Services for Students with Temporary Impairments

Temporary impairments such as broken bones, temporary illness, or while recovering from surgery are not commonly regarded as disabilities. The degree of limitation of major life functions and the duration of such impairments are usually not substantial enough to cause them to fall under the statutes that give rise to the provision of services to Laramie County Community College students with disabilities.
 
However, as a courtesy to students and their faculty, Disability Support Services provides some services to students with temporary impairments. These services typically involve advocating for moving classrooms to accessible locations when a student's impairment prevents classroom access; access to adaptive technology; information regarding accessible transportation and temporary disability parking; notetaking and exam accommodations.

Tutoring

Tutoring is a free service provide for all LCCC students. Accommodations provided for tutoring sessions as needed. For more information contact the Student Success Center.
