Students with temporary medical conditions: process for obtaining parking hangtags

A temporary medical condition is one that, when healed, allows the student to resume normal activities within three months. Examples are a sprained/broken ankle, surgery recovery, or other medical condition that limits the students’s ability to walk unaided for a distance of 400 feet.

A temporary medical condition may also be defined as a chronic medical condition (one that is not expected to heal) or a medical condition that will take in excess of three months to heal. In this case, the University will provide the student with a bridge space while the student applies for a state-issued handicapped placard from the state in which they reside.

Process

  • A student who meets the criteria listed above should submit to Health Services and the Parking Office documentation written and signed by the student’s physician, stating such medical condition and the expected duration of time the medical condition will last.
  • Student must have a valid parking decal.
  • The student will be given a handicap hangtag for their vehicle's rear-view mirror. The hang-tag will clearly state the expiration date.
  • The student shall then be entitled to the use of any handicap space on campus until the expiration date listed on the tag. These hangtags are not renewable.  Maximum total duration is not to exceed 90 calendar days.
  • If the physician expects the temporary medical condition to last more than originally planned, the student is required to obtain updated information in order to extend the service and issue a new hangtag.

While any handicap space is available for the student with a temporary medical condition and proper handicap parking pass, Parking Services cannot guarantee specific spaces will be available.
