Temporary Illness or Injury

Students with temporary illnesses or injuries may not be eligible for formal accommodations with the Office for Disability Accommodations (ODA). However, as a courtesy of the University, ODA may be able to provide some academic assistance with note taker paper, exams, or accessible classroom furniture.

Requests for Excused Absences and Emergency Notification at the University are referred to the Office of Student Ombudsman Services. For more information, please contact Alfreda Horton at 601.266.4025 or email address, alfreda.horton@usm.edu.
