University of North Dakota
TEMPORARY MEDICAL CONDITIONS
Courtesy services may be provided to students who need access in the classroom and/or campus environments because of a temporary medical condition, such as a broken arm or leg. Unlike disability accommodations, the University is NOT obligated to provide courtesy services. Faculty and staff want to help students stay enrolled when appropriate; however, it is not the University’s intention to promote continued participation that is detrimental to the student’s health, well being or academic record.
Students are responsible for contacting professors regarding their absence and arranging to make up work.
SUGGESTIONS FOR ARRANGING COURTESY SERVICES
1. The student should discuss the feasibility of returning to class with his/her doctor or other professional treating the temporary medical condition and identify the types of assistance needed. Get a statement from the doctor naming the condition and identifying the needs, in case University personnel ask for verification of same.
2. The student is expected to make his/her own arrangements whenever
possible, e.g., having a roommate drive the student to class; borrowing notes
from a classmate or asking the professor to arrange assistance for in-class
3. If the student will be absent for a long time, it is important to discuss the situation with his/her professors to determine the feasibility of remaining in the courses. If it is necessary to withdraw from the University
after the last day to drop, contact the Dean of Students Office for assistance,
777-2664, McCannel, Rm. 180.
4. If the student is unable to make arrangements, he/she may be able to get help with:
