Temporary Medical Accommodations

Courtesy services may be provided to students who need access in the classroom and/or campus environments because of a temporary medical condition.  Temporary medical conditions for this purpose are those that occur and are expected to resolve while the student is enrolled in current classes.

Student Accessibility Services will attempt to assist students dealing with temporary medical conditions in their efforts to remain enrolled in courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the steps listed below. BSC cannot guarantee that services will be provided in all situations, but personnel of the college will make every effort to assist as possible.
 
In the event a student is hospitalized, the student can contact:

How to Apply

Students needing assistance with temporary medical conditions should follow these steps:

Step 1:
The student is expected to make his/her own arrangements for assistance when possible.
 
Step 2:
If the student is unable to make his/her own arrangements for specific needs, the student can submit the following Request for Assistance with Temporary Medical Conditions form to arrange for possible assistance.

If the student is unable to make his/her own arrangements for specific needs, the student can submit the Request for Assistance with Temporary Medical Conditions form to arrange for possible assistance. (Please note: Equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches or temporary accessible parking permits need to be accessed through the student's health care provider.) 

Step 3:
If the medical condition prevents the student from attending classes for an extended period of time, the student will need to contact each of his/her instructors to explain the absence. Each instructor will advise the student on how the absence will affect the student's grade and whether it is feasible to remain enrolled in the class.

Step 4:
If  it becomes necessary for the student to withdraw from classes, the student can follow the drop/withdraw processes.
