Students who have incurred a concussion should first contact their professors and
provide them with documentation regarding their injury so that they can discuss their
situation and immediate concerns.
Students who are experiencing post-concussive symptoms beyond 5 to 10 days should
seek assistance from SSD. The symptoms may include but are not limited to headache,
dizziness, irritability, diminished concentration, sleep disturbance, and intolerance
to stimulation such as lights and sounds. SSD has assistive technology that can support
students in alleviating post-concussive symptoms associated with extended periods
of mental exertion.
Students requiring academic accommodations based on symptomatology will be authorized
for accommodations on a temporary basis for one semester. For students whose symptoms
continue beyond one semester please refer to our cognitive disability documentation
guidelines. - Faculty/staff - Other Resources
It is the obligation of the student to reach out to SSD if their symptoms continue
beyond one semester or there is a change in their symptoms during the semester.
