Injuries

Students with temporary injuries having difficulty with academic tasks, such as taking tests, taking notes, or getting around campus, should contact the Academic Achievement and Access Center (AAAC) for assistance. In order to get help, submit documentation of your injury. It can be a note or letter from your doctor or hospital discharge papers that states the injury and duration. As soon as that information is received by the AAAC, we will reach out to you by phone or email to schedule an intake appointment. Students with temporary injuries may be able to use JayLift Paratransit, in class note-taking assistance and scribes for exams. Some injuries can create emergency situations with academics before an intake can be scheduled, here are some suggestions for immediate assistance:

  • Contact your instructors letting them know of your situation (in person or email)
  • Ask a friend to take notes for you
  • Ask the TA to summarize what you’ve missed
