This page contains information and resources for students with chronic health conditions enrolled at SF State. The DPRC recognizes the full spectrum of chronic health conditions, including but not limited to diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, HIV/AIDS, heart disease, epilepsy, and many more. Some of the information and resources on this page are specific to students with chronic health conditions and some are relevant to all students with disabilities. All accommodations are individualized, and determined on a case-by-case basis. The DPRC staff can assist you with coordinating reasonable accommodations.
Symptoms associated with chronic health conditions may or may not have an impact on how you participate in an academic program. Under federal civil rights law, the university needs to provide you with reasonable accommodations related to the functional impact of your disability. Documentation of this impact by a medical professional is requested from you when registering with the DPRC. This documentation along with your self-report helps the DPRC Specialists to better assist you in identifying and setting up reasonable accommodations.
The following is a list of accommodations that you might be interested in and eligible to use as a student with a chronic health condition. You can find a complete list of accommodations offered by the DPRC on our Accommodations page.
