please plan to obtain a dated letter from your medical provider describing your condition, including the duration and limitations of your condition, and upload all documents here: Document Upload.
